Try Sarah’s Gluten Free Vegan Banana Cranberry Bread recipe! It’s one of our favorites.

Cranberries always remind me of the holidays. This tasty treat is sure to put you in a festive mood!

All of the holiday baking has come to an end. Sad. Don’t worry, baking is what I do so there will still be many recipes coming your way! I made this banana cranberry bread with the leftover cranberries I had in the freezer. I always stock up on cranberries this time of year so that I can enjoy them year round. Keep them on hand to add to smoothies, breads and muffins. What’s your favorite way to enjoy fresh cranberries?

This simple banana bread is my go-to recipe. There really are no excuses when it comes to making banana bread from scratch. It’s so easy and so quick. The longest part is the baking time and cooling time. Oh, the agony of waiting for warm banana bread to cool! I usually don’t wait and cut off a small slice when it’s piping hot. Mmmmmm. With those little tart cranberries, this banana bread is quite the morning treat.

Serve it with Dairy Free Mocha Coffee. It’s the perfect way to start your day!

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen cranberries

  • 1/3 cup sunflower seed or canola oil
  • 1/4 cup So Delicious unsweetened coconut milk
  • 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pure GF vanilla extract


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Prepare 9×5-inch loaf pan by spraying with cooking spray or lining with parchment paper. Coat cranberries with 2 tablespoons flour. Set aside. In large mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In separate bowl, mix together mashed bananas, brown sugar, oil, coconut milk, maple syrup and vanilla. Add to flour mixture and blend well. Fold in flour-coated cranberries, be sure to add all the flour and stir gently to combine.
