This recipe is one of my favorites, and I have always baked banana nut bread with eggs. Try my other eggless bakes.

SO WHY VEGAN? Vegan Banana Nut Bread

It’s because my kid is intolerant to eggs and that is why I try to bake without eggs. Believe me; this recipe turns excellent without eggs. It retains the texture and tastes terrific. That slice below – looks great, isn’t it? 

From now on, this Vegan Banana Nut Bread is my go-to recipe for nutty bread. It’s

  • condensed,
  • moist,
  • dense and
  • packed with banana-walnut flavor.

Ripe bananas are the secret. 

Yes, ripe bananas – the ones that have brown flecks on the skin (though mine were not that brown). Why brown spotted bananas?

Because the starch in the bananas have converted into sugar and that’s the reason ripe bananas taste sweet and are ideal for baking. 

NOW ONTO THE RECIPE! Vegan Banana Nut Bread

This one-bowl Vegan Banana Nut Bread is baked without butter, eggs, and dairy. Yes, you heard me right – no eggs, butter or dairy. Still, it produces a moist and tender crumb.

    This looks incredibly moist! I must try this recipe. I bet my kid would like this bread. He loves Banana Bread.

  2. Claire | The Simple, Sweet Life says:

    I’ve never tried a vegan, egg-friend bread recipe before, but given that my mother-in-law is also intolerant to eggs, I’ll definitely have to try it. I bet she’d love it! 🙂

  3. Karyl Henry says:

    I’m so picky when it comes to bananas, and won’t eat them plain once they turn even slightly brown 🙂 But inevitably my bananas get too brown, so I’m going to save this recipe for the next time that happens. This bread looks fabulous, and there’s nothing like the smell of warm bread right out of the oven

  4. Anna says:

    What a beautiful recipe! We love banana bread in our house, and make it at least once a week! Such great way to use overripe bananas!

  5. Jessica (Swanky Recipes) says:

    I made zucchini muffins a few weeks ago with the same spices as banana bread. This week I bought a bunch of bananas and they are just about ripe. Was totally going to make banana bread and this one looks delish!

  6. Amanda M Mason says:

    Your step-by-step pictures are so helpful!! This looks amazing! Slab a bit of butter on this and it will make for the perfect breakfast!

  7. Amy Treasure says:

    I’m vegetarian but try and eat vegan where I can so really appreciate this recipe! I love how it has such a compact crumb, like a proper piece of banana bread. Looks really great.

    Hi Ruchi

    Thanks you for the nice receipe for banana nut bread. It came out very nicely and yummy.

  15. Raj says:

    Hello Ruchi,
    Happy new year!
    I like your banana nut bread recipe but I need to know if this is low carb, because I’m watching my intake of sugar.

    • Ruchi says:

      Thanks for the wishes and Happy New year to you too!
      This recipe has approximately 242 carbs.
      But again that’s a rough estimate.

  16. ashley says:

    What brand of sugar, what kind of oil did you use?

    • Ruchi says:

      Any brand of sugar and oil will work just fine with this recipe.
      I have used CH superfine sugar and Crisco canola oil for this recipe.

  17. maria says:

  18. Meena says:

    Can I use Whole wheat flour?

  19. Sonal says:

    Absolutely loved the vegan version Ruchi di!!
    Loved the bright crisp pictures!

  20. Puja Bansal says:

    Can we use regular buttermilk also. if yes in what quantity

  21. Aparna says:

    Amazing. Can I use regular buttermilk and vinegar? Almond milk is hard to come by and also awfully expensive

    • Ruchi says:

      Thanks Aparna!
      Yes, you can use regular buttermilk. Buttermilk is milk + vinegar.
      Please use the same measurements – substitutes are mentioned in the method section (step 7).
