Blackberry-Flax Banana Bread: The perfect way to use up those blackberries in the fridge, and the older bananas on the counter! Serve for breakfast along with a cup of coffee, or make it an afternoon snack!

Remember my banana bread recipe that went viral on Pinterest? On average, we probably make this about once a month in our home. My kiddos eat about a banana-a-day, but somehow we always end up with bananas that are a little too brown to eat by themselves. (It may have something to do with buying too many, so I then have an excuse to make this banana bread.)

After a trip to our local blackberry farm, as usual… I ended up with a TON of blackberries, and needed a way to use them after I had already filled the deep freeze with bags and bags of Ziploc bags.
The bananas on the counter were looking a little rough, and I knew a Blackberry-Flax Banana Bread would soon be brewing in the kitchen. Where did the “flax,” come in at? I always keep a bag of flaxseed nearby, in case I’m cooking/baking something that flax could easily be hidden in the dish.

My kiddo was recently diagnosed with epilepsy, so the “diets,” in the house had to change a bit, and we had to up our game in certain food groups. So anywhere I can fit in flaxseed… the better. Besides, who doesn’t want to feel better about eating banana bread, right?! 😉

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup buttermilk or you can combine 1/2 c. milk with 2 tsp. lemon juice & set aside to curdle
  • 3/4 cup butter softened (1 1/2 sticks)
  • 1-1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1-1/2 cup very ripe bananas mashed, which is about 3 large bananas
  • 1/2 cup mashed blackberries

  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup flaxseed I use coarsely ground flax

  • In a separate bowl. mix together the flour, baking soda, flaxseed, and salt.
  • Add the flour mixture and the buttermilk alternately to the creamed mixture, and mix on low or by hand until combined.
  • If you’re adding chocolate chips/pecans, add to mixture and hand stir to combine
  • Pour into two greased pans, or mini loaf pans.
  • If baking in two regular loaf pans, bake at 325 for 40-45 minutes. If baking in mini loaf pans, bake at 325, and begin checking after 20 minutes with a toothpick to see if it comes out clean. (Because each mini loaf size is different, like mentioned above.)
