Eggless Banana Bread

I had some overripe bananas a couple of weeks ago, and had decided to make some banana bread! Unfortunately, the day that I wanted to make banana bread, it seemed that everything would go wrong. I was originally going to make it in the Instant Pot, but I didn’t have a pan big enough. Then I realized I was out of eggs and didn’t want to go back to the store. (My original recipe called for an ingredient that I had to buy separately because it didn’t get picked up in groceries.) So I experimented a little and came up with this eggless banana bread recipe!

Ingredients

  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter
  • 3/4 brown sugar, lightly packed
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Line loaf pan with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together flour, granulated sugar, salt, cinnamon, baking powder, and baking soda until combined.
  4. In a large bowl, mash the bananas with a fork.
  5. Mix the butter and brown sugar into the mashed bananas.
  6. Whisk in the dry ingredients mixture into the banana mixture.
  7. If desired, mix in nuts and/or chocolate chips (optional but highly recommended).
  8. Pour mixture into loaf pan.
  9. Bake at 350 for 40-55 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

And that’s it! I used an extra banana and some baking powder to work as my rising and binding agents as opposed to the eggs! It came out delicious!
