Ground flaxseed infuses dessert breads with nutty nuances and significant amounts of beneficial omega fats. Riddled with chocolate chips, nobody will miss the walnuts in this guise of banana bread.
1 1/2 cups whole-wheat pastry flour
1/2 cup ground flaxseed
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1/2 cup 2% plain yogurt
1/3 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup melted coconut oil or canola oil
3 very ripe bananas, mashed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1. Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, stir together flour, ground flaxseed, baking soda, cinnamon, allspice, and salt. In a separate bowl, lightly beat eggs, and stir in yogurt, maple syrup, oil, banana, and vanilla extract. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and stir gently until everything is moist. Fold in chocolate chips.
2. Pour mixture into a greased 8 1/2-by-4 1/2-inch loaf pan. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let loaf cool in pan for 10 minutes before unmolding.
