Banana bread with Chia and Flaxseeds

I love banana bread and have been craving it! I made some the other day but it turned out terrible! I don't know if I didn't add enough of a certain ingredient or what, but it was crumbly and it tasted "healthy", not appetizing at all! Yuck! I woke up this morning determined to make my own banana bread. I wanted it to be healthy/healthful, but I hate that "healthy" know, the taste of the smell of any health food store.

So, here you go!

3/4 C. organic raw butter
2/3 C. organic can sugar
4 VERY ripe bananas
3 eggs at room temperature
1/2 C. milk (I wanted to use raw milk in this recipe, but I opted to use almond milk instead.)
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 C. GF all purpose flour.I used Mrs. Glee's All-Purpose Performance Blend
1/4 tsp. Himalayan salt crystals
2 tsp. raw chia seeds
2 tsp. raw whole flaxseeds

Grease a 9x5 bread pan. Pre-heat oven to 350*.
In a bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Once creamed, add in banana, eggs and milk. Mix well until well blended! No chunks of banana. It will creamy.
Add flour, salt, chia and flaxseed into the creamy mixture until well mixed.
Pour mixture into the bread pan. There will be left overs, which I poured into cupcake pans. I made 6 extra little cakes :)
The cupcakes bake fast! I left them in for 23 minutes. The bread pan took 55 minutes.

IF you have any leftovers, store in a container in the fridge.

  1. Yum! That looks delicious. I just tried Bavarian's organic flaxseed bread and it is scrumptious. Do you have any favorite pre-made GF brand breads? I am not the best baker..
