This is the easiest and best Homemade Banana Jam recipe that’s sweet, creamy, and delicious on toast or for dessert. A low food-waste recipe that tastes like banana bread in a jar! 6 ingredients and 15 minutes is all you need to make this easy, delicious jam.
Banana jam is a delicious banana-flavored spread that tastes like banana bread in a jar. It’s incredibly easy to make, and a great way to avoid food waste. It stays fresh in the fridge for a while and is a great alternative to banana bread if you need to use up overripe bananas.
Of course, we have nothing against banana bread around here, just check out my recipe for the Best Healthy Banana Bread or Cozy Banana Bread Oatmeal for evidence.

Who doesn’t love an easy, homemade jam? Especially when it’s made with just a few ingredients you already have on hand and none of the extensive canning process that you might be thinking of.
Enter, my Vegan Banana Jam! Using fresh bananas (that are super ripe!), sugar, lemon juice, vanilla extract, salt, and water, this banana jam recipe whips up in no time and is the perfect accompaniment to bread everywhere. And oatmeal, ice cream, pancakes, muffins, etc etc.
All it takes is 15 minutes- Let’s get jamming!
The great part bout this recipe is how easy it is to make. Simply add all of the ingredients to a pan and cook them down until you have a soft, uniform texture. You can use a potato masher to speed up the process of breaking down the banana, or leave it a little chunky if you prefer more texture in your jam. Bananas naturally contain pectin, which helps thicken things up.
Here’s what you need to make the best vegan jam with bananas:
The fun part of this recipe is finding your favorite way to enjoy your jam! You can use this creamy homemade jam anywhere you’d use regular jam. It pairs really nicely with nut butter, berries, chocolate, and oats. Spoon a little on top of your favorite vegan vanilla ice cream, or make a peanut butter and banana jam sandwich!
Enjoy it for breakfast with Matcha Vanilla Bean Oatmeal, or for dessert over Korean Sweet Cinnamon Pancakes.
I love to dollop it on top of hot Vegan Banana Oat Pancakes. It’s also tasty on top of Healthy Gingerbread Oatmeal or smeared over Blueberry Breakfast Muffins.
Bananas are high in potassium and calcium, and rich in other nutrients.
It’s so simple! All you need is overripe bananas, lemon juice, sugar, water, vanilla extract, and salt!
