BANANA BREAD WITH CHIA SEEDS

Happy Friday, everyone!

I was up early this morning and for once my boys slept in a little. By little, I mean they woke up at 7:15 AM instead of 6:30 AM. We are making progress in the Hiller household with this sleeping-in situation. Because I started the day in good spirits, I decided to treat my co-workers this morning by making this easy banana bread.
This is what a little time on my hands will do. Oh, and several ripe bananas played a key role.

The finished product was quite tasty and it was well received.

As for the Chia Seeds, I’ve been using the Wheat Montana – Organic Whole Black Chia Seeds, which you can find here Chia Seeds.
I hope you all have a wonderful Father’s Day weekend!
