Banana bread is actually an American specialty. This moist cake, which is actually much more than just bread, has been baked there for many decades. In today’s diet, this classic can be spiced up with many other ingredients and made into delicious and healthy chia banana bread, for example.
The chia seeds not only give the banana bread an extra portion of nutrients. The pithy, crunchy feeling that overcomes the mouth when chewing the chia seeds also provides that certain extra. So why not go back to the tried and tested from time to time

The chia seeds not only give the banana bread an extra portion of nutrients.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In a large mixing bowl, mix together the all purpose flour, baking soda, and salt.
- In another large mixing bowl, whisk together the melted butter, sugar, egg. Then add the mashed banana, chia seeds, and the milk, lemon juice/apple cider vinegar, and combine into a thick batter.
- Slowly stir 1/2 cup of the flour mixture into the banana mixture, and fold until the flour has been incorporated. Repeat for each 1/2 cup until the flour mixture is all folded in. Add walnuts into the batter.
- Grease a 9x3x5 inch loaf pan (see Notes below to use other sized pans) with butter. Pour the batter into the pan or pans. Bake for 40-50 minutes – then take a toothpick, and stick it in the center of each loaf. If it comes out clean (no batter attached) then the bread is done. If it has batter stuck to the toothpick, then I put the loaves back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes and test again.
- When the bread is cooked through, remove from oven and allow to cool before slicing. Leftovers will keep for up to 3 days, or can be frozen for up to 3 months in a sealed bag.
