Gluten free oat flour
Gluten free thick rolled oats
4 ripe bananas
Baking powder (aluminum free)
Ground flax seed or chia seed
Coconut sugar or cane sugar
Himalayan sea salt
Loaf pan mold
1 tbsp. flax seed or chia seed (I did both) with 3 tbsp. filtered water mix well
together throughout 5 min. checking to thicken the flax or chia seed by frequently
mixing. Leave for 10 min. to thicken and become like an “egg” replacer in the recipe.
Who says you can’t bake 100% cruelty free?
Start by preheating oven to 350F˚. Follow by getting a large bowl to mix all
the ingredients together. Next, add 1 cup of gluten free oats, 3 cups gluten free oat flour,
1 ½ tsp. aluminum free baking powder, ½ heaping tsp. baking soda, and 1/4 tsp.
Himalayan salt. Grab a bowl to smash the bananas, make sure the bananas are ripe and
smash them with a fork or smasher. Add the cinnamon (a lot), 7 tbsp. coconut sugar or
cane sugar and incorporate that well in together with the bananas until no lumps are left.
Next add the flax “egg” into the mixing bowl, along with 3 tbsp. coconut oil, 1/3 cup
almond milk or any non-dairy milk, crushed walnuts, and a dash of cinnamon. Mix all
ingredients well together at this point combing everything together leaving no flower left
unmixed. Pour mix into a loaf pan mold and fill up a little moor then half ways (Add
some coconut sugar on top to crisp up I added 1 tbsp. vegan mini chocolate chips on
top that’s completely optional). Put into oven at 350F˚ for 1 hr. + 10 min. When
finished bring out and let cool for 15-20 min. and in-joy this delicious vegan, gluten free,
soy-free, and guilt-free banana bread.
Bananas are extremely good for you and your health for many reasons. For one,
scientist believe that bananas were the first fruit on Earth. Bananas are grown in
over 107 countries and are among the most consumed fruits in the world.
Bananas are also good for lowering cardiovascular dis-ease including high blood
pressure, high cholesterol, and asthma. The nutrients like fiber, potassium,
vitamin B6, and C found in bananas promote a healthy heart. The daily intake of
fiber for an adult is 4700 mg and less than 2% of US adults meet those daily
intakes. People are not eating enough fruit throughout the day causing them to
feel hungry. Studies show that people with higher intakes of potassium have a
49% lower risk of ischemic heart dis-ease. Bananas can also prevent cancer cells
from forming by destroying the formation of free radicals because of the high
levels of potassium. Bananas are also good for diabetes, treating diarrhea,
preserving memory, and boosting mood (tryptophan amino acid helps preserve
memory and boost mood. As you can tell bananas are really good for your health
and should be incorporated into our daily lifestyles.
Everyone knows oats are full of fiber, great for digestion, and lowering high
cholesterol, but oats do more for your health than you may know. Studies suggest,
oats are great source for reducing cardiovascular disease because of this special
antioxidant found in oats called avenanthramides. This antioxidant was found to
reduce free radicals from damaging LDL cholesterol levels, thus preventing
cardiovascular disease a study suggest from Tufts University and published in The
Journal of Nutrition. Oats along with other whole grains have been found to lower
type 2 diabetes. Also, fibers from whole grains and fruit have been found to
protect against breast cancer. Oats can also protect against childhood asthma,
cancer, and enhance immune system. Oats are a great source of phytonutrients for
being a whole grain and not a fruit. All these reasons are being why oats are a
healthy whole grain.
