DifficultyBeginnerPrep Time20 minsCook Time3 hrs 10 minsTotal Time3 hrs 30 mins
 ¾ cup Bread Flour
 ¼ cup Whole Wheat Flour
 2 tbsp Oats
 ¾ tsp Chia Seeds
 ¾ tsp Flaxseed
 ¾ tsp Yeast (rapid rise)**see method below if using active yeast instead
 ¼ tsp Sugar
 Pinch of Salt
 1 Piece of Banana (ripe)
 ¼ cup Skim Milk
 ½ tsp Cinnamon Powder
 ¼ cup Water
 Canola Cooking Oil Spray

In a microwave-safe cup, warm the milk for 25 seconds (to lukewarm).


In a medium-sized bowl, sieve together whole wheat flour, and bread flour, and add all the dry ingredients. Set aside.


Smash the banana in a small bowl and mix it with the milk.


Combine banana and flour mixtures, and knead well like the chapati dough. If need be, add some water.


Now cover the bowl and keep it in a warm place for at least 1-2 hours or until the dough rises to double its size. This will be the first proofing.


Once the dough is doubled in size, uncover the bowl and knead again. Divide the dough into four parts and shape them into small rolls or loaves.


Spray the baking tray with cooking oil spray and place the rolls 2 inches apart. Cover the tray and let it sit for another 30 minutes or until the dough rises to almost double its size. This will be the second proofing.


Once the dough is doubled in size for the second time, put the tray in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until the dough is golden brown and fully baked.

Method for active yeast (if you are not using rapid rise or instant yeast)

Mix yeast and sugar with the milk and let it sit for 5-10 minutes or until the yeast is fully bloomed (if the yeast does not bloom that means that the yeast is not good and the bread won’t rise, in this case, you should not continue with the recipe).
