Whoa… I know that is a mouthful of a recipe name title “thing-a-ma-bob.” Or we can just call is Flax Banana Bread? Guess it’s been a while since I’ve done a recipe; Whatever.
Point is, is that it is really delicious and it’s a spin off one of my favorite recipes from Simply Gluten-Free. I love that it’s so simple and it’s low in calories. Not to mention the stats are pretty awesome.
If you’d like to experiment with using 1/4 cup of protein powder in the place of the rolled oats or maybe some almond flour, you are more then welcomed to try. Eventually I want to try that out, so if you do it before me let me know how it goes. Okay, let’s not wait any longer. Here is the recipe, enjoy!Gluten-Free PB, Flax, & Chia Maple Banana Bread Ingredients:
- 2 Large Eggs
- 2 Tbsps Unsweetened Vanilla Soy or Almond Milk
- 1/3 Cup of Rolled GF Oats
- 1/3 Cup of Peanut Butter (or your choice)
- 2 Small Ripe Bananas
- 1/2 tsp of Pure Vanilla Extract (use maple for extra maple flavor goodness)
- 2 tsps of Pure Maple Syrup
- 2 Tbsp Ground Flax Seeds*
- Dash of Sea Salt
- 2 tsps of Chia Seeds*
- 2 tsps of Sugar (I used a combo of Stevia and Brown)
- (*save some flax and chia for garnish)
Set your oven to 325 degrees. [Bake for 25-35 minutes, depending]. Take the liquid ingredients; eggs, syrup and milks and blend in blended. Then add nut butter and banana. Blend more until bananas are pureed. You can leave it a bit chunky if you don’t mind banana pieces. Then add the rest of the ingredients and blend until mixture is smooth. Let it sit for about 5-10 minutes so the chia seeds can expand. Then take a bundt pan and sprinkle some chia and flax (and maybe some maple) to the base of the pan along with non-stick cooking spray.You can also use a muffin, cake or loaf pan. Pour the mixture into the pan and bake! I like to check around the 15-20 minutes mark to see how long extra it may need.Once it’s done, remove and let it sit for about 5-10 minutes before removing form bundt pan (or what ever you have it in). Sprinkle with extra chia, flax and drizzle a smidge o’ maple or caramel sauce (NOT A GLOB) and serve warm!Each piece average (Serves 8): 110 Calories, 6g Fat, 5g Protein, 10 Carbs, 2g Fiber, 5g Sugar
