Eggless Whole Wheat Banana Bread Recipe / Vegan Banana Bread Recipe

I love banana cake, i have already posted a recipe here..But this is a health variation of that. It has no butter, it is made with wheat flour and it has sunflower seeds and cashewnuts in this..so this is like super food. Plus it is eggless. In my opinion, banana cake dont need eggs, because of the bananas the cake stays together and the texture will be soft. Any how i will share banana cake with eggs soon..

Check my other cake recipes too..You will love my orange cake and lemon cake too..

The recipe calls for sunflower seeds and luckily i had them on hand, i bought couple of big packets of them during my last trip to supermarket. I got them because i thought i would add them to my granola..But it is optional, you can leave it out or simply add flax seeds or whatever seed you have on hand.

So give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you..

  26. Hi Aarthi

    Your recipes are just awesome!

    I am a beginner in baking and I started baking for my two year old som who loves baked goodies.

    Is baking soda same as aapam soda?

    Even though my whole wheat cakes are tasty, they do not puff up well. What may be the reason ?

  27. @Anonymousbaking soda and appa soda are same. use good quality baking soda or baking powder

  28. Hi, I tried this and the dough rose, but suddenly it started to fold in and especially in the center the risen dough folded in. Why is that so?

  29. Hi

    I tried this and the dough started rising well while baking, but suddenly it started folding in especially in the center. Why could it be so???

  30. @Anonymousi think u have added too much rising agent

  31. @Anonymousif you open the oven door before the 3/4th of the cooking time then it may cause the cake to collapse

  32. Dear Aarthi,

    This recipe was awesome, the banana bread came out perfect. First time I made it eggless and gave it to my son during school picnic, it was a big hit :-)

  36. HI aarthi...
