Some of the best bread recipes out there are naturally made without eggs, making it easy for those who are avoiding eggs for some reason to still have bread.
If you are looking for bread recipes without eggs, you have come to the right place – here you’ll find more than twenty recipes for everything from pita bread, to monkey bread, to banana bread.
I know there are quite a few people who are avoiding eggs for some reason or another, either from an allergy or sensitivity. But I was still surprised when I was doing some Google searching recently to find that “bread recipes without eggs” was a high search term.
I also know that there are actually quite a few breads that naturally don’t have eggs listed in the ingredient list – a good artisan bread or baguette, for instance is simply water, yeast (or sourdough), flour, and salt. But there are also other types of breads that call for egg substitutes (like flax) or no eggs at all like some quick breads, muffins, and scones.
To make it easy for those looking for bread recipes without eggs, I’m gathering 22 of the best here from AOC and around the web that should cover all the bases. You can definitely have your bread and eat it too – without eggs!
Oh, and let me know in the comments if you are avoiding eggs and the breads you like to make.
Bread Recipes Without Eggs
Quick & Tender Hamburger Buns or Breadsticks. These are so tender, you’ll never miss the eggs. Plus, they really are a quick yeast bread – they are ready in an hour, start to finish!
Easy, Soft 100% Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread. This is the recipe that freed me from buying store bought bread. It so good and so easy, it may do the same for you, too!
Make Ahead, Real Food Glazed Monkey Bread. Just because you’re avoiding eggs doesn’t mean you can’t have a soft, sweet bread treat. This monkey bread is our family’s Christmas morning tradition!
Homemade Whole Grain Pita Bread. While it may look like pita bread would take a lot of time to make (mixing, rolling, etc.), they actually don’t! I have a timeline in my recipe that shows the hands-on time for pita bread is just 20 minutes (with a 1-hour dough rise), so really doable. And the difference between this bread and store bought? No comparison!
Easy Artisan Bread. Truly an “anyone can do it” bread with a perfect crust that comes from baking it in a dutch oven. Once you try this, you’ll never go back to $5 loaves…
Simple French Baguettes (aka, The Bread You Can’t Stop Eating). Here is a bread that almost couldn’t be simpler – mix everything in a food processor (the kneading time is only 1 minute!), rise, shape, bake and eat. There’s also an option to let it rise in the fridge, so you can mix it in the morning and have fresh bread that night.
Easy Pesto Twist Bread Recipe. I developed this using my quick pizza dough so we could have a fun bread any time we wanted. It’s another yeast bread that’s literally done in minutes – and baking in a cast iron skillet gives the crust a wonderful crunch.
Quick Homemade Pizza Dough (for less than $1!). Speaking of that pizza dough – it’s another option for naturally eggless bread that your whole family will love. Pizza nights will never be the same when you can choose your own toppings.
Easy Sourdough Artisan Bread. If you have a sourdough starter, you can make a delicious, crusty bread, too, with a bit more tang than the yeast artisan bread.
Frugal Homemade Bread Recipe (Dairy Free, Egg Free) @ Frugal Family Home. This is a lovely, basic white bread loaf, perfect for sandwiches and more.
Easy Soft Dinner Rolls @ Cafe Delites. Not only are these mouth watering rolls egg-free, they also don’t need a mixer to make and only require a bit of kneading.
Homemade Bread In A Crockpot @ The Thrifty Couple. Did you know you can make bread in a crockpot? I didn’t, but this sure looks good and is normally egg free.
Beer Bread with Garlic and Cheese @ Today’s Creative Life. Adding beer to bread helps with rise and makes a tender loaf without the need for eggs.
Hard Apple Cider Bread @ Tidy Mom. Similar to beer bread, hard apple cider works to aid in rising (this recipe uses self-rising flour) and produces a tender loaf.
Easy Homemade Amish Bread @ The Happier Homemaker. This recipe gets it moistness from oil and a sweetness from sugar. The author says it’s so easy her kids make it.
Easy Eggless Milk Bread @ Wild Wild Whisk. Looking for a moist dinner roll that doesn’t include eggs like my whole wheat dinner rolls? Here’s your answer, though it does use dairy to get that tender crumb (milk is known for tenderizing breads). Obviously skip the egg wash and go with a cream wash – it would be just as good.
Beer Cheese Muffins @ Lemon Tree Dwelling. The same idea as the beer bread above, but in a convenient muffin form. You could flavor the muffins with other things, too.
Classic Cream Scones @ Add A Pinch. Cream scones can be your go-to scone recipe when you’re looking for eggless breads. You can leave them plain like pictured (is that glaze really “plain” though?), or add berries or nuts and citrus peel to change them up.
Authentic Indian Fry Bread @ Yellow Bliss Road. Does this count as a bread? Oh yes, I think so – and what a fun option for egg-free bread! You can dust it with sugar or leave it plain to eat with dinner, your choice.
Pineapple Nut Bread @ Homemade Food Junkie. This bread is not only egg free, but also vegan, vegetarian, and dairy free – this could work for so many people.
Glazed Banana Pumpkin Bread with Cinnamon Swirl @ Oh My Creative. Now this looks amazing, right? I had to double check that it didn’t include eggs because it sure looks like a rich dough and delicious treat. Which is probably because you can make this with eggs – or not by using the included flax meal substitute.
Eggless Banana Bread @ Genius Kitchen. Did you think all quick breads need eggs? While most do, you can make a good quick banana bread with this recipe – and this doesn’t even call for an egg substitute, but mashed bananas and applesauce. I’m thinking you may be able to make this into an apple bread by using all applesauce…what do you think?
I hope you were able to get some great ideas for bread recipes without eggs here! Keep this list handy for anytime you need to make eggless bread for family or friends.
