Vegan Banana Bread & Cashew Cream Icing

Vegan Banana Bread & Cashew Cream Icing

This banana bread is very straightforward to make and can be adapted to suit all budgets. For a plain version just take off the cashew cream icing and the walnuts and you’ve still got a delicious golden cake. The coconut sugar adds a lovely caramel flavour but you can also use any sugar that you have available. Enjoy 🙂
