mmmmmm… cinnamon banana flaxseed bread

I just came up with an awesome new recipe. It was so awesome, in fact, that I had to blog about it immediately. Seriously, this stuff just came out of the oven, and here I sit, writing to you all. Aren’t I an awesome person?

I based my recipe off this one initially, but then I made quite a few changes and made it my own.

Suzy’s Cinnamon Banana Flax Seed Bread

  • 2/3 cup flax meal
  • 1/3 cup almond meal
  • 1/3 cup ground chia seed
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • a pinch salt
  • 1 ½ tsp baking soda
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 banana (green tipped) – mushed up with a fork
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup water

Cooking Steps

1. Oil baking pan. In mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients.
2. In another bowl, beat eggs together. Cut in butter, add banana and vanilla. Mix together.
3. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, adding water as needed to make batter pour-able (slightly dryer is better).
4. Pour batter into regular loaf pan. Top with unsweetened coconut flakes (if desired).
5. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 40 minutes until baked thru-out.

Suggestions for next time:
– Add more banana, or diced apple
– Add raisins or chocolate chips
– Mix unsweetened coconut flakes or sunflower seeds in to the batter

    “Chia seeds have been in Whole Foods for a long time, but they’re just now starting to grow in popularity,” said Drew Rosen, nutrition and cooking teacher at New York City’s Whole Foods Market Tribeca. “It’s an ancient crop, but because the seeds are so flexible and high in omega threes, they are just blossoming all over the markets in all different types of products.” ”
