Skip the sugary, store-bought banana bread and make your own delicious, healthy version.
Preheat oven to 180ºC and line a loaf tin with baking parchment and pour the mixture in
Whisk dry ingredients, then stir in all the wet ingredients using only ½ tbs maple syrup and mix until smooth. Alternatively throw everything into a food processor and blend until smooth.
Decorate the top with slices of excess banana and drizzle over the other ½ tablespoon of maple syrup to make a gloss
Bake at 180ºC for 50 mins
Cool on a rack completely before turning out of the tin, slicing and eating
Chia Berry Jam:
Mash the berries or blend them in a food processor.
Mix in the chia seeds,1 tbsp warm water and 1 teaspoon of the honey (and the vanilla extract and lemon juice, if using). Stir well to stop clumps forming or make it straight in the jar and shake to mix.
Keep the chia jam sealed in a jar in the fridge to set for at least an hour or until needed.
Taste and stir in a little more honey, if needed.
You could also top this with walnuts, goji berries, pumpkin seeds - or anything else that takes your fancy!*
