The taste and texture of actual banana bread batter but one which is egg-free, edible and actually healthy for you! This delicious healthy Edible Banana bread batter recipe is for one and takes less than 5 minutes to whip up- It’s naturally gluten-free, vegan, chock full of protein and comes with a tested paleo and grain-free option!
“Don’t lick the bowl.”
“Arman, don’t like the bowl. Just wait, the cake will be ready in 40 minutes.”
“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.
Make this delicious healthy Edible banana bread batter for one and (can we just take a second to check out the texture again?!) to my fellow people out there who’ve been chased by the wooden spoon- I raise my dirty cake covered beaters to you.
Healthy Edible Banana Bread Batter for one
- 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 tablespoon granulated sweetener of choice**
- 2 tablespoon oat flour sub for coconut flour for paleo option
- Pinch sea salt
- 2 tablespoon nut butter of choice I used almond butter
- 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup can sub for another sticky sweetener
- Dairy free milk of choice optional
- Chocolate chips/nuts etc optional
- 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.
** 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.

What lame threats did you grow up hearing? Wait until you hear the ones I was told when I turned 18…
Would you rock the Cynthia hair do? Yes.

I’m really glad you put the ‘edible’ label on this because I’m never sure… 😛
Haha, it’s egg-free so it needs to be known 🙂
I’ve eaten a lot of raw batter and never gotten sick. It’s a scam. LOL I try to tell my kids now they can’t have the raw batter and then they see me sneaking it…
It totally is a scam! Now that one is at college, it’s a staple. The cinnamon brand shhh 😀
Yes, I used to lick cookie dough batter from the big jar when I was a kid! And my mom always told me I’d get salmonella and heart disease! Hehe, well now that I found this vegan banana bread batter, not only will this be my first time trying raw banana bread batter but I won’t get the stomach problems from regular dough! This looks incredible–so creamy and banana-licious!
YES! This is so good, Cassie- You’ll love it!
I miss you. I want to go swimming in this batter with you!
🙁 I miss you more!
CYNTHIAAAAA!! I love her… one of the real unsung heros of Rugrats, along with reptar…and Suzie Carmichael…
Can we sit and watch rugrats reruns together while eating this batter?
OMG. I want a reptar bar!
My mom’s favorite phrase was “go get me the spoon”.
Omg. ‘Arman, no desserts.’ #growingupAsian
Okay, forget what I said about your previous cake batters – this is where it’s at!! I’ve only ever once had a bite of banana bread and it wasn’t my piece of cake but (mashed) bananas? Yes please!
Lame threats? I can only think of the very serious threat of not being allowed to watch TV for days if I made a mistake. Those were some sad days …
This is so good- You’ll love it. 🙂
any chance this would be equally as soon without the oat flour and with coconut flour instead?
It looks like I’m a bit late to comment but I am totally thanking the Pinterest Gods for bringing me to your website! I just made this banana bread batter with almond flour and it was absolutely heavenly. Can’t wait to try more of your recipes!
oh YAY! Thanks Jen- I’m glad the Pinterest Gods brought you here too 🙂
You have to put it in thr microwave when everything is mixed together for just a few seconds and it’s so delicious!
Would this recipe still turn out without the protein powder? Or is there substitute?
Hi Rebecca! You can omit it, but substitute it with oat flour/oats and add a little extra sweetener 🙂
I am eating it as im typing this and its really good, im impressed lol insanely easy using everyday item, thanks!
Oooo, Big Man. You ROCK! How do you come up with such inventive recipes? I had some really ripe (should I even say past the eating stage) leftover bananas and didn’t know if they could be saved. The weather had turned unexpectedly hot and I didn’t want to turn on the oven. AND I’d just gone on a shopping trip and filled my refrigerator and freezer for the week so I needed something that would take up very little space. Voila! I found your recipe for Edible Banana Bread Batter. I browsed around your blog. You have a lot of creative healthy recipes I’m looking forward to making. Since I’m not a very creative person, I am grateful that you are and you are willing to share. Thank you.
