Ingredients

Gluten free oat flour

Gluten free thick rolled oats

4 ripe bananas

Baking powder (aluminum free)

Baking soda

Cinnamon

Coconut Oil

Ground flax seed or chia seed

Coconut sugar or cane sugar

Raw walnuts

Himalayan sea salt

Utensils

Mixing bowl’s

Measuring spoons

Oven

Loaf pan mold

Preparation

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?

Directions

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.

Health Benefits

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.
