Chia Seeds Banana Bread

Banana is one of my favourite fruit. Anything with banana, I surely will try
This recipe I saw is just one of so many banana bread recipes I'd like to try. But the use of chia seeds intrigued me to give it a try asap LOL
So here it is...

I got two side cracks instead of one at the centre LOL
It's bouncy when I touched the top :)
Recipe is from Sharon Lam of Delishar
What you need:
1 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour (original recipe used 1 cup plain flour & 3/4 cup whole wheat flour)
1 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar (I used fine brown sugar)
3 over ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup canola oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup buttermilk (I used low fat plain yoghurt)
2 eggs
  1. Preheat oven to 165degC. Line a 20x10cm loaf pan
  2. Mix mashed bananas, vanilla extract, sugar, yoghurt, and oil until combined
  3. In another mixing bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and chia seeds
  4. Add wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix until just combined. A little visible flour traces are fine. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan
  5. Bake for 1 hour 20 mins or until skewer inserted comes out clean
Very easy to make, it's soft, moist, full of banana flavour with a slight crunch from the chia seeds. Delicious!

A slice of yumminess :)

  1. Hi Alice,

    Due to its caffeine content and my sensitivity to caffeine , I have now try baking with chia seeds at all... Seeing your yummy loaf, maybe I should try baking with a reduced amount of chia seeds first.


  2. I love this recipe very much, I must remember to bake this when I have over ripe bananas. Thanks Alice.

  3. I baked two loaves yesterday and it was lovely. For one of them I added 1 tablespoon of espresso. It turned out very well too. Thanks for sharing the recipe! ;) xoxo

  4. Thank you for the link back dear! I love the darker colour of your banana bread and the use of all whole wheat as well! :)
