Banana Muffins Recipe (Eggless and Vegan)

Eggless Banana Muffins Recipe - (Vegan option included)

Banana muffins are perfect breakfast for your family if you have sweet tooth for breakfast. These muffins are egg free as well as dairy free. I have included options to make this muffins vegan.

The texture of this muffin is very light, fluffy and moist. You won’t believe that these are eggless banana muffins. It has perfect sweetness from sugar and bananas. Always use over-ripe banana while you bake with bananas. It makes baked goodies nice flavorful and sweet.

Some people like cinnamon flavor in their banana muffins. If you are one of them then add cinnamon powder. Actually I like it but dear husband is not that much fan of cinnamon, so I skipped it.

I have halved the recipe and made 6 muffins in step by step pics, but the recipe ingredients mentioned below are for dozen regular size standard muffins.

    hi Kanan, love your recipes! very good. I am trying to eat healthier. can I replace the all purpose flour with oat flour or whole wheat flour? if so, how much of each on this recipe?

    • Kanan January 21, 2015, 10:32 am

      You can use same amount of whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour.

  • margaret December 24, 2014, 1:21 pm

    i got by using only two bananas, but the batter was pretty thick, and they turned out wonderful!

    • Kanan December 25, 2014, 10:16 am

      Nice to know that muffins came out good.

  • Katie November 5, 2014, 8:03 pm

    My oven just gave up on me,when my batter (w/o choco chips) was ready. I tried steaming these goodies and it turned out delish and soft.. too soft for my taste. Would love to repeat this recipe once my oven is repaired.

    • Kanan November 7, 2014, 1:31 pm

      Oh this recipe works for steaming.!!! Great, hope your oven gets better soon. :)

  • Radhika July 16, 2014, 5:57 am

    hi ! I am going to try two of your
    recipes tonight . hoping they turn out really good :)

    • Kanan July 16, 2014, 2:57 pm

      I am sure it will turn out good. Hope you like them.

  • yasmin July 7, 2014, 7:23 pm

    Lovely light and fluffy, I replaced the raisins and walnutscfor dates,
    was a little sweet so think next time a littld less sugar
    was soooo… delicious. Thanks

    • Kanan July 7, 2014, 7:31 pm

      Glad to hear. Of course it will be sweet because you have replaced the nuts with dates (dates are naturally sweet).

  • saranya June 21, 2014, 4:20 am

    I tried a chocolate version of this recipe, and it was so yummy and moist!!Love this recipe , will definitely keep making this..even my 2 year old loves it..thanks a lot for this awesome recipe. I used all organic ingredients.The addittions/changes I made

    • Kanan June 21, 2014, 2:49 pm

      Like the idea of making chocolate banana muffins. Happy to hear that you and your son enjoyed the muffins.

  • Kristina May 4, 2014, 11:46 pm

    I just baked these today and absolutely fell in love with this recipe, they are to die for. I have been searching for an eggless recipe and this one was perfect. I did half white and half whole wheat flour and they turned out just perfect i was a bit nervous they might turn out to dense but they didnt. I also added in some dried cranberries and omitted the chocolate and walnuts. I was actually able to get 9 muffins total and the rose up perfect in the oven. Thank you so much for this recipe

    • Kanan May 5, 2014, 1:13 am

      Very glad to know that muffins came out good. I like the addition of cranberry in it.

  • Tanisha March 8, 2014, 12:12 pm

    Hey Kanan,

    Though I have this recipe many times….just want to check if it can be made without butter n only oil? If yes, then how much oil??

    • Kanan March 8, 2014, 2:26 pm

      yes Tanisha, you can replace the butter with same amount of oil.

  • Hollie February 16, 2014, 9:44 am

    I made these today and was pleasantly surprised how they turned out. Very nice, though they didn’t really rise much. The texture is a bit like chewing paper, but the flavor is great! Will make these again for sure.

    • Kanan February 16, 2014, 2:04 pm

      Nice to know that you like flavors.

  • Parimala February 1, 2014, 11:38 pm

    Hi how many cups do the bananas used in this recipe translate to?
    I usually mess up recipes with bananas so want to make sure

    • Kanan December 22, 2013, 1:09 am

      in this recipe, about 1 3/4 cups.

  • Tanisha November 29, 2013, 3:01 pm

    Hi again Kanan,

    I m back :)
    I tried two recipes of urs…..Banana muffins n chocolate cupcakes. Both turned out great taste wise, the way they rose…perfect!!! I m facing one common problem in both….Both turned out to be too dense or dry. Both were kind of sticking back into my mouth. Can u plz tell me what can I do abt it. The taste is so wonderful that i dont wanna try any other recipe rather do something abt these. Plz help!!!!

    • Kanan November 29, 2013, 6:30 pm

      1) If your baked goods are dry that means they are over baked. everybody’s oven are little different, so always check few minutes before mentioned time. by doing so, you might stop them over baking.
      2) If you eat any muffins or bread or cake warm then there are chances that they stick to top of your mouth little. to avoid that you need to let it cool completely before you eat.

      • Tanisha November 30, 2013, 2:17 am

        Thanks Kanan. I ll check the temperature this time when I bake. Muffins were not warm when we ate n chocolate cupcakes were kept out of fridge for lil while before we ate but felt quiet dry. So may b they got over baked.
        Thanks :)

  • neha November 24, 2013, 2:00 pm

    can we skip brown sugar?

    • Kanan November 25, 2013, 1:02 am

      Yes. You can use regular sugar in place of brown sugar.

  • VJ October 25, 2013, 2:50 am

  • Sandra October 14, 2013, 1:17 pm

    I loved this. I added a piece of marshmallow at the centre of each muffin batter and the results were fabulous! I also added nutmeg powder, which was gave my muffins a nice festive touch too.

    • Kanan October 14, 2013, 1:40 pm

      I like your idea of adding nutmeg powder. Glad to hear that muffins came out good.

  • Andrea October 3, 2013, 2:41 pm

    can we use white powder sugar instead of brown sugar….
    The receipe is really good …going to try it..

    • Kanan November 10, 2012, 12:27 am

      Yes you can use regular sugar. Do not use powdered sugar (confectioners’ sugar or icing sugar).

  • Kanan Patel September 26, 2012, 9:30 pm

    Thank you so much for trying out these muffins. I am glad that you liked it, Photos are looking very good.

  • riti September 26, 2012, 3:15 pm

    When ever i bake it it is flat from the upper portion not round like u rs .otherwise the taste is awsun.do tell whats the reason

    • Kanan Patel September 26, 2012, 9:19 pm

      Muffins come out flat or do not rise properly – there are three reasons
      1) if you over mix the batter. mix it till all ingredients get moisten.
      2) if oven temperature is too low.
      3) if you did all steps perfect. but if you fill muffin pan very less, it will be flat. Fill muffin pan upto 3/4 full.

      if your muffins are flat because of 3rd reason then it means that muffins cooked perfect and so tastes perfect. its all about size, shape and look.

  • Amelia July 25, 2012, 2:11 pm

    the banana muffins are looking good. in fact when i have ripe bananas i just add them to my bakes or sweet breads. they change the flavor & taste so beautifully of the baked goodies.
