I am a bit of a banana bread freak, putting it nicely and mildly. I don’t know many people who don’t love banana bread. For those of you who don’t… well, I am sorry that you are missing those key taste buds, because you are missing out on something special and down right comforting.
When I was 21, I started a 14 year career in the pharmaceutical and medical equipment business. My first position in the company started off in the compounding department where I learned how to make pills, creams, ointments, etc. This portion of the business was in a separate location, nestled in a quaint building that accompanied many other health practitioners.
One day, the pharmacist and I decided to create a little snack section to feed to surrounding businesses. We ordered in candy bars, chips, soda pops, etc… but it felt too convent-store-like. So I offered to make homemade rice crispy treats and mini loaves of banana bread. They were a hit and we continually sold out. I can still smell the dreamy aroma of those tiny loaves baking away in the oven. (sighs in contentment)
When I created this recipe, I was instantly transported into my little apartment kitchen where the table was filled up with tiny banana breads. The aroma wafting out of the dehydrator instantly caused my tummy to growl something fierce. I do highly recommend enjoying these right out of the dehydrator if at all possible. Does anything beat warm banana bread? The Banana Bread Toast Sticks hold up perfectly to be enjoyed as finger food, if desired. They won’t bend and flop over. They are dry to the touch on the outside but moist on the inside. They taste amazing with a smear of vegan butter on top or dipped in maple syrup. Shoot, they taste wonderful as is. I do hope you give this recipe a try and let me know down below in the comments what you think. Many blessings, amie sue

I wanted to provide a picture of what it looked like as it was ready
to head into the dehydrator. Isn’t it amazing as to how much it
darkened once dried?! No photo trickery here.
