Egg substitutes in breads

I am new to this baking my own bread thing.  I have been doing it by the seat of my pants for about three weeks and truly enjoy the time spent and enhanced flavors over store bought pastes.  I am also shifting to a vegan lifestyle.  That means no eggs or dairy.  I was wondering what substitutes can be used in baking bread to replace the eggs in some recipes.

I came across one article that says you can use banana + baking powder in place of eggs in cakes and cookies. I'm not sure what it'll taste or look like. I just thought I could give you a hand. In anyway, if you have extra cash it's not bad if you'll try it. Who knows it might turn out great compare to eggs. Furhtermore, it could also be an addition to your cook book.
