I make this for my vegetarian daughter. The whole family loves it. I don't usually add sugar, unless we have company because my family is used to low sugar treats. As a special treat sprinkle some semi sweet chocolate chips on top before you bake!


  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease and flour loaf pan.
  2. Rinse chickpeas.
  3. Use blender to mush chickpeas with the yogurt.
  4. Add bananas and continue to blend till smooth, thick consistency
  5. Scrape sides and check for large pieces of chickpeas -- if you find them keep blending.
  6. In one bowl, combine chickpea mixture with all other ingredients.
  7. Stir together.
  8. Put in loaf pan.
  9. Bake for an hour, until toothpick comes out clean.
