Nutley’s Banana Bread Recipe


We’re bringing back the Cooking with Mom’s Choice kitchen where we share award-winning recipes for you and your family. Award-winning author Stephanie Sorkin is here with an egg-free, nut-free recipe taken from her Mom’s Choice Award winning book “Nutley, the Nut-free Squirrel”. Nutley is a whimsical book about a squirrel that discovers he is allergic to nuts. Her book is also a fundraiser, as she donate 100% of the proceeds earned from its sale.


Nutley’s Nut-free, Egg-free Banana Bread Recipe


1/2 cup (1 stick) but (soft or slightly melted) 6 ounces Greek yogurt 1 ½ cups sugar 2 ½ cups flour 3 medium, ripe bananas 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt Directions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease the bottom only of a loaf pan.
  • In a mixer, mix butter and sugar. Add Greek yogurt, mashed bananas and vanilla. Stir to combine.
  • Add flour, baking soda and salt. Consistency will be sticky and thick.
  • Pour into a loaf pan.
  • Bake for approximately 1 hour, but start testing with a toothpick after 45 minutes.
  • Let cool for 30 minutes then carefully run a knife around the edges of the loaf pan to loosen up the bread.
  • Turn the pan over to remove bread and let cool.

This recipe can easily be made dairy-free and or gluten-free. For dairy free banana bread, replace the Greek yogurt with non-dairy sour cream and replace the butter with non-dairy (parve) margarine. To make gluten-free banana bread, simply replace the regular flour with gluten-free flour. Enjoy!

  1. Thank you for sharing this recipe. My son is an adult now, but we struggled to find dairy-free recipes for many years.

    1. It is definitely tough finding recipes that taste good and cater to food allergies. If you have any others to share, we would love to post them on our blog for others to enjoy. Feel free to shoot me an email to if you’d like to contribute!
