Recipe: Banana Flax-Pudding Delight

The idea for this simple recipe was inspired by a tasty (but unhealthy) banana pie I had made many years ago but I wondered ... what healthy substitute is there to pudding?!?! I wanted something similar to pudding. As tasty as pudding. But without all the junk.

That's when the memory of a flax pudding recipe from the book Fantastic Flax came to mind and with a bit of simplifying and creativity this recipe came to be.

The flax-pudding combines beautifully with the light crust lying beneath it, the sweet bananas resting atop and the crumbly browned granola bar sprinkled about, adding the perfect crunch.

This dessert is a delight to make (because it's so easy to make) and a delight to eat (because it's delicious and it's healthy!) According to Dr. Johanna Budwig, combining flax with a dairy product creates a whole protein that our cells love and this dessert! feeds our cells just that and more!

Here's the simple recipe:

Banana Flax-Pudding Delight
(5-6 servings)


2 cups raw milk
6 Tbsps golden flax seeds
3 Tbsps raw, organic Agave or raw honey

1. Grind the 6 Tbsps of flax seeds for 2 seconds.

2. Bring the 2 cups of milk to a boil.

3. Add flax seed meal to the milk.

4. Boil flax seed-milk mixture for 30 seconds.

5. Transfer to a different bowl and allow to cool (about and hour).


1/2 cup (unsweetened) coconut flakes
1/2 cup prepared almonds (I use peeled almonds)
1/4 cup golden flax seeds
1 Tbsp extra virgin coconut oil

1. Melt coconut oil on low heat, until liquified.

2. Grind flax seeds, coconut flakes and nuts separately (or together) in a coffee grinder until very fine.

3. Add coconut oil to mixture.

4. Add more dry or wet ingredients until desired consistency is obtained.

5. Press into bottom of serving bowls.


2 bananas
Granola bar, crumbled
1 tsp butter
1 tsp raw, organic agave
pinch of cinnamon

1. Melt butter in small pan.

2. Place about 1 cup (or more) of crumbled granola bar into pan.

3. Mix agave and pinch of cinnamon into crumbled granola bar.

4. Cook on medium heat for a few minutes.

5. Set aside and allow to cool.

After all else has been prepared and the pudding has cooled:

Place the pudding mixture into mixer. Add 3 Tbsps agave. Mix on low speed for about 3 minutes.

Spoon the pudding mixture onto the crust.

Place desired amount of sliced bananas onto pudding.

Sprinkle crumble topping on top.
