  • 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


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease an 8"x8" baking dish. 
  • Add ground flax seed and warm water to a large mixing bowl and stir. Set aside for 1-2 minutes to form a gel. 
  • Add bananas to the large mixing bowl and mashed well with a fork. 
  • Stir in the rest of the wet ingredients (milk, maple syrup, oil, and vanilla).
  • 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.
  • Stir in the chopped walnuts.
  • 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. 
  • Serve with extra plant milk, sliced bananas, peanut butter, and hemp hearts (if desired).


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