Chia Seeds Banana Bread – Delishar

Super simple one bowl bake that does not require a mixer at all! Well, ok maybe 2 if you consider the other bowl that you prepare the flour in. Quite honestly, you can just use your blender to mix the wet ingredients together and pour it into your wet, which saves you more time!

I like a little hand work out before enjoying my bake products. 🙂 This recipe is so easy, you can get the kids to help you out as well! Let them have some fun in mashing the bananas, crack some eggs, and whisk the wet ingredients together.

Added some chia seeds for a little boost in health benefits. Yes, we all have heard a lot about that tiny little seed that brings about so much goodness. But that exactly is it and what are the benefits and side effects of consuming them? If you are interested in finding out more, Health Ambition has a comprehensive article that explains everything you need to know about Chia Seeds.

The banana bread makes really good to-go breakfast. Opt to use maple syrup or honey instead of sugar. Simply substitute sugar to about 1/3 cup of honey/maple syrup. 

Moist and totally delish! I love how the aroma of banana fills the house while it was baking in the oven! Here’s how to make the easy peasy banana chia cake.

First preheat your oven to 165C.
Grease your loaf pan.
Then whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and chia seeds.

Then you mash the bananas, mix in the vanilla extract/paste, sugar, buttermilk, and oil.
Mix till combined.

Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients.

Mix until just combined.

Pour batter into your loaf pan.
Use a knife to draw/ make a slit in the middle of your batter.
This will allow your bread to rise nicely and produce that pretty and uniform cracked top.
Then bake until a skewer inserted comes out clean.

Jam Filled Chia Seeds Muffins – Delishar

I have been down with a bacteria infection a week ago, that left me pretty weak. It was not a good feeling being sick. Fatigue, bodyache, coughing my lungs out, runny nose, and a fever that spiked to 41*C. Luckily there were some pockets of time where I felt a little better, with the help of fever reducer and pain killers.

Perhaps it was because I was ill that I was craving for something sweet but not junk. I’ve had plans to bake the kids a treat before I fell sick. So I took the opportunity when I felt a little more energetic to whip up a simple one bowl bake to satisfy my craving, and made breakfast for the kids at the same time.

It was also this period that Alce Nero, in partnership with Singapore Home Cooks Facebook Group, sent me a bag full of healthy organic goodness! Do visit Singapore Home Cooks Facebook Group and be inspired to make your own healthy 30 minutes organic meals!

Honestly, I’m impressed by the range of organic products they carry! They have pasta, sauces, jams, honey, condiments, and more. I feel good to be feeding my kids healthful products like these. When I saw the bottle of Mixed Berries Jam, I knew instantly that I want to bake with it. Alce Nero Organic Mixed Berries Jam contains high fruit content and has No Added Sugar or Pectin. This healthy product has no preservatives, no added sugar or pectin, and no artificial substances! I’m sold! 

The muffins are made with wholewheat flour, low sugar, low fat butter milk, and chia seeds that are good for you! The husband ate 2 at a go, and the soft fluffy muffins were gone way too quickly. Even the kids who don’t normally like Jam were in love with these muffins!
