    • Hi Donna, I have not tried this bread without using eggs. I usually use a flax or chia egg as my replacement, I would just make sure a strong “gel” is formed before incorporating it into the recipe. If you try it, let me know how it turns out!

  • Is there a substitute for the almond meal or a way to limit the almond meal? I have folks with intolerances above 15 almonds

    • Hi Michelle! I would look for a gluten free banana bread recipe made from coconut flour or a gluten flour blend without almond flour. Then you can add cranberries and pecans. Switching the flour in my recipe will most likely alter the amount of the other ingredients listed, and I haven’t tried it! Sorry about that. You’ve inspired me to make a “non almond flour” banana bread now 😉
