I’ve been a non-dairy girl for about 5 years (after the birth of my youngest). Here’s another Dana’s Bread recipe gone non-dairy, and vegan … Vegan Chic – Oatmeal Banana Chocolate Chip Cake!! This recipe has been tweaked, rigorously tested, and enthusiastically embraced by my family (even the carnivores and dairy drinkers among Team Bueno). I still haven’t told my teenager the cake is vegan. She’s been enjoying it as a quick breakfast before school. If you tell her I’m sure she won’t be surprised though — she’d roll her eyes and say, “Yep, that’s my mom!” —danabueno

Absolutely loved this recipe. The BB was so moist! Mine did dry up a bit by Day 2 and 3 but I was a little low on coconut so that may have been why. Thank you!
