FITSUGAR: OMEGA-3 BANANA NUT BREAD
Reader Recipe from FITSUGAR
"This is my Momís famous banana bread recipe. I think it originally came from the red-and-white-checkered Better Homes and Gardens recipe book that everyone who got married in the '70s has. This recipe is a bit updated with less sugar, more fiber, and an insane dose of heart-healthy omega-3s (flaxseed, walnuts, and chia seed gel). To make chia seed gel, mix chia seeds with water: one part seeds, nine parts water, and let sit for 30 minutes.
Learn how to make the recipe after the break!
Fear not if youíre short on chia gel ó itís not exactly mainstream, but definitely a worthy addition to your pantry. You can use virgin coconut oil instead, which gives it a really nice texture and flavor and adds a host of health benefits. This is a great breakfast bread or healthy after-school snack for the kiddos! Use organic ingredients when possible."
