Are eggs necessary in quick breads?

I would like to make a banana bread to take to work but all recipes have egg in them.  I need it to be eggless.  Is that possible?  Should I substitute something else for the egg?

TIA!

The value of reading - never mind! I saw the thread further down for an eggless recipe.  :o)

In place of one egg, you can use 1 tablespoon ground flax seed in 3 tablespoons water, let sit until a 'gel" forms. This is regularly used in gluten free baking.

I appreciate all your responses!  It's fabulous to have so many diverse options - I appreciate your sharing your knowledge with me.  I have a wonderful friend who is vegan; it is great to know how I can keep her included in my baking.

Umm, Noel, you're responding to a bot spammer - one of many who have been on the attack here lately.

Those California bankruptcy attorneys must be having financial problems to have to resort to spam.   Since they are violating cyberlaw, perhaps a complaint filed with the California State Bar is in order.
