Cocoa Banana Berry Flax Bread

Serves: 10

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend (or long holiday weekend for many of you!) We were hitting 90+ on Cape Cod the last few days, which is just crazy! Throw some humidity into the mix and all I could think about was getting to the beach for a swim! But since I am traveling back to NJ today, I will give you a full recap of my eats and some great pictures this Wednesday for WIAW! So, until then I will leave you with this delicious recipe! I hope you enjoy it and have an amazing start to your week! 🙂

This bread had the perfect hint of cocoa mixed with the flavors of fresh berries and bananas! The bananas kept the bread extremely soft and moist too! It was a great sweet addition to my breakfast!

*I actually found that I liked it better after storing it in the refrigerator for a day! I think the flavors were enhanced a lot more!  🙂

  • It has been freezing here in Australia but that is because it is winter time. Love this bread. I've bought coconut flour but only used it once so far to make pancakes, I really need to branch out with it.

  • Love that this has so few ingredients! Do you think it would work okay to just use regular ground flax?

  • I so want to try this so I have to see if I can search out that flax in a local store - looks so delish!!!!! We had some very strange weather & expected HOT this week... boringish weekend but OK by me.. we did see the zombie movie which was intense so we did that! ;)

    We're back into triple digits here this week plus crazy high humidity (but that's Houston!). Yuck. Since moving here, summer is no longer my favorite season! This bread looks incredible...I'll be adding to my list of your recipes to make ;).
