Garbanzo Flour Banana Walnut Bread: Gluten- and Cow's-Milk-Free

Garbanzo Flour does not Bake Up Your Granny's Banana Bread

If you've seen my Garbanzo Peach Cobbler recipe you are already somewhat familiar with what may be a new-to-your-kitchen flour. Also known as chickpea flour, garbanzo flour was definitely new to me and I'm glad I found it!

Chick Pea Flour Recipe?

If you tried the peach cobbler then you are aware that the garbanzo flour has a stronger flavor than more common flours. Like the cobbler recipe, this chick pea flour banana bread has no cow’s milk or gluten in it.

Through developing that recipe I came to the conclusion that mixing garbanzo flour with oat flour would be a good possibility because oat flour is so much lighter in weight and taste. That was a good guess. :)

As well, I thought it would be a good idea to try a banana bread recipe because baked banana is a strongly flavored fruit that goes well with lots of cinnamon and other spices. This tactic proved to be a good plan.

While the garbanzo cobbler wasn’t bad, this recipe was simply extra good. It is now a family staple.

This garbanzo flour banana bread was a homerun!

Why use Garbanzo Flour to Make Banana Bread?

Why Not Use Another Flour? This unique flour is loaded with nutrition and it is a gluten free product. Besides being an easy way to make your own home-made, creamy hummus, this flour is progressively being used in other recipes because it is a great source of protein and a 1 cup serving has about half our daily value of fiber. Check out just one of the nutrition reports on garbanzo flour and you’ll be looking for ways to use it in meals for your family. After you try this banana bread, that is.


What Sweeteners are Used for Garbanzo Banana Bread?

What's Best? If you've read through my food hubs you may have noticed that I am careful about what I use to sweeten foods. Although I only used ordinary brown sugar in this recipe, I would probably use half brown, half sweet leaf (stevia) next time--following package directions for equivalents. Honey or agave make great sugar substitutes in breads and desserts, and they would work equally well in this recipe, but I never, ever use artificial sweeteners.

Have you ever tasted baked goods made with garbanzo flour?

Garbanzo Flour Banana Bread for Breakfast, Lunch, or Dinner

For a fast and yummy beginning this recipe would be a great on the go breakfast for giving your family a super start to their day. It would also be an afternoon snack to smile about, and it could also make an elegant dessert by adding a glaze or caramel topping after a pumpkin soup supper.


High-Protein Banana Bread or Banana Bread Extraordinaire or Banana Bread Surprise

I can't decide on a name for this recipe. Which name would you choose to give it? Feel free to note your choice in the comments section at the end of the hub.

• Before the recipe begins, here are a couple of side notes: A) I put in heaping measures of spices and I may add a hint of ginger next time. B) To make the oat flour I ground approximately 18 tablespoons of rolled oats in a coffee grinder dedicated for flax seed. The oats work very well in it.)

      I made this today, to be honest I was a bit skeptical on the ingredients but wow!! This is one of the best gluten free banana breads I have made. I usually have a problem with it crumbling, especially when its still a little warm, but not this one :)

      I doubled the spices, reduced the sugar to 1/2 a cup and added an extra banana. Ended up cooking it an extra 5 min.

      Delicious

      Will definitely be keeping this as my GF Banana bread staple. Thanks so much

      Turns out that chickpeas aka garbanzo beans are rich in the amino acid, tryptophan. Which is the precursor to serotonin. Which is the feel-good hormone. I am definitely pro all things garbanzo.

      I haven't posted the brownie recipe yet. That'll be my next project! I use a mix of flours that includes garbanzo. No one even knows that I don't use traditional white flour. I've noticed garbanzo is easier to use with savory recipes because its flavor doesn't always go with sweet, but the chocolate seems to mask the flavor. I'm sure the banana does the same.

      vespawoolf:

      Thanks very much for stopping in to check this recipe out. So far, my favorite recipe using the garbanzo flour is may banana bread. Though the garbanzo flour is very healthy, it has to be paired with just the right main ingredient because of its strong flavor. I've not tried it with chocolate but am going to see if your garbanzo flour brownie is on your profile page.

    • vespawoolf profile image

      vespawoolf 4 years ago from Peru, South America

      Although I don't eat a gluten-free diet, I do try to limit our intake of refined flour and sugar. (although my Hubs may not always reflect that!) We enjoy garbanzo flour brownies, so why not banana bread, too? I look forward to trying this. I like your use of coconut oil and I'd probably add a little stevia, as you suggested, so I can decrease the amount of brown sugar. I've linked my banana bread recipe to this one for those who might be interested in a gluten-free alternative. Thank you!

      Thanks for your input. I have been hearing mixed reviews on agave lately.

      Hope you enjoyed your Garbanzo banana bread! I'm not sure I would like the apples in the cobbler for the garbanzo flour is strong flavored, as mentioned above, and I like a stronger fruit with it, but with extra spices it might be fine for someone who is used to the garbanzo flour flavor. My favorite is the banana bread.

      Thanks for stopping in to check out this recipe., and welcome to HubPages. Maybe we'll see some of your work soon?

