Omega 3 Banana Bread

My 3 year old daughter and I love to bake. And my mom gifted me a new microwave/convection oven with steam that I had to try last night. So, we baked high fibre, omega 3 banana bread. It was yummy!

2 bananas
1 cup milk or other liquid
1 egg (free range happy hens or omega 3)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 to 1/2 cup of oil or melted butter (your choice!)

Mix in blender until smooth. Or, smoosh the bananas with a fork and mix all in a bowl.

Then in another bowl, mix well
1 cup white flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour (I recommend from the mill in Manotick if you are local)
1/2 cup wheat bran
3 tablespoons each of chia seeds and flax seeds (optional, but highly recommended!)
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients, mix until blended, then pour into a silicone bread pan or a greased bread pan. Bake at 350 for up to an hour, or until a knife comes out clean.

Not too sweet, and lovely crunchy with the added seeds.

Eat warm with fresh butter.
