  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 1 large loaf pan.
  2. Blend bananas, chickpeas, butter, dates, almond flour, honey, eggs, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, vanilla extract, and salt together in a blender or food processor until batter is smooth. Pour batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and a knife inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool in pan for 15 minutes before slicing.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • This can also be baked in 2 small loaf pans for 40 minutes.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

We loved it. I used coconut oil instead of butter and added a handful of chocolate chips. We liked that it was so moist. It was hard to believe it was so healthy and yummy at the same time.

This recipe was delicious! Very healthy and good flavor. Ours turned out a bit too moist, much like bread pudding. Next time I will try adding some oatmeal to give it a bit more structure. T...

These are delicious! I had never tried to bake with chickpeas before, and was dubious about what the results would be, but I was very happily surprised! Even my fussy 5 year old was more than ha...

I made this, and it was very good. I made only a few changes. I added a 1/4 more almond flour and used 2 tbsp stevia instead of honey. I would use banana extract instead of vanilla next time....
