Eggless banana bread recipe – A healthy, soft and moist quick bread that is loaded with the flavors of banana baked using whole wheat flour and oats flour with step by step photos.
This is my go to eggless banana bread right from the beginning I started to bake. Earlier my younger one would not eat them as he hates bananas but right now I think his tastes have evolved and he loves it so much.
One more reason why I should bake this banana bread often. It’s as easy as counting numbers and makes a fantastic breakfast or snack for the kids that’s just easy to pack for school.
In my opinion, banana bread tastes awesome as it rests for some time. It tastes amazing the next day or on the second day. Another reason to bake 2 loaves and let one loaf age to enjoy later. That’s why this is a keeper recipe.
Usually I make only one loaf earlier when I baked using my microwave convection oven. 2 months ago I bought an OTG that was big enough to house 2 loaf pans, this time I decided to bake 2 loaves at the same time.
This recipe is updated with the flour ratios, though the other ingredients and the method are same that I posted earlier.
This time I used 1 cup each of whole wheat flour and quick cooking oats flour to bake this eggless banana bread and it turned out just perfect instead of ending up with dense slices as I feared earlier.
If you want to make only loaf, halve the recipe exactly and it will give you perfect result. I have used melted butter in this recipe. You can also use any vegetable oil in place of butter but I personally loved the bread’s texture when I use butter.
