Saturday Recipe

April Fool's Day and the beginning of the A to Z. Good luck every one.

I thought this recipe looked really delicious. I could have eaten it the minute I saw it.

Sesame Chia Banana Bread with Honey and Tahini

A moist, tasty and healthy banana bread with tahini, honey, sesame seeds and chia seeds!

1 cup (about 3) very/over-ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup tahini
2 eggs, slightly beaten
1/3 cup milk
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup rolled oats
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbs white sesame seeds
1 Tbs black sesame seeds
1 Tbs chia seeds

1. Mix the bananas, honey, tahini, eggs and milk, followed by the mixture of the flour, oats, baking soda and salt, followed by the seeds.

2. Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan and bake in a preheated 350F/180C oven until the top is lightly golden brown and a toothpick pushed into the centre comes out clean, about 60 minutes.

Servings: 10

Option: Use a mixture of all purpose flour and whole wheat flour.

Option: Add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

Option: Replace the tahini with peanut butter.

Option: Use almond milk or other milk substitute.

Note: If the top starts getting too dark before the centre is done, cover with foil.

    1. Sounds delicious to me. I will be over to check on your post for A to Z later one Hilary. Sounds interesting.

  2. Ooh that sounds lovely - I adore banana bread and there's always over ripe bananas lying around,- can't wait to see what it'll taste like with tahini. Have a good weekend Jo.

    1. Looks scrumptious too Fil. Just relaxing.

  3. Hey now, I use bananas and chia seeds together as well. And I'll toss all kinds of other seeds in as well.


    1. Yes, I can imagine all the seeds you use Ivy although most of us don't do so.

  4. That sounds delicious! I like the possible variations too. We have a big jar of tahini, and I've been looking for other ways to use it. Thanks for sharing this.

    1. I thought so too Danielle. That's the trouble with a big jar of anything you don't use a lot of isn't it?
