Eggless Banana Bread for a Toaster Oven or Instant Pot

Instructions for cooking this bread in an Instant Pot included below!

Cost: 33 cents per serving

$2.60 per loaf/cake

With only a few more weeks left in our hotel room, I’m trying to get through as many of my remaining ingredients as I can. I have a lot of pantry type items left and I hate wasting food. I also have two lovely spotty brown bananas, so in an effort to use up some ingredients this recipe was born. It doesn’t contain any animal products because I was out of one important staple, eggs. However, thanks to the almonds in it every derving has 5 grams of protein!

Since I don’t have loaf pans here in my room I used my 7″ cheesecake pan.  My finished product was incredibly moist, saturated-fat free, and full of protien and fiber from the almonds, whole wheat, and oats. Enjoy!

Pour mixture into a 7′ round cake/cheesecake pan or a bread loaf pan. Cook for 20-25 minutes in a toast over or for about 35 min. in an oven,  or until a toothpick comes out clean after being inserted into the bread.

If you’d like extra moist bread, cook your bread in an Instant Pot for 15 minutes,  and then wait 10 minutes for a natural pressure release. I cooked mine on the cake setting but if you don’t have a newer instant pot, the manual mode will work as well

*If using a toaster oven- Cook the bread for 10 minutes on bake and then 10 more on the 350 degree toasting option until completely cooked through.

Enjoy this moist and healthier version of banana bread!