      I want to say , using Organic Agave is like using Corn Syrup for your

      Arteries..Yes it is the truth, and it is NOT healthy. It is Artery Clogging.

      As a matter of fact. In Dr. Andrew Weil's new book (amazon) he does use Agave, and he did on Dr. Oz's show a few weeks ago.

      Now Dr. Weil said he made a mistake in his new book, and said, Do Not use Agave. It is Not Healthy at all..

      I can eat wheat, but I do not think it is healthy any longer. As Monsanto has been using using GMO for too many years, even if we buy Organic sprout bread.

      So I bought Garbanzo bean flour and Organic Coconut flour.

      I have some very Ripe banana's, so I'm going to make your Banana bread now.

      I was hoping to read some reviews here about someone that has made it!!

      Wondering if instead of using peaches for your Cobbler, if I could use fresh Apples????

      Thanks for your website it is very informative, and such happy people here...

    • jessefutch profile image

      jessefutch 4 years ago from North Carolina

      Garbanzo beans make an amazing Cuban dish, Spanish Bean Soup. I've seen garbanzos ground into traditional Cuban tortillas (somewhat similar to "regular" tortillas, I suppose). I guess the progression to garbanzo flour is a natural one. My son has Asperger's, so the GF aspect is amazing. He actually HAS TO eat banana bread every day with his lunch. I think this will be a great add to our repertoire! I just need to convince my Asperger's wife to make her banana bread this way! Wish me luck!

      How I missed responding to your comment for so long is a curiosity, but thanks for stopping in with your input!

      Using various flours is becoming more popular due to people's need to avoid gluten. As the nutritious values become more well known, we are trying them out even if we don't have a need to be GF.

      I still have some garbanzo flour recipes I want to work on. Maybe now that the weather has cooled again I'll get back to baking with this high protein flour product.

      So glad you like the sounds of this recipe--yes, the recipe would work with other flours, however I don't think you'll have any trouble finding or even making your own garbanzo flour.

      Thank you for mentioning that garbanzos are also called chickpeas! I knew that, and meant to make that a main point in both my banana bread and my peach cobbler hubs, but I was so focused on developing the recipes I completely forgot. I think it's because I like the sound of the word garbanzo. It's fun to say and write! :) I'll try to rework the hubs soon so that they highlight the fact that garbanzos have other names--cece bean, chickpeas, garbanzos, chana, and more!

      So appreciate your coming by with your input!

      This sounds like the perfect recipe for me, and would love to try it, but what are garbanzo beans? I'm wondering if I can get this flour in the UK. Will it work with any other kinds of flour, I wonder? It looks good, and I'm sure it tastes great too. Will try it if I can track down the ingredients..

      So encouraging to hear that you liked the cobbler, Cloverleaf. I'm inspired to go ahead and try my next experiment with garbanzo flour, but we've been enjoying this banana bread a little too much at our house so I'll wait just a bit. :)

      Thanks very much for your kind visit!

      Hi rtalloni,

      If your banana bread is as good as your peach cobbler then you are most certainly on to a winner here!!, Great job.

      So glad you like the recipe and that it could meet some of your needs. Maybe you should post that Persian cookie recipe for us-hint, hint. :)

      Thanks kindly for stopping by and sharing your input!

      Your recipe sounds nutritious and delicious. I haven't experimented much with other types of flour which makes this recipe very interesting.

      So glad to know you enjoyed the garbanzo cobbler! I'm excited to learn to use this flour because of its nutritional value, but the recipes are yum.

      Thanks bunches for letting me know!!!

      Wow...I'm vegetarian, but trying to minimize dairy (disrupts normal GI function for me) and gluten (it's inflammatory). I LOVE bananas and eat them constantly. I'm also a fan of garbanzo flour - there are these Persian cookies made of it that I love - and of flax seeds' egg-substituting properties. Can't wait to make this!

      @ homesteadbound: Try using a food processor to break down the dried beans first, and then grind to a flour.

      @ RTalloni: This sound delicious. I can see the banana standing up to the strong taste of the bean flour. Sounds like a great recipe.

      I am intrigued to know about the Banana Bread Surprise, because it....

      Well your peach cobbler was a hit with us, so I will definitely be trying your Banana walnut bread, I like the idea of mixing the garbanzo with the oat flour.

      Thank you for sharing.

      Indeed, garbanzo flour is made simply by grinding the dried beans, however, you might want to check to see if your grinder is equipped to handle beans as not all grinders can handle large beans, or the different moisture levels they can have. Hope you can give this a try soon.

      So appreciate that you came by!

      It really is fantastic. :) Because the garbanzo flour has such a strong flavor I was wondering how it would pair with the banana flavor. I definitely like it better than with the peaches--not that I didn't like my peach cobbler.

      Very interesting recipe. Too bad I don't have any garbanzo flour because I have the very ripe bananas. I have the dried garbanzos. I wonder if you can just grind up the beans to make the flour? I'm glad that you shared that oat flour is lighter, that is good for me to know for future baking. Thanks.

      Gosh that sounds fantastic. For no other reason than health, I always try to eat well. I hadd never heard of garbanzo flour before this. Your banana walnut bread sounds great and I hope to try this one out. Up and awesome. :)
