This week I decided to make a loaf instead of muffins. I’m always trying to see which way it tastes fresher the next day.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup spelt light flour

1/4 cup ground flax seeds

1/4 tsp sea salt

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup safflower oil

3/4 cup pure maple syrup

2 large organic eggs

1/4 cup greek yogurt

3 large bananas – mashed

1 cups semi sweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line with parchment paper a 9 x 5″ loaf pan. In a bowl mix both flours, ground flax seeds, sea salt and baking soda. In a separate bowl beat safflower oil, maple syrup, eggs and greek yogurt. Add in mashed bananas. Mix in dry ingredients into wet mixture then stir in chocolate chips. Pour batter into loaf pan and bake for 1 hour. Let cool for 10 minutes. Enjoy!

I have to say sometimes making a banana bread is just an easier choice and since yesterday was not the best baking day for me, at least I ended on a good note.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup spelt light flour

2 tsp baking powder

1/2 cup pure maple syrup

1/2 cup greek yogurt

2 large organic eggs

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup oil – safflower or coconut oil – melted

2 ripe bananas – mashed

3/4 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 5″ loaf pan and set aside. In a bowl mix together flours and baking powder. In a separate bowl blend maple syrup, greek yogurt, eggs, vanilla and oil. Add in mashed bananas and mix once again. Slowly mix in dry ingredients into wet ingredients. Add in chocolate chips. Pour batter into loaf pan. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until firm to touch. Take out of oven and let cool for 15 minutes. Slice the banana bread. Enjoy!

 

This weeks baked treat is from a site I’ve been following for the last few years. It’s called Eating Rules by Andrew Wilder. He started October unprocessed where you are challenged to eat unprocessed foods for the whole month. A great way to start to change your lifestyle and really look at what you put in your mouth. They have been featuring recipes from various sites. This one came from Clean and Delicious.

INGREDIENTS

1 1/2 whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp kosher or sea salt
1 1/2 bananas mashed
2 egg whites or 1 large egg
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup plain or Greek yogurt
1/2 cup organic cane or turbinado sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup of dark chocolate chunks

DIRECTIONS

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and spray a loaf pan.
Mix flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl.
In a separate bowl combine bananas, eggs, oil, yogurt, sugar, and vanilla. Mix until blended and then add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Add chocolate chips. Bake in the oven for 45 -55 minutes. Enjoy!
