I'm afraid that is not possible, unless you want to save the file as filetype .xls, which risks loosing all sorts of other functionality.
Why are you asking?

You can delete the entire sheet that contains the query table and then query will be a "Connection only", If this table is result of power query.

You can turn the formation of structured references in formulas off in tools, options, Formulas, "Use Table Names in formulas".
There are many advantages in using tables. Too many not to use them IMO.
