Banana Bread {with Flax}

This is one of my absolute favorite recipes! Its my Mom's classic recipe, only slightly modified with a little extra ground flax seed for Omega 3's. This Banana Bread is moist, light, not-too-sweet, and absolutely delicious. Perfect right out of the oven with a cup of tea. 

Banana Bread with Flax

1 1/4 Cups All Purpose, Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 Cup Ground Flax Seed (optional)
1 Cup Sugar
2 Eggs
1/2 Cup Canola Oil
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
2 Ripe Bananas, mashed
1/4 Cup Chopped Walnuts or Pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
1. Beat the eggs. Once beaten, add the oil and sugar. Beat to combine.
2. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, ground flax, and baking soda.
3. Working in batches, add the flour and baking soda mix to the liquid ingredients until completely combined.
4. Stir in the mashed bananas and nuts.
5. Pour batter into a greased, medium sized loaf pan.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 hour, or until a toothpick comes out clean.

{don't fret if your banana bread sinks in the middle. It will still taste amazing!}

Yum! Might need to eat some for breakfast. And lunch. And afternoon snack.
