One bowl, chocolate chip vegan banana bread made with chickpea flour – only nine ingredients needed! Gluten Free + Dairy Free + Egg Free
In case you need another reason to keep a few bananas around I’ve got one for you right here.
Because when life hands you overly ripe bananas – it’s time to crank up the oven and get to baking! And honestly this time of year I’m pretty desperate for any excuse to turn on the oven because it’s just soo freaking cold.

How to Make: Chickpea Chocolate Chip Vegan Banana Bread
As far as baking goes this is one of those recipes that can’t get much easier than this. All you need is one bowl, nine ingredients and about 10 minutes of prep.
Start off with three ripe and spotty bananas and smash until almost no lumps remain. Once mashed mix in your wet ingredients: coconut oil and milk. Any type of milk will do so whatever you’ve got on hand works. Stir in your sugar – brown sugar is recommended for a slightly softer, moister bread. That being said I’ve testes this with coconut sugar and it still tastes great.
Move on to the dry ingredients: a combination of chickpea flour, tapioca flour, baking powder and cinnamon. The chickpea + tapioca flour combo has quickly become a favourite gluten free flour blend of mine (seen here, here and here to name a few). They’re also incredible flours to use for egg free baking since they’ve got a lot of binding powder between the two of them. After the wet and dry ingredients are fully mixed just stir in your chocolate chips and bake.
After about 40ish minutes in the oven you’re all set. Allow the bread to cool for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving. This bread tastes the best eaten the day of but you can keep it for 2-3 days. Just make sure you store it covered or wrapped up nicely to keep it moist.
