It is almost summer holidays! Time for splash pads, parks, cottages, camps and summer hikes! I am always looking for high energy, healthy snacks for the kids to bring on the road and this Easy One Bowl Honey Flax Banana Bread Recipe is just the thing for food on the go.

Before heading to the cottage, I make a loaf of this one bowl banana bread just before we depart so that the kids have something to snack on during the drive. Very often, it is gone before we even arrive!


I don’t consider myself a baker. I tend to excel in the savoury dishes category, but when I do get out the flour and mixing bowls, I like to keep it simple. And while baking isn’t for everyone, this super easy one bowl banana bread is mega easy to make. I have given traditional banana bread a healthier spin with whole wheat flour, flax and replacing part of the sugar with honey.

Make it with the kids – it literally takes 10 minutes to put together!
