“ARMAN, what did I just say.”

“That’s it, I’m getting the spoon!” 

Oh, the joys of growing up in a household where kitchen utensils didn’t have just one use.

I used to wonder why mum used to be so dismissive and annoyed whenever I offered to help her out in the kitchen. At first, she thought her son was being kind and considerate. However, clearly I had ulterior motives from such a young age. Mum would do her best with threats but her notion of threats were…..slightly over the top. Just slightly. 

“Eating raw cake batter will give you worms!”

“Eating raw cake batter will make you get rashes!”

“Eating raw cake batter will turn you green”

“Eating raw cake batter will make Niki’s hair fall out”

…..She actually thought the final threat would be off-putting. If anything, I probably ate even more raw cake batter. I mean, I wouldn’t mind if Niki looked like Cynthia from Rugrats.

As much as I love banana bread (especially slathered with salted butter), there’s just something about its batter, which is so darn delicious. It’s rich, sweet and creamy texture is something which you literally cannot stop at one taste. I’m not even exaggerating when I say that most of the time whenever I ‘helped’ mum with baking sweet breads, only 3/4 of the batter would make it into the oven. 

You can see now why the wooden spoon came into play. After I made my Pumpkin Cookie Dough for one and the snickerdoodle cookie dough for one, I decided to pay homage (and stick my tongue out) to my childhood, the wooden spoon and the times my mum used silly threats- Healthy Edible Banana Bread for one

Let’s talk banana bread…batter. This healthy Edible banana bread batter has the taste and texture of a classic banana bread batter, but it’s actually perfectly suitable for breakfast or a snack any time of the day! It used a combination of fruit, oat flour (check out the paleo option!), coconut flour, protein powder and a few fun add-ins which give it the batter like consistency- Just check out the pictures as they showcase this accurately. Not only is this banana bread batter naturally gluten-free, vegan and refined sugar-free, it also comes with a paleo option! 

I’ve been really digging this for breakfast and also tested it to see if it was freezer friendly- It definitely is, but please note if you go the paleo option, you’ll need to thaw it out longer than the standard- Preferably overnight.

Ingredients

  • 1 small-medium overripe banana mashed
  • 1 scoop protein powder of choice I tried a paleo blend, a vegan blend and a casein blend*
  • 1-2 T granulated sweetener of choice**
  • 2 T oat flour sub for coconut flour for paleo option
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 2 T nut butter of choice I used almond butter
  • 1 T pure maple syrup can sub for another sticky sweetener
  • Dairy free milk of choice optional
  • Chocolate chips/nuts etc optional

Instructions

  • In a mixing bowl, combine your mashed banana with the protein powder, flour of choice, granulated sweetener of choice and sea salt and mix well.
  • In a microwave safe bowl or stovetop, melt your nut butter with maple syrup until combined. Pour into the dry mixture and mix well until fully combined. If batter is still too crumbly, using a tablespoon, add dairy free milk until a very firm batter is formed. If batter is too thin, add a dash more flour.
  • Transfer to a bowl and top with chocolate chips/nuts etc if desired and enjoy or refrigerate for later.

Notes

* Protein powder is optional but if you do omit, add an extra tablespoon or two of flour. I don't use whey protein powder in my recipes because they generally tend to make recipes more liquid-like.
** I didn't use any sweetener as my protein powder was sweetened and my banana was sweet enough.
If you freeze the recipe, it's best to thaw overnight in the refrigerator.

    1. Haha! I’m imagining your Mum chasing you around the kitchen with a wooden spoon. You probably totally deserved it, too! But I’m with ya…banana bread is one of my favorite childhood memories. My mom always makes the best banana bread ever! But I couldn’t eat the batter…and now I can thanks to you. Thanks, mate, thanks a lot. 🙂

    2. This looks AMAZING! I am a giant banana bread fan. You may have already answered this in previous posts, but since I am new to the blog I am going to ask….what type of Paleo protein powder do you use? I am looking for a good one. Thanks!! Love the blog!

    3. My mum is a scary enough person, there were no threats necessary to keep me in check!

      I love the sound of this and I will make it for breakfast tomorrow. If you keep pumping out the recipes at this pace I’ll blissfully end up in all 4 houses!

    4. I ALWAYS lick the bowl. In 30 years I’ve never gotten the salmonella I was threatened with, so I’m not quitting. Sometimes the batter is better than the finished product!

    5. I think my mom scarred me for life when I was little by telling me that I’d get salmonella from eating raw eggs, because eating raw batter has never been appealing to me. That being said, anything and everything without raw eggs is fair game. Whipped cream used to bel my absolute favourite thing to eat mass amounts of while Mom was baking.

    6. When I tell the Hubby not to lick the bowl, it’s because it’s hot. He never listens and always burns himself. Maybe I should start using a wooden spoon to make him behave…one in the kitchen that is. 😉

    7. HAHAHAHAHA can we talk for one second about the fact that when i was little i ate a bowl of raw brownie batter and was rushed to the hospital vomming everywhere =l… and i wonder why i’m allergic to eggs now?

      but i must be serious for 5 seconds (all time record) and say that this might be my favorite recipe you’ve ever posted (well actually nothing will top the carrot cake) but i am SO EXCITED to make this and i just had to let you know the incredible status of such anticipation!
