Banana Bread

July 14, 2014

This date-sweetened protein-rich bread is great for breakfast or anytime of day. An awesome and easy way to get more beans into your diet (without even realizing it)!

Banana Bread


  • 1 cup garbanzo bean flour
  • 1 cup oat flour
  • 1 cup brown rice flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 cup almonds (or other nuts)
  • 1 cup dates
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1 1/4 cups water

  • 1 cup blueberries (optional) (fresh or frozen)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Lightly oil a 12-muffin tin or two 8.5 x 4.5-inch (or similar size) loaf pans.
  3. In a bowl, combine the first five dry ingredients.
  4. In a blender, add the remaining ingredients (except blueberries) and blend until smooth. Add more water if needed to blend smoothly.
  5. Pour the blended ingredients into the dry ones and mix until combined. Add the blueberries and stir again.
  6. Bake 30-35 minutes (muffins) or 55-60 minutes (breads) or until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool for a few minutes before moving to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Yields: 12 muffins or 2 loaf breads
