Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease a loaf pan. In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients – flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. If you prefer a different type of flour, feel free to sub that in. I like the chewiness (and added nutrition!) from using whole wheat.
In a small bowl, combine the ground flax with water to make a "flax egg" – let the mixture sit for a few minutes until thickened.
In another small bowl (sorry, this is a 3 bowl operation), mash the bananas and combine with the milk and vanilla. I like to leave the bananas a little lumpy so that I get big gooey bites of it in the final product. If you like smoother bread, whisk until the banana is pretty much pureed.
Combine the wet ingredients into the dry, and mix until just combined. Fold the walnuts and blueberries in – I like to use a LOT of both. In my opinion, you really can’t have too many.
Bake at 350 degrees for 60-75 minutes. The top will be golden brown, but test with a knife to make sure the middle has cooked through. It’s a pretty dense loaf!
Transfer to a cooling rack. Slice and eat a piece immediately.
I made this for my mom’s group this morning, and judging from amount that is left, I’d say it was a hit. The crust is crunchy and sweet, while the middle is gooey and dense – the best of both worlds.
It’s easy, it’s healthy, and as an added bonus – it makes your house smell amaaaaaaazing. Enjoy!Powered by Recipage
