Chocolate Banana Flax Seed Bread

How was your long weekend? Did you even have a long weekend? I know some of us must work on Labor Day and I had many, many, Labor Days that I had to work.

Thanks, retail jobs…

We just relaxed this weekend without any special plans. I love holiday weekends like that. I don’t like to run to picnics, parties, and other events that you just run, run, run. Then, when it’s time to go back to work, I need another weekend to rest from the holiday weekend.

When I want to bake, I usually turn to baking bread. It’s so easy to make and I can go in all different directions. I could do banana, zucchini, or even chocolate bread.

I even like to mix all those choices together.

Like today.

I felt like banana and chocolate. Those two ingredients go together so well in different recipes. My favorite is as ice cream, but since I felt like baking, it’s chocolate banana bread!

Of course, I would love to make my favorite banana bread that’s full of sugar and all that stuff that I used to eat regularly. But, not to fear, because I have a healthier recipe that’s just as yummy.

Like I would eat it if wasn’t…duh.
