Ingredients

  • Ripe Bananas: For making this eggless whole wheat banana bread, you will need ripe bananas. Overripe or brown bananas work best in this recipe, as they give the best banana flavor.

  • Flour: To create the base of this banana bread, I have used whole wheat flour to make it healthier. However, you can also use all-purpose flour. Also, as a gluten-free alternative, you can use gluten-free all-purpose flour.

  • Butter: To add moisture, I have used salted butter at room temperature. But you can also use unsalted butter. Or use neutral oil if you want to make it vegan. The oils you can use in this banana bread are canola or melted coconut oil.

  • Sweetener: To add depth of sweetness and caramelized flavors, I have used a combination of brown and granulated sugar. You can use dark brown sugar, muscovado sugar. And you can also use just one type of sugar of your choice.

Jaggery or palm sugar can also be used as a healthier substitute.

  • Milk: Regular dairy milk or unsweetened almond milk for a vegan option.

  • Chocolate Chips: They increase the richness of this banana bread. I have added them to the batter and used them as a topping as well. I used dark chocolate chips here; you can also use milk chocolate chips or chunks here.

You can also use real chocolate to get gooey, chocolatey centers.

  • Leavening Agents: I have used baking powder and baking soda in this recipe to give the loaf a desired rise.

  • Cinnamon: A touch of ground cinnamon adds an aromatic touch and makes it irresistibly fragrant.

Variations

Hazelnut Banana Bread:

Love hazelnuts in a loaf? Then you can make hazelnut banana bread by adding some roasted and roughly chopped hazelnuts to the batter. Also, sprinkle batter with some more hazelnuts right before baking.

Walnut Banana Bread:

Walnuts taste great in banana bread. If you like the combination of chocolate and walnuts, then you can try walnut banana bread by adding chopped walnuts to the batter.

Seed Banana Bread:

You can add your favorite seeds to this banana bread. The seeds that taste great in banana bread are chia seeds, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, or sunflower seeds.

Coconut Banana Bread: 

Coconut and bananas pair so well together. To make Coconut Banana Bread, replace milk with coconut milk. You can also add 1-2 tablespoons of shredded coconut to the batter.

Chocolate Banana Bread:

Love chocolate desserts? Then you can make chocolate banana bread by adding cocoa powder to the batter.

Gingerbread Banana Bread:

Want to make it festive for the holiday season? Then add 1 tablespoon of gingerbread spice to the batter.

Peanut Butter Banana Bread:

Enjoy peanut butter banana brownies? Then you would also love peanut butter banana bread. To make this version of bread, simply add a few dollops of peanut butter on the top of the batter and swirl it before baking.

Professional Tips & Tricks to Make the Best Eggless Banana Bread

  1. Oil or Butter: I have used butter in this recipe, but you can also use oil. 

  2. Melting butter: I didn’t melt butter; instead, I chose to blend the ingredients together. To me, this bread comes out more moist this way. But you can also melt butter if you are not comfortable using them without melting.

  3. Bananas: When making banana bread, make sure that the bananas you are using are ripe. Overripe bananas are the best for this recipe, as they add more sweetness and flavor.

  4. Chocolate Chips: I have used dark unsweetened chocolate chips to give this bread a subtle chocolatey note without compromising the classic banana taste. You can also use sweetened chocolate chips here. Dark or milk both taste great here. You can also replace chocolate chips with chocolate chunks or chopped dark/milk chocolate.

  5. Checking Doneness: To check the doneness, insert a toothpick, and if it comes out clean, then your banana bread is ready. If not, then bake for some more time. To avoid any confusion with melted chocolate, you can do this test at multiple spots.

  6. Leavening Agents: For the best rising results, you need to use both baking soda and baking powder.

  7. Sugar: For this banana bread, you can use any type of sugar. I like to use a combination of white granulated and brown sugar. I like to use the brown sugar here, as the molasses in brown sugar helps keep the bread moist. Feel free to use any one type of sugar here. 

  8. Avoid Overbaking: Baking time may vary, depending upon the temperature of the oven. To avoid overbaking, start checking the bread after 40 minutes. And make sure to remove it from the oven as soon as the toothpick comes out clean.

  9. Cooling Time: Make sure to let the bread cool for at least 30 minutes in the pan before demolding and slicing.

  10. Flavors: I have only added cinnamon powder here. You can try exploring new flavors. For example, you can add allspice, nutmeg, or even gingerbread spice.

  11. Nuts: Love a nutty bread? Then you can add some toasted nuts for richness and added crunch. The nuts that taste great in this recipe are chopped walnuts, almonds, or hazelnuts.

  12. Sweetener: Substitute dark brown muscovado sugar with light brown sugar or granulated sugar based on personal preference.

  13. Milk: I have added regular milk here. But if you want to make vegan banana bread, then make sure you use dairy-free milk here. You can try experimenting with different kinds of milk like oats, almond, coconut, or soy.
