Recipe: Strawberry Coconut Chia Seed Banana Bread

recipe: Breads and Muffins

Strawberries, coconut, chia seeds.  Three of my favorite superfoods come together in one delicious recipe.  Not to mention, this banana bread is easy to make and only 160 calories per slice.  I love making this recipe on lazy weekend mornings and having delicious banana bread around the house all week, or weekend, or as long as it lasts, which is usually not very long in my house!

I wonder if this would work with a combo of coconut and almond flour for a no grain alternative?
