Vegan Sweet Potato Bread


A southern favorite made with sweet potatoes, banana, cinnamon, and pecans, this comforting bread recipe has been modified for a vegan diet.


  • 1 cup chopped sweet potato
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 over-ripe banana
  • 1 3/4 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


  1. Bring water to a boil in a large pot. Add sweet potatoes and cook until tender, 20 to 30 minutes; drain. Place sweet potatoes in a bowl and mash with a potato masher until smooth.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
  3. Stir sugar and oil together in a bowl until well mixed; beat in banana. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and baking powder in a bowl. Alternate stirring the flour mixture and 1/3 cup water into the sugar mixture until combined. Mix in sweet potatoes and pecans; stir until batter is smooth. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until top is golden brown, about 1 hour.
