Chickpea flour banana bread


I may be 4 months late but happy new year! I’ve gone off the grid a little bit. In between changing jobs, working interstate, moving house and all the end of year celebrations I put the website to the side but I’ve decided to get back to it. I hope you all had a very merry gluten free christmas and a lovely break.

So surprise, here is another banana bread recipe. I can’t bear to throw away the sad brown bananas that don’t get eaten so I end up making a lot of banana bread. Moths also ravaged my pantry so I re-stocked with Mckenzie’s gluten free flours. Their gluten range includes lentil, coconut, chickpea, corn, rice and quinoa flour. I decided to mix up the usual banana bread recipe with chickpea flour which gave it a light texture and nutty flavour which perfectly compliments the banana. Delightful! I threw some leftover strawberries on top but I also think some walnuts would go nicely with them as well.

Want to expand your gluten free flour repertoire? Take a look at this list of Mckenzie’s gluten free recipes for some guidance.

Happy baking.

    I made your banana bread yesterday and it was spectacular.

    I had to make a few changes because I ran out of chickpea flour. Instead of 1.5 cups of chickpea flour, I did 3/4 cup chickpea, 1/2 buckwheat and 1/4 linseed meal. I added a few walnuts in the mix for fun and popped defrosted frozen berries and a banana on top, as I was without strawberries.

    Beautiful recipe! Thank you!

      Hi Natalie! Amazing. Thank you for letting me know :). I love to hear about recipe adaptations. I almost never have the right ingredients for a recipe.
