I love to make banana bread. It makes the house smell really nice and it's wonderful to have a slice for breakfast! The recipe I typically use is made with processed white sugar, white flour and milk chocolate. I came up with this recipe, so I didn't have to feel guilty indulging in baked goods for breakfast.
2 over ripe bananas, peeled and mashed with a fork
1/2 cup apple sauce
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon chia seeds
1 tablespoon flax seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 organic 85% chocolate bar, chopped
1/2 cup pistachios, chopped
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
In a large mixing bowl combine, bananas, apple sauce, yogurt, eggs, honey and vanilla.
In a separate mixing bowl combine flour, chia, flax, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet slowly, just until combined.
Stir in chocolate and pistachios.
Pour mixture into a greased 9X5 loaf pan.
Bake for 45 minutes or until fork comes out clean.
