This is a recipe passed down from my Italian Grandmother, (Campobasso Italy). The smell of fresh bread wafting through the house is a warm/wonderful memory.
This recipe has a lot of fiber due to the Fiber First Cereal content (13 grams), the walnuts & the fresh blueberries make the recipe. This recipe has been slightly modified over the years :).
Note* The bread is not dry if you add the fiber as it is with most recipes, it doesn't change the flavor
It is a "no fail" recipe, it rises perfectly every time!
- ½ cup of butter
- 3 TBSP of brown sugar (heaping)
- 2 eggs
- 2 mashed bananas
- 1 tsp of vanilla
- 1 & ¼ cup of flour
- *(if you don't want the fiber or the flax/chia seeds you can substitute recipe with an extra 3/4 cup of flour in lieu of)
- ½ cup of Fiber First cereal ground fine (you can find in any President's Choice grocery) ¼ cup of flax seeds ground fine ¼ cup of chia seeds ground fine

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees, cook time 50 minutes (Insert knife or tooth pick to ensure no batter sticks to test) (If batter is not fully cooked, turn off oven and let sit in oven for extra 5 min until fully cooked) Every oven bakes differently
