Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 5 tablespoons warm water
  • 2 extra ripe bananas, mashed 
  • 1 1/2 cups plant based milk (I used plain, unsweetened soy milk)
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil or melted vegan butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cup old fashioned oats (not quick cooking; use gluten free if needed)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional – see notes)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease an 8″x8″ baking dish. 
  2. Add ground flax seed and warm water to a large mixing bowl and stir. Set aside for 1-2 minutes to form a gel. 
  3. Add bananas to the large mixing bowl and mashed well with a fork. 
  4. Stir in the rest of the wet ingredients (milk, maple syrup, oil, and vanilla).
  5. Add dry ingredients to a small mixing bowl and stir to combine. Add to the large bowl with the wet ingredients and stir to combine.
  6. Stir in the chopped walnuts.
  7. Transfer to prepared baking dish and bake for 40-45  minutes or until edges are golden brown and middle is set. Allow to cool for ~8-10 minutes before cutting. 
  8. Serve with extra plant milk, sliced bananas, peanut butter, and hemp hearts (if desired).

Notes

Variations: Feel free to use chocolate chips, pecans, or nut butter in place of the walnuts.
