This no milk, no egg banana bread recipe has been a top post here at Milk Allergy Mom for over a decade.

Thank you for loving it as much as we do.

Kelly on Facebook says, 

“We make this recipe all the time and everyone (including non-allergy peeps) love it! Perfection every time!”

Awww, we love hearing that. 

Read more reviews below. 

This recipe is pretty nostalgic for me, too.

It was probably the very first recipe I came up with for my kiddo with food allergies.

As toddlers, my boys continued to gobble it up every time I made it.

And now that my kids are teenagers, I need to double this recipe and make TWO loaves each time in order to keep the family content. 

I’m here for it! 

Milk and Egg Free Banana Bread

We may just let bananas go brown around here on purpose…

and even raid Grandma’s brown banana stash just to make this delicious bread.

There’s no shame in our game.

Plus, don’t forget to check last-chance banana sales at the grocery store.

Perfect for making this popular banana bread. 

Never throw out brown bananas again. 


“This bread is amazing! Definitely going to be a staple!!” Jessica on Pinterest

“I made it twice for my vegan visitors. It was the best!” Marilyn on Pinterest

“Such a delicious and easy recipe!! My daughter has a an egg, milk, soy, and wheat allergy so we tweaked it a little. We substituted egg for applesauce as the recipe stated and used gluten free flour. Absolutely delicious!!!” Betty on Pinterest

“Delicious! A family favorite!” Leslie on Pinterest

Our dairy-free and egg-free banana bread recipe is especially nice for food allergy families…

because it doesn’t even call for milk.

No milk substitute needed.

And it requires just one egg that’s easily replaced with 3 tablespoons of applesauce.

I know flax eggs and boxed egg replacer can be a little intimidating for some.

Applesauce is definitely easiest, and it works wonderfully in this recipe.

Feel free to use one egg instead of applesauce if you can.

This recipe is also great for those who find themselves wanting to bake but not having milk and/or egg on hand.


Although this recipe stands alone as a star,

you can also spice this banana bread up by adding a few different things. 

  • dairy-free chocolate chips (affiliate)
  • your favorite nuts if not allergic
  • brown sugar sprinkled on top before baking

You can always leave it as is, too.

We do most of the time.

Seriously, it’s delicious as is.

I promise, the fam will chow it down no matter what.


Even consider making mini-loaves as gifts for new moms, new neighbors, and Christmas.

Your friends and family will love you!


This recipe is so versatile that we have also used it as the base for other quick breads.

There’s just no end to the madness.

If you want banana bread faster,

consider putting the batter into muffin tins, instead.

This means you can enjoy in half the time.

And if it’s summer, your oven won’t be on as long.

This muffin pan (affiliate) is my absolute favorite. 

It’s what I always use to make our dairy-free and egg-free banana bread muffins. 

It’s no stick and no need for wrappers when I’m just making a snack for home. 

This is the easiest muffin pan to clean, too! 

Here’s our muffin version of this banana bread recipe. 


See the banana bread recipe below.

1 cup mashed bananas (2-3 bananas)

5. Fill Pan: Spoon the mixture into your bread pan. It will be thick.

6. Bake: Bake 35-50 minutes until a wooden toothpick comes out clean from the center. Totally depends on your oven. Don’t overcook.

7. Cool: Keep the bread in the pan and cool on a wire rack.

8. STORE: Once cooled, cover the bread pan tightly with foil. The flavors will meld together better on the second day, but who can really wait that long?

Feel free to eat it hot out of the oven with dairy-free butter

Hope you enjoy this dairy and egg free banana bread as much as we do!

No milk, no egg banana bread. Yeah, baby!
