I love to bake bread and make many different kinds and it’s one thing everyone in my house loves.  We also love bananas, breakfast, brunch, and muffins so it’s a win-win!

When we have some left over bananas at the end of the week, I always make this eggless banana bread.  I can just throw it in the freezer if we aren’t ready to eat it. It’s got a great banana flavor.

The Easy Eggless Banana Bread Recipe

If you’re new to my site, then let me tell you about myself.  I’ve been allergic to eggs my whole, since I was 6 months old (when my mom found out by giving me scrabbled eggs).

I grew up on eating Dairy Queen ice cream and Chips Ahoy cookies for my sweet treats.  I also loved and still love peanut M&M’s!

Now that I’m older and more experienced in the kitchen, I started experimenting and making more and more recipes that I can eat.  I started adapting my baked goods recipes that had eggs in then and then creating my own.

I’ve tried all kinds of egg substitutes and bought my fair share weird ingredients from specialty stores that I’ve only used once, then it just sits in the back of my cabinet.  

After doing that for years, I just realized it’s just easier to use normal ingredients that I usually have in my cabinet.  Every once in a while I’ll do something special, but I typically stay away from those expensive ingredients that I’ll never use again. All my recipes have your the average persons pantry staples, no crazy egg replacer, just basic ingredients.

My brother is allergic to milk and eggs so I try to do some recipes that don’t include milk either so I decided to try banana bread without eggs OR milk.

Can I freeze egg free banana bread?

Remember, you can freeze this bread if you aren’t ready to eat it.  You’re able to freeze the loaf whole or slice it up before hand.  Just make sure to wrap it up in plastic wrap and then place it in a baggie to keep it from getting freezer burnt.

Do I have to use overripe bananas to make banana bread?

No, you don’t have to use overripe bananas to make bread, but the softer the better. People always say to use them because no one wants to eat a brown banana, but they’re great for baking, so it won’t go to waste. If you are craving banana bread but only have perfectly ripped bananas, they are perfectly fine to use, but I normally avoid using yellow bananas.

Can I use frozen bananas?

You can freeze bananas so you can use them later and YES, you can use them in this bread. When you freeze bananas, make sure to peel them first. You can put them in an airtight container or baggie and pull them out when you’re ready to use them. Frozen bananas are perfect for smoothies too. Just pull out what you need and let them thaw out at room temperature before using. It should only take a couple of hours

Bananas are good for you!

Bananas are so good for you and make smoothies all the time.  This one is our favorite.  We have them for breakfast, snacks, and dessert.  Here’s the blender that I have and LOVE!

Bananas are great for lowering blood pressure and decreasing heart disease.  They can reduce the risk of cancer and asthma.

Kitchen Tools to made this eggless banana bread recipe

Handheld Electric Mixer– You can use a stand mixer for this recipe, but you don’t have to get it out if you don’t want to. A simple hand mixer will do fine. I actually use my hand mixer way more than my stand mixer. It’s just easier to get out and clean. Anyway, the hand mixer I linked to above is one I got for a wedding gift over twenty years ago and it’s still going strong and I bake A LOT! I definitely recommend it.

Large bowl– I LOVE stainless steel bowls. They are great in the kitchen for all kinds of cooking and baking. They hold up well and don’t need to replace often. A mixing bowl is used almost everyday in my house.

Loaf Pan– I prefer to use a glass loaf pan versus a metal pan. I love the one linked here.

Ingredients to make easy vegan banana bread recipe

  • Mashed Bananas– Make sure to use all your overripe bananas for this!
  • All purpose flour– I’ve never made this with whole wheat flour so if go this route do so with caution.
  • White Sugar
  • Baking soda
  • Vegetable oil
  • Lemon juice

Optional- You can add in some chocolate chips too!!

How to make the best eggless banana bread recipe

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350F and spray nonstick spray into your loaf pan. Mash your bananas, lemon juice and vegetable oil in a large bowl. Next, add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients- flour, sugar and baking soda.

Step 2

Pour your banana bread batter into your prepared loaf pan. Place your loaf pan on a baking sheet before putting it in the oven. I’ve realized that these pans vary slightly and sometimes the batter can run over when cooking. It’s a safety measure to keep your oven clean, just in case.

Bake for 1 hour in your preheated oven and test with a toothpick.  If it comes out clean, then it’s done.

Step 3

Let your banana bread cool before removing it from your loaf pan. I like to place it on a wire rack. Once cool, then you’ll want to slice it into individual slices with a bread knife.

No Egg Banana Bread Recipe Tip #1

Don’t forget to test the center of the bread with a toothpick!  There are so many times I’ve pulled bread out of the oven, thinking it was done, but it wasn’t cooked all the way through.

If you don’t have a toothpick, you can use a butter knife.  Make sure you test in the middle, not on the edge.

If you feel it’s keeping brown and it’s not done on the inside, then you can cover with aluminum foil while it finishes baking.

Tip 2

Make sure to grease your pan well with a nonstick spray. Get in the corners so the batter won’t stick. Some people like to use parchment paper to line their pan for easy removal.

This bread is delicious! My son is allergic to eggs. When baking without eggs, it can be difficult to get the right texture and taste. This recipe turned out perfectly and my family loves it!!!

Thanks👍 Not an allergic myself, just didn’t have any eggs so googled and found this site.

I added the zest of 1 lemon, and 2-3 tablespoons of poppy seeds. Turned out great and the poppy seeds gave it a bit of crunch.

Oh wow these are amazing! I substituted glutenfree flour for the flour added Walnuts and vegan chocolate chips and added ground flax and hemp hearts and made them into muffins! Amazing! Thank you for this great recipe! I tried it because my sister made it for me for Christmas and it was something I could eat because it was eggfree!
