Eggless banana bread recipe video – Delicious & easy banana bread that is eggless and vegan too. I do not prefer eggless bakes since many of them do not yield the same texture as the ones with eggs. But each time I share a baking recipe with eggs, I do get lot of requests for eggless version too. Since the eggless ones need a a lot of trials and experimentation I do not get to share them often here.
I had tried many eggless and vegan banana bread recipes from many websites, and finally loved this one from Madhu’s blog. I had tried this almost an year ago and made it a few times since then during festivals since that is the only time I bake without eggs.
I made this during Diwali since I had too many over ripe bananas and preferred to go eggless.
