Walnut Blueberry Banana Bread

This low fat, high fiber bread is a great snack and is packed with protein, zinc and vitamins B1, B2 and B6. Bananas are also a great source of potassium. If you are someone who suffers from occasional leg cramping – sometimes called Charley Horses – eating a diet rich in potassium can help get rid of these attacks! This bread is also a delicious and nutritious way to load up on carbs so you have the energy you need during delivery!

Ingredients
1 ripe banana mashed
3/4 cup ground flax seed
1 egg
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup buttermilk
1 TSP baking soda
1/2 TSP sea salt
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 TSP orange zest
1 cup blueberries
1/2 cup unsalted chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Oil a loaf pan and sprinkle with a little flour so that bread will not stick.

In a large bowl combine first five ingredients. In a separate bowl combine next 5 ingredients. Add dry ingredients to banana mixture and stir until completely combined.

Fold in blueberries and walnuts, pour into loaf pan and bake for 45 minutes.
