Banana, Chocolate Chips, Walnuts Bread (Whole Wheat, Flax, and Oat Bran)

This recipe is inspired from http://www.prohealthcare.org/wellness/recipes/bkfst-bread/banana-flax/

I have made few changes though: using 2 bananas instead of 3, using brown sugar instead of white sugar, also by adding chocolate chips.

Wet ingredients:

2 medium ripe bananas (1 ½ cup mashed)

½ cup brown sugar

¾ cup skim milk

1 tsp. vanilla

1/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)

1/4 cup walnuts (optional)

Dry ingredients:

1 cup all purpose flour

1 cup whole wheat flour

½ cup ground flax

1/3 cup oat bran

1-2 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350°F. Mash bananas and sugar together in medium-sized mixing bowl using a fork. Add the milk, vanilla, chocolate chips, and walnuts. Add the dry ingredients and mix smooth.

Lightly spray a 9″ X 5″ non-stick loaf pan with vegetable cooking oil spray. Pour batter into pan and bake until loaf is done – when it springs back to the touch in the center and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45-50 minutes.

Notes:

Flax: Grind whole seeds in coffee grinder or buy milled or ground.

Oat Bran: Look for it in the hot cereal section of the grocery store.

Yield: 10 servings
