This is a really flexible banana bread recipe that doesn't use any eggs. You won't find many eggless banana bread recipes, and you certainly won't find many banana bread recipes (with or without eggs) that taste THIS good! Whether allergic to eggs or not, it's a treat! To top it off, it's amazingly versatile. If you're out of something, it's easy to substitute something else. Or change it to have some variety. Almost any way you could make it, it's totally moist and totally delicious!!!
1/2 c shortening (can substitute part butter, margarine, applesauce, or yogurt)

Here's what others have said about our Egg-Free Banana Bread Recipe:
"This banana bread recipe is so YUMMY!!! I made this one as well as Emeril's 5 star rated one, and this one was my family's favorite by a long shot."
"Great recipe for those avoiding eggs and dairy but want to enjoy a tasty moist banana bread. I have made it several times since finding this recipe. I make it because of my son's allergies, but the whole family enjoys it, a lot!"
"Good stuff. I began making my usual banana bread when I remembered I had no eggs so I googled and found this. Nice for those who deal with allergies, my son cannot have cows milk so I was amazed that I found something without both milk and eggs."
"I happened to be out of eggs one day and had some perfectly overripe bananas, and found this recipe to accommodate my needs. This is the BEST banana bread recipe I have ever used. Every weekend I bring a loaf to my boyfriend's apartment (of 6 guys) and it's gone before it even cools. The bread is sweet and moist with a slight crunch on the top, which is my favorite part. YUM!"
"I needed an egg free recipe when my son had not had eggs yet. I absolutely LOVE this recipe! Now that my son is older and can have eggs, I still use this recipe over my old one because it is so much better. It always turns out so moist!"
"Finally – a great recipe where you can eat the dough with no worries!"
"So moist and yummy. I put a lot of cinnamon:) I made them in cupcake papers and used as muffins for breakfast"
"This recipe is -fantastic-, it made the best banana bread I've tasted. Highly recommended!"
"I made your banana bread recipe for my family. We've been eating dairy/egg free because of my 4yo's allergies and your recipe was a godsend! It was moist, flaky and just perfect. I topped it with cinnamon sugar and then baked it. Thank you! :]"
