Going bananas. With CHOCOLATE CHIP BANANA BREAD.

<–This might be how I feel.

<–But this is what’s really going on.

What’s more, it’s all in the safe realm of no gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, or other treacherously mind-blowingly stomach-aching ingredients for the Bubble Child-est of us.  Yahoo!

Flax seed goo has been my remedy for replacing eggs, butter, dairy, and all other forms of binding fats in baking.  The flax seeds take a minimum of 4 hours at room temperature or a maximum of one day to chill out in the fridge (oh, puns)/soak before throwing in the blender to create your magic.  And it is magic, indeed.  This bread is pretty delectable.
