A perfect treat for breakfast or a snack: Banana Walnut Bread! I love to healthify it a bit with flax, coconut oil and heart healthy walnuts!

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup milk (we used almond)

  2. In a small bowl, add flour, flax seed, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Set aside.

  4. Add one egg at a time, then vanilla and milk.
  5. Slowly pour in flour mixture, beating to combine. Add walnuts.
  6. Add Greek yogurt and bananas, mixing only long enough to combine.

Recipe Notes

If you don't have coconut oil substitute with butter. To make muffins, pour batter into lined muffin tins and decrease baking time to 20-25 minutes.
