Healthier Flaxseed Banana Bread Photo Yield: one loaf


Notes: Use less Baking Blend (1/4 cup) if you prefer a more naturally sweet-tasting bread. The brown sugar is optional, depending on the sweetness of your bananas.


Preheat oven to 375 degrees and lightly grease a metal or glass loaf pan. In a large bowl, mash the bananas with the lemon juice, baking soda and baking powder. Then add eggs, milk, cinnamon, vanilla, salt, and stir. Add flour, flaxseed and stir until just combined. Pour the batter into the loaf pan and sprinkle oats on top. Bake for 45 minutes - 1 hour, or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick or knife comes out clean.
