Banana Flax Seed Bread

- 15th January 2017
Moist, tender, healthy and quick to make, Banana Flax Seed Bread combines the sweetness of banana and crunch of flax seeds to create a loaf that is high on dietary fibre. Flaxseed is one of the best sources of omega-3 fats which are good for the heart and when powdered in food is even more potent. Banana is a healthy fruit that aids digestion. Together they taste nutty and soft and make for a great handmade, heart healthy breakfast recipe. This bread is also quick to make and takes very little prep time. Toasted almonds can also be added for a bit of crunch.
