3 large eggs
1 and ¾ cups wholemeal self-raising flour
60g Chia seeds
½ cup linseed meal
Pinch salt


1. Heat oven to 180°C.
2. Beat the eggs and add to the mashed bananas, mix well.
3. Sift the flour, salt and cinnamon together into a large mixing bowl, add the bran left in the sieve, chia seeds, linseeds and mix together.
4. Now pour the banana mixture into the flour mixture and mix well.
5. You may need to add a splash of milk for more moisture.
6. Pour mixture into a well-greased (or line with baking paper) loaf tin and bake in the oven for 45 to 55 minutes or until done (test with a metal skewer, should come out clean).
