Banana Muffins {Egg-free, Dairy-free}

Do you have overripe bananas?  This is a good thing at my house because then they often turn into delicious banana muffins! 

You definitely won't miss the egg in these moist, delicious muffins.  These muffins can also be made dairy-free.  Enjoy!

If you like this recipe, you must try Banana Cake (EF, DF) you may also like Banana Nut Bread (EF, DF).

Banana Muffins
1 ½ c flour
¾ c sugar
1 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
½ t salt
¼ c vegetable oil
¼ c milk or non-dairy milk
3 medium mashed bananas
1 t vanilla extract

Using a stand mixer or electric hand mixer, blend the bananas until smooth.  Add oil, milk and vanilla mixing until combined.  Slowing add in the dry ingredients, while mixing the batter.  Spoon batter evenly into 12 greased muffin tins.  Bake at 375o for 16-20 minutes.  Cool in muffin tins.  Makes 12 muffins

  1. These were were mouth watering delicious. There was no compromise on taste by not using an egg. The consistency was just the way a banana muffin should be - moist and tasty. My son is anaphlactic to eggs and nuts so this is why I tried them put I had 3 ripe bananas and thought why not try it. He is only 6 and has eaten 3 since they came out of the oven at 3:00 pm and it is now 7 p.m. Thank you so much for this awesome recipe.

  2. These are amazing! I made them for my son (and the rest of the family) this morning, his without nuts, ours with, and they were wonderful. They came out nice and fluffy and you would never guess eggs were missing.

  3. This week, I helped my friend make these muffins for the first time. Her son is allergic to dairy, soy, nuts, eggs and a few other things. I forgot that my vegetable oil blend had soy in. So, we had to use olive oil, seeing that was the only thing I had on hand that he wasn't allergic to. We used rice milk for a non-dairy, non-soy milk option. The muffins still turned out good. I thought the olive oil would give it a weird taste and would have preferred canola oil but I guess there is enough banana and sugar that you really can't go wrong with these!! Yay!

  4. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Easiest allergy-friendly muffin recipe yet! We loved them...tasted like mini banana breads because the tops turned brown and delicious. (Our dairy-free milk choice was plain almond milk.)

  7. Loved making mini-muffins for my 17 month-old allergic to dairy, eggs, nuts and soy. Master 3 also loves to help with the mixing - so easy it's hard to go wrong!
    I've added dairy-free cooking chocolate chips this time - yum!
    I use oat milk.

  11. Curious, do I need to adjust anything if I wanted to add blueberries. I'm new to baking so I'm not quite sure.

    Also what if I wanted to substitute the sugar for honey? My nephew is allergic to dairy and eggs so I was hoping to make him some treats but low in sugar.

    1. Are you wanting to add blueberries in place of the banana? I have tried this with blended blueberries in place of the mashed banana and didn't care for it. If you just want to add some blueberries along with the mashed banana, that would probably work. If you plan to mix them in the batter, dust the blueberries with flour first. It will keep them from all sinking to the bottom. I have not tried replacing the sugar in this recipe with honey. I have tried it with my cornbread and it worked just fine. This recipe has proven to be pretty resilient. Give it a try and let me know if it works for you!

  13. I find the taste of baking powder in recipes to be a little overwhelming, but I can't (shouldn't, rather) eat eggs. I usually just add baking soda to substitute for baking powder which adds all the "rising" necessary for baked goods like this!

    1. How much baking soda do you use in place of the baking powder for this recipe? Did it work for you? Other readers my be interested to know. Thanks!

  16. All I can say is... God bless you for this recipe. With my son's multiple food allergies, I searched high and low for cakes to make for his birthday in 2 weeks. All of them tasted like sawdust or looked like science experiments. Till I found this! I used a garbanzo bean flour mix and omitted the baking powder because I didn't have any, yet it came out beautifully! Both in looks and taste. Thank you so very much!!

    1. Awe, thanks! So happy to hear it. I just bought some bananas today. I am sure the end of the bunch will turn into this muffins. You omitted the baking powder and they still worked okay?! That is unexpected. I really think this recipe is pretty resilient!

  19. I made these for my daughter's kindergarten class (one of the students has an egg allergy). The teacher raved about them. She said every child gobbled them up and a few wanted more. My daughter said they were still talking about them to her at recess. Awesome! Thanks for the recipe and the Snack Day Win!

    Could I use gluten free flour in place of all purpose flour?

    1. Laineylin - I accidently deleted your comment. You said that they sunk in the middle... These always cook up great for me. Did you use one teaspoon of baking powder AND one teaspoon of baking soda? I think that is the only thing that may be off.

  27. Really great recipe! They're delicious. Had 5 bananas and they were still perfect. Very easy to make so my 12 year old can make them herself :) Any way I could turn the recipe into nut free carrot muffins?

    1. I am so glad you liked them. Mashed/shredded carrots have a very different consistency than mashed bananas. So, I think other adjustments would have to be made as well. I have not tried carrot muffins. But they sound good!

  28. I don't usually comment on recipes, even though I rely SO highly on the comments/reviews before I make one (for shame, I know). However, I had to comment and say this was a WONDERFUL egg/dairy free recipe. Cooking/baking vegan isn't new to me, but we've just incorporated gluten-free on top of that, due to one of our children's allergies. I made this recipe with the ingredients as called for, except for substituting the flour for Betty Crocker's Gluten Free Rice Flour Blend. Even without eggs, dairy milk or even "regular" flour, the muffins were FANTASTIC! My 10 year old son - the pickiest of all who usually scoffs at anything different - said they were "THE best!" Thanks for this great recipe!

  29. We are making them today for the second time in 2 days. We are all allergic to eggs and mom is lactose intolerant. I am an older sister of two and a younger of one. I am usually the one that does a lot of the cooking nowadays. But I don't mind. I've been working in the kitchen ever since I can remember. It was sooooooo much fun to make that recipe and my mom can't get over how good they tasted! My dad loved them too. I'm always looking for more recipes that he can eat. My brother is allergic to corn and your recipe did not have any corn products. That is a definite thumbs up. I love the muffins and the recipe and the cook time. I did make one little alteration to the recipe however. I couldn't find the vanilla extract and so I substituted maple syrup. It was wonderful. I will be making these muffins alot. ����

  30. I have made these so many times and they are absolutely delicious! My step daughter has a ton of food allergies (eggs, peanuts, oats, dairy to name a few) so when I found this recipe I was ecstatic. I am dairy and gluten intolerant as well. I have made these just dairy free and I've even made them dairy and gluten free (using rice flour). I tried coconut flour once, I'm sure I did something wrong, the flour just soaked it up like instant potatoes all flaky. The gluten free flour I would say makes it a little drier but still tasted great. I also freeze my bananas prior to using them. I defrost in a bowl and let them slip out of the peel. I don't discard the extra liquid and I think that's what helps keep it moist. I also use Enjoy Life mini morsels to add some extra sweetness. Thanks for the awesome recipe!
