Whole Wheat Maple Banana Bread

Makes 1 loaf. Bake in a lightly oiled loaf pan at 350 for about 50 minutes to an hour, or when a knife comes out clean.

In a bowl, combine:

2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
In a blender, puree together:

1/2 cup dark maple syrup
2 tablespoons coconut oil
2 tablespoon chia seeds mixed with
1/4 cup of water*
3 really ripe bananas
Pour the wet into the dry and stir to combine.

If you like, add 1 to 1.5 cups or so (total) of:

dark chocolate chips
shredded coconut
sunflower or pumpkin seeds
chopped walnuts
*you can use two eggs instead of the chia seed/water mix, but the seeds do add a nice texture, with zero cholesterol or fat.
