How To Make Eggless Banana Muffins
It can be intimidating to bake without eggs if you’re not vegan and used to finding these alternatives.
But don’t worry, egg-free muffins are super easy to make. You don’t even need an egg replacer or any fancy ingredients.
All you need to bake delicious moist, egg-free banana muffins are simple, wholesome ingredients that you probably have at home right now.
- Ripe Bananas – The darker, the better. Overripe bananas are the best because you will need less sugar. Black spotted bananas are naturally high in natural sugar from fructose, and therefore, it’s a great way to avoid sugar in muffin recipes.
- Coconut Sugar, brown sugar, white sugar, or refined sugar-free cane sugar. Any granulated sweetener works, but feel free to also skip the sugar if your bananas are black. The recipe works with no added sugar.
- Avocado Oil – This is my favorite oil to bake with. It has healthy fats and makes fluffy and moist muffin crumbs. Feel free to use any other oil you prefer.
- Milk of Choice – I like almond milk or soy milk but use your favorite plant-based milk alternative.
- Baking Powder
- Baking Soda
- Vanilla Extract
- All-Purpose Flour
Step 1: Mashing Bananas
First, peel and mash the bananas and measure the amount required for the recipe.
To do so, pack the mashed banana into measuring cups, sweep, and keep the needed amount.
Freeze leftovers for a pineapple banana smoothie later.
Step 2: Combining Wet Ingredients
Place the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl with avocado oil, vanilla extract, coconut sugar, and milk.
Using the paddle attachment or a silicone spoon, stir to combine evenly. Set aside.
Step 3: Combining Dry Ingredients
In another bowl, stir the dry ingredients together: flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
Pour the dry ingredients on top of the liquid ingredients and stir until all are well incorporated.
Now fold in chopped nuts and chocolate chips, or keep the banana muffin batter plain.
Step 4: Baking
Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a 12-hole muffin pan with paper cups. Spray the paper liners with an oil spray.
Place about 1/4 cup of egg-free muffin batter in each cup.
Bake the muffins on the center rack for 30 to 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the muffins comes out clean.
Let the muffins cool down for 5 minutes in the muffin pan.
Then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
These eggless banana muffins can be stored at room temperature, and if it’s not too hot in your house, they can be kept for 4 days in a cake box.
Otherwise, place them in the fridge in a sealed container. They will last for five days.
The last option is to freeze the banana muffins in zip-lock bags and keep them frozen for up to one month. Thaw them at room temperature the day before eating.
You can use this easy egg-free muffin recipe to create a range of muffin flavors.
Some of the best banana muffins flavors are listed below:
- Eggless Chocolate Chips Banana Muffins – Fold 1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips in the batter at the end.
- Blueberry Banana Muffins – Stir 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries in the prepared batter.
- Nuts – Fold 1/2 cup of dry, roasted, and chopped walnuts or pecans in
- Chocolate – try my vegan chocolate banana muffins.
If you are allergic to some of the ingredients in this recipe, you can adapt it with the following substitutions.
- Gluten-Free– I didn’t try gluten-free all-purpose flour yet, but I am pretty sure a blend that has a 1:1 ratio replacement to regular flour works. Make sure your baking powder is gluten-free.
- Nut-Free – Use plant-based nut-free milk like oat milk, soy milk, or coconut milk.
- No Added Sugar – You can make it with no sugar added by skipping the sweetener completely or using a natural sugar-free sweetener like erythritol.
- Oil-Free – I didn’t try the recipe oil-free, and I think it will come out quite dense with oil swaps like yogurt or applesauce. So I don’t recommend replacing the oil.
