Banana Chia Seed Bread

I was recently introduced to the healthy goodness of “Chia Seeds” and since then I have been thinking of ways to incorporate them in my diet.

I am still an amateur when it comes to baking but one thing that I can bake well is – a Banana Bread. I usually put walnuts in my banana bread to give it a nice nutty flavor, however this time I decided to replace walnuts with chia seed and that’s how this “Banana Chia Seed Bread” came into being.



Dry Ingredients:
1.5 cup all purpose flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt

Wet Ingredients:
1 large egg (room temperature)
4 tbsp. butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

Star Ingredients:
1/3 cup chia seeds
3 large over-ripe bananas (smashed)


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Butter a loaf pan, set aside.
  • Wet ingredients – In a small bowl cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Now add egg, vanilla extract and smashed banana, and beat to incorporate.
  • Dry ingredients – In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • Combine the wet and dry ingredients.
  • Fold in chia seeds, and pour the batter into the greased loaf pan.
  • Bake for 50 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  • Let it rest in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack to cool.

Don’t forget to warm it up a little before you eat it!
