"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.

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.

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