Before you start grumbling about how these "health foods" couldn't possibly taste good, hear me out. They can be a delicious, nutritious addition to any meal, even when dealing with picky eaters. Like my husband, who seems to think that any kind of seed is the devil. Flax seeds can be "hidden" in dishes, just like veggies can. You can use them whole, or you can grind them into a fine powder. Or both! I prefer doing both for added nutrition and a little texture. And organic coconut oil makes for amazing dishes like my Coconut Fried Chicken seen here.
Also, instead of using traditional vegetable oil, I used some Carrington Farms Coconut Cooking Oil. (Don't worry...This doesn't make everything you cook taste like coconut. It's actually got a very mild, delicate flavor that is undetectable to most.)
Please note: You can really play with this recipe and customize the spices to your own personal tastes. Some prefer a basic banana bread. Others like to have a bit of spice in theirs. (I love adding some cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and allspice to mine.)Maybe you like chocolate chips? Well, you can add those, too!
Check out my recipe below. It's absolutely delicious, and is a great way to give your family the benefits of flax seed, even if they claim not to like it!
