"My dad made this bread for years to the delight to our family. Pair it with a dish of fruit and a cup of coffee for breakfast. Yum! The flax seed meal gives a great texture without altering the flavor."

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan, or line a muffin pan with cupcake liners.
  2. In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in the eggs one at a time, followed by the bananas.
  4. Mix in the self-rising flour and flax seed meal until just incorporated; fold in the walnuts.
  5. Pour batter into the prepared pan.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 20 minutes for muffins, or 1 hour for a loaf. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes
  • If you don't have the milled flax seed, substitute 1/4 cup self-rising flour.
  • Editor's Note:
  • No self-rising flour? Make your own with all-purpose flour, baking powder, and a little salt.

I don't know what I did, but this recipe came out awful. I made muffins and they were flat (didn't rise at all), way too dense and chewy. They were almost wet looking when I took them out of th...

Great recipe and super easy. I baked mine in my bread machine using the quick breads setting and it came out beautifully. This is now my official "go to" banana bread recipe.

This was a great recipe. I cut the sugar by a 1/4 cup and added more nuts. I will make it again.

It was well liked. Did add I teaspoon of vanilla and put in cupcake liners in cupcake pan. Made I dozen cupcakes.

I used only homemade self-rising flour and swapped out the walnuts for almonds. Came out lovely and sweet, with a nice caramelized crisp top. Second time around I wanted to make a bigger loaf s...
