Banana Pistachios Oat ChocoChip Cake

Banana Oat Pistachios ChocoChip Cake

Banana!!!! say it the way Minions do.

Banana is a staple in our pantry, I buy it every week but we are not big banana eaters. When Daddy C see’s them turning black he would always tell me “Why didn’t you pack me 1 to eat in the office?” but he really doesn’t bother getting one to eat at home.

Growing up in Davao meant we had a variety of bananas available – lacatan, latundan, señorita, and saba (this are the only ones that I know). My favorite among them is the “señorita” it’s a small one with a whiter flesh and you can eat all in one bite.

Yes. I buy bananas and wait for them to turn black which means they are very RRRRRipppe and then the kitchen fun begins. I bake something and viola it’s gone in a day or two plus it is also a healthy school snack for LittleMan V.


The original recipe which I got from AmbitiousKitchen is vegan and gluten free. I made use of the quick oats I have in the pantry added some left over ground pistachio’s from V’s cake and laban milk (which is what I use whenever recipe calls for buttermilk).

Banana Pistachios Oat ChocoChip Cake


2 cups Oatmeal Flour (blitz about 3 cups of oatmeal on a blender till it looks like a flour)
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
5 very Rrrripppe Bananas, mashed (skin has turned black)
1 tbsp Oil
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1/2 cup Chocolate Chips
1/3 cup Laban Milk or ButterMilk


Preheat oven to 180 C. Spray (or grease with butter and flour) desired baking pan I used a small bundt pan.

Measure dry ingredients in a bowl – oat flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

Use a different bowl for your wet ingredients – using a wooden spoon mix mashed bananas, brown sugar, vanilla extract, laban milk and oil until it’s incorporated well and looks like a creamy mixture.

Slowly add your dry mixture to your your wet ingredients and mix until just combined.

If you have leftover oat flour, dust chocolate chips with them before you fold it in the cake batter.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean.

Hi, my name is Abigail a stay at home Mama of two LittleOnes and currently residing in Dubai, UAE since 2009. This is my little space online where I share activities, places we've been, food we enjoy and snippets of our daily expat life. ‘Cuddles and Crumbs’ is a combination of the two main things I share on this blog: cuddles (family) and crumbs (food).


  1. great recipe! Hubby is crazy with anything nuts. Will bookmark this and hopefully I can beat my son to some very ripe bananas — he loves them ‘spotted’ (will eat 2-3 in one sitting lol!)
