Banana Bread “Batter”

Another healthy cookie dough recipe! (Or dessert hummus…depends on who you’re serving it to 😉 ) This one is banana flavored and tastes like chocolate chip banana bread batter…yum! The best part is you can eat a whole bowl without getting a stomach ache (what happens every time I bake banana bread and eat the dough…).

I served this with crackers and pretzels to dunk in, but serve with whatever sounds good to you! Or eat it with a spoon straight from the bowl. Dinner and dessert all at once 🙂


Banana Bread “Batter”


1 can chickpeas

2 bananas

2 tbsp vanilla

1/4 almond milk (regular milk would work too)

3/4 cup rolled oats

1/8 tsp salt

brown sugar or baking stevia to taste

as many chocolate chips as you chose (I like a lot – semi-sweet tastes the best)



Mix chickpeas and bananas in a food processor until combined. Remove, place in a large bowl, and stir in remaining ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Note: adjust the amount of almond milk for a more runny or more thick consistency. Eat up!

  1. Hi Haley – Love getting your recipe posts! There was a great easy recipe in last weeks NYT’s Dining section for “fruit filled scuffins” (hybrid Scone and Muffin) I made them with blackberry fruit preserves and they were delicious and healthy. You may enjoy them for a breakfast treat:)
