The one good thing about having too many bananas I have to come up with recipes to use them. I can only make my Coconut Cacao Banana Bread Recipe so many times.

  • Into the banana mixture, add oats, flax, baking powder, salt and spices. Mix to combine. Add Frozen blueberries and stir to distribute.
  • Bake in a 350*F oven for 40-45 minutes. The top should be nicely brown all the way across.
