Healthy Banana Bread


Welcome to your new favorite banana bread recipe that's not only delicious but also aligns with your health and dietary preferences. This grain-free, gluten-free, and high-protein banana bread is a game-changer in the world of baked goods. Featuring the innovative use of Banana Bread ChiChi, a chickpea hot cereal, this recipe promises to deliver on taste without compromising on nutrition.


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup Banana Bread ChiChi (chickpea hot cereal)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • Optional: chocolate chips or walnuts for an extra indulgence


  1. Preheat Your Oven: Start by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C), ensuring it's at the perfect temperature for baking your banana bread.

  2. Mix Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, mash the ripe banana until smooth. Add in the egg and mix until well incorporated. Stir in the Banana Bread ChiChi and baking soda, blending until you have a uniform batter. If you're opting for a bit of extra sweetness and texture, fold in your choice of chocolate chips or walnuts at this stage.

  3. Prepare for Baking: Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan, smoothing the top with a spatula. The consistency and natural sweetness of the Banana Bread ChiChi make it an excellent base for this recipe, ensuring your banana bread will be moist, flavorful, and satisfying.

  4. Bake: Place your loaf pan in the preheated oven and bake for about 30 minutes. You'll know it's done when the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

  5. Cool and Enjoy: Allow the banana bread to cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely. This patience pays off, as it makes the bread easier to slice and enhances its flavors.

This grain-free, gluten-free banana bread with ChiChi is not just a treat for those following specific dietary needs; it's a delightful experience for anyone who appreciates a healthier take on classic comfort food. The chickpea hot cereal adds a unique texture and boosts the protein content, making this banana bread a nourishing option for breakfast, a snack, or even dessert.

So, next time you're in the mood for something sweet, yet wholesome, give this recipe a try. It's simple, satisfying, and packed with the goodness of chickpeas, proving that healthy eating doesn't have to be boring or restrictive. Enjoy your baking adventure with ChiChi – your taste buds (and body) will thank you!
