Healthy Banana Bread with Chia and Flax

Healthy Banana Bread with Chia and Flax

A moist and tasty banana bread is made using chia seeds and flax meal! This super delicious bread makes for a perfectly healthy, gluten-free and refined sugar-free snack.

I thought I would post one of my favorite desserts to make: banana bread. My different variations of this delicious dessert are some of my most popular recipes in my archives. If you searched banana bread on my blog you would get endless pages of results. Some different versions include: double chocolate, chocolate chip, lemon poppy seed, chocolate marble (I really like chocolate), cinnamon apple and blueberry flax.

For this bread, I was craving something classic. No crazy flavors. Instead, I added chia seeds and ground flax for a little extra fiber! Of course, I added protein powder for the extra protein but also to give it a delicious sweet vanilla flavor. You can use whatever kind of protein you like. Even plant based protein will work in this recipe. I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla Select protein. You can get 30% off all PEScience product using my affiliate code PBCHOCO on their website
