  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease an 8x4 inch loaf pan. Use an electric coffee grinder or food processor to grind 1/2 cup flax seed; set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat together banana, oil, sugar and eggs. In a separate bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ground flax seed and 1/4 cup whole flax seed. Gradually stir flour mixture into banana mixture. Fold in dates. Spoon batter into prepared loaf pan.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 55 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the loaf comes out clean.

Grind all the flax seed or just buy it pre-milled. You get no nutritional benefit from whole seeds, they just pass through you. I also used walnuts instead of dates, and used whole wheat flour i...

Love this recipe!! I make it about twice a week. My kids and husband love it and I like the healthy ingredients. I use 3/4 cup milled flax seed. I also use 1/4 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup bro...

I really enjoyed the bread. I used the blender to ground the flax seed, substituted 1 TBSP Stevia for the sugar, unsweetened applesauce for the oil & raisins instead of dates. I gave it 4 star...
