Step-by-step instructions for the recipe 

In this section, we will discuss how to prepare the ingredients and mix them. it is essential to know the nitty-gritty of the process because while baking one must always be vigilant of the tiniest of things that can disrupt the whole process. It is especially true for the preparation of ingredients in eggless banana bread recipes. 

1. Preparing the banana 

You can typically use either 2 large bananas or four medium-sized bananas. Make sure that they are ripe or overripe and mix them into a bowl.

Use a knife to cut the bananas into small pieces and then you can use a fork or a masher to make a banana puree.  

2. Incorporating wet ingredients 

Now take the 1/2-1/3 cup of sugar and add it to the banana, proceed to use a masher and mix it in the banana puree.

You can also use a blender. 1/2 cup of oil should be added to the banana mixture. 

3. Combining the ingredients together 

Now mix coconut oil 1/2 cup or any other wet ingredient for your preference, the substitutions are given below.

keep in mind that using coconut oil can solidify the texture of banana bread and make it dense when you store it in the refrigerator. 

4. Making the mixture even 

This is important as we do not want any lumps in the mixture, so make sure to stir it for a good two to three minutes. 

You can use a wired whisk or a spatula so that the oil can be mixed evenly with a spatula in the banana puree. 

5. Adding flavors to your eggless banana bread 

You can stir these flavors into your oil and banana puree, note that nutmeg powder and cinnamon are optional. 

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or 1/2 half teaspoon vanilla powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon or 2-3 pinches of grated nutmegs. 

Now stir this mixture well combining all the previous ingredients. 

6. Making the eggless banana bread batter

Take a new bowl and put one and a half cups of flour or 180 grams if you are measuring, put half a teaspoon of baking soda into it and add a pinch of salt. 

Now pour the dry contents directly above the wet mixture and make sure to run it evenly all over it. 

7. Mixing the wet and dry ingredients 

This is a vital step in the whole process, we advise that you do not mix but rather fold the dry ingredients into the wet ones using a spatula and do it slowly and gently. 

This step takes precedence because we need the batter combined evenly but we also need to avoid any stirring to avoid the deflation of the batter.

This could make everything go awry. So take care when you fold the mixture into one another. The folded batter will have a thick consistency, it will not be flat but it will be fully combined. 

8. Baking eggless banana bread 

You can preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius or 350 degrees Fahrenheit for a span of twenty minutes.

Take a lined loaf pan or a greased sheet with dimensions 8*4*2.5 inches or you can also use a round cake pan. Bake for about thirty to forty minutes. It’s important to keep an eye out so as not to burn our loaf. 

Wear baking gloves or kitchen cloth and take the freshly baked eggless banana bread out of the oven and put it on the wired rack to cool down. 

Your delicious eggless banana bread is ready to be served!
