An awesomely wholesome loaf chock-full of the goodness of jowar and rajgira flours and chia seeds too. The addition of bananas gives the bread a pleasant, natural sweetness and nice mouth-feel.

This gluten-free and healthy loaf has a rustic flavour and satiating texture, which make it good to have plain, toasted or grilled.

You can also dab some butter and jam on it to make a lovely sandwich. Store this bread in an airtight container and stow it into the fridge, where it’ll stay fresh for 4-5 days.

You can also try other artisan breads like Sourdough Bread or Banana and Walnut Bread.

I made this sweet bread and relished by applying some warm butter. The sweet and salty flavor works heavenly! Also, the chia seeds added a crunch to it.
