Recipe 1: Banana & Linseed Bread with Berry Chia Jam & Chocolate Whey Hey

Whey Hey Recipe Challenge #1

I wanted to make some sort of cake/sponge to enjoy with the luxurious Chocolate Whey Hey ice cream, so made up this gluten-free ‘bread’ recipe packed full of goodness from the bananas, linseeds and fat-free yogurt. The berry ‘jam’ is SO simple to make but provides a powerful taste and can be used in anything and everything sweet. Enjoy!


For the Banana & Linseed Bread:

  • 175 ml Total Greek 0% fat
  • 50 ml almond milk
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 100 Doves Farm gluten-free flour
  • 75g stevia (natural sweetener)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp Helen’s Food Cranberry & Linseed mix

Combine flour, baking powder, linseed mix and stevia in a bowl. Whisk together the egg, milk and yogurt, then pour into the dry ingredients along with the mashed banana. Mix well, pour into a greased baking tray, then bake for 20-25 minutes at 180 degrees until golden and risen. Remove from oven, leave to cool then cut into slices.

For the Berry Chia Jam:
150g frozen mixed berries
1 tbsp stevia (or to taste)
2 tbsp chia seeds

Simply put the berries in a small pan with a dash of water, heat up, simmer until the juices run out then stir in the chia seeds. Simmer for a further few minutes (you may want to add more water as the seeds will quickly absorb liquid) then pour into a tub, leave to cool then keep in the fridge until needed.

Get tucking in! Place a slice of the Banana & Linseed Bread in the bowl (heat up if you wish!), add a dollop of the berry ‘jam’ and spoon in a tub of Chocolate Whey Hey ice cream – done!
