As a testament…

this has been a top post here at Milk Allergy Mom for over a decade!

Thanks 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 in the comments below. 

This recipe is actually pretty nostalgic for me, too.

Our big boys have gobbled it up since they were toddlers.

And now as pre-teens,

they still love it as breakfast or a filling snack.

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 special treat.

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. 


“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

The Best Vegan Banana Bread


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 some of you may be a little intimidated by flax eggs and boxed egg replacer. 

Applesauce is the easiest

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

Although this recipe stands alone as a star…

you can also spice this banana bread up by adding:

You can always leave it as is, too.

We do most of the time!

Seriously, it is 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, lol. 

Because this recipe is too easy to mess up.

Pumpkin Bread

Apple Bread

If you want banana bread faster,

consider putting the batter into muffin tins, instead.

This means you can enjoy them in half the time.

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

This recipe is so good, we had to find a way to enjoy it all year long.

This muffin pan (affiliate) is my absolute favorite. 

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

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

Here is our muffin version of this banana bread recipe
