Here are more vegan breakfast ideas.

I’ve been to many Knights of Columbus pancake breakfasts before I went vegan. Sadly, pancakes tend to contain dairy, so I don’t go to those anymore.

For a vegan alternative, here are chocolate banana pancakes from Bianca Zapatka.

16. Banana Cookies

I prefer making cookies out of premade cookie dough (usually Sweet Loren’s) because I live alone besides the four cats that strive to steal most of my food and drop the rest on the floor. However, nothing beats homemade cookies, like these banana cookies from Loving It Vegan.

Here are more vegan cookie recipes.

17. Banana Split Tart

If I could give out an official award for the company with the best vegan recipes, Almond Cow would win by a landslide. From a plethora of desserts to pizza, almost any recipe can be made with either plant-based milk or pulp created with the Almond Cow plant-based milk machine.

For example, here’s Almond Cow’s banana split tart.

18. Kabocha Squash Banana Bread

Naturally, I ought to include bread recipes with a banana blog post. I prefer non-traditional banana bread recipes that aren’t as obvious.

Here are additional vegan cupcake ideas.

20. Air Fryer Banana Chips

My parents got me an air fryer one Christmas, and I am horrible at making food in it. Maybe the cliché saying that practice makes perfect is a thing.

Either way, I have a long way to go before making these air fryer banana chips right from Air Fryer Eats.

21. Nice Cream

If you’re familiar with food trends, you should know that nice cream is synonymous with banana ice cream. If not, make this nice cream recipe with the help of Plant-Based on a Budget.

I know art is subjective, but I have a hard time believing smoothies are art. What’s the point of spending eons putting toppings on your smoothie right before eating it? Here’s a banana almond butter smoothie from Purely Kaylie.

If you are a smoothie fanatic, these vegan smoothies should do the trick.

25. Peanut Butter Banana Blondies

29. Banana Waffles

If you liked the sounds of banana pancakes from earlier, you might enjoy some banana waffles. Thank you, Loving It Vegan, for having our back.

30. Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

The family dog, Rusty, is too finicky to eat dog treats, probably due to being a collie. If your dog isn’t as picky, make these peanut butter banana dog treats from The Jewish Vegan.

No matter how much you like bananas, there are many ways you can avoid throwing out old bananas, from generic banana bread to banana peel bacon. If you like recipes dedicated to your favorite fruits, have dishes with apples, blackberries, raspberries, and grapefruit. Have food flavored with rhubarb, corn, carrots, and peas if you prefer vegetables.
