Have you ever seen a simply banana read look THIS delicious?? Just wow. The combination of peanut butter and banana is one of my favorites! It’s unfortunate to know that some people are allergic to peanuts . . . it is just so upsetting to think about. Peanut butter is my love. Aside from cinnamon. Lol. Anyways. This moist and flavorful banana bread is perfect for breakfast or a light snack during the day. Serve with a cup of coffee or milk and you are ready to go! Happy Eating~ 🙂
Make sure you have VERY ripe bananas to ensure bold flavors of banana in your recipe. If you are in a rush and do not have ripe bananas, just put your regular yellow bananas on a baking sheet and bake for 30-40 minutes on 300 degrees Fahrenheit in the oven. Take it out of the oven and let it cool for 30 minutes so the sugars are able to come out, causing the banana to nicely brown.
As you read the recipe below, you will notice a strange ingredient that makes you wonder, “What the heck is that?” Well. Let’s see. What exactly IS ground flaxseed? Flaxseed meal is simply just ground up whole flaxseeds (also called linseed), which provides more nutrients since it is easier to digest. The seeds are from the flax plant that are used to make the linen of our clothes. This antioxidant-rich seed is very high in lignens (chemical compound with antioxidant qualities), omega-3 (the “good fats” that our body can not produce on its own), fiber, vitamin B1, good carbohydrates, and phytochemicals. There are many benefits to eating flaxmeal such as lowering cholesterol, improve blood sugar, prevent against cancer, prevent hot flashes, and flushing out the bad chemicals in the body. How can you add this to your diet? You can simply replace 1 egg with 1 tablespoon of flaxmeal+3 tablespoons of water to a recipe such as pancakes, muffins, cookies, breads, bars, casseroles, pizza crusts, dinner rolls…you name it! Just be reminded that flaxmeal can add a little of a nutty flavor whenever you add it to a recipe.
