Whole Wheat Banana Flax Bread March 17, 2015

Jamie says: Whew! Last month was jam-packed! What made it so busy? I moved both my apartment and office in less than 2 weeks. It was such a blessing to have my family help with my apartment move. They’re the best. Seriously. I love my new places and am feeling settled in.

So here is my 1st post-move craziness recipe: Whole Wheat Banana Flax Bread. (I have fun baking yesterday in my new kitchen before work.)

I dug through my stack of recipes and came across one which I heavily modified. I knew I was taking a risk with so many modifications in baking, but it definitely worked to my advantage…

My Whole Wheat Banana Flax Bread was amazing! It had a sugar-sweet crunchy crust and a super moist middle. The pecans added a pleasant crunch. Mmmmmm….
