To make it even more realistic you can wrap your bread in real Mallorn leaves or printed paper leaves and then tie with raffia or string.
  • 2 to 2.5 cups flour of choice
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • ¼ cup coconut oil
  • ½ cup honey
  • Scant 2 TB chia seeds soaked in ¼ c water (wonderful & healthy egg replacer)
  • Pinch of sea salt
  1. Place your chia seeds in ¼ c water. Let sit for 5 minutes. It will form a gel.
  2. In a large bowl mash your banana and mix with honey, coconut oil, salt and the chia mixture.
  3. Carefully fold in the flour. Add a little more if needed. If will be slightly sticky but can still form into a ball. Don't over mix this as it makes the bread tough.
  4. Make a ball out of the dough and place in the fridge for an hour.
  5. Take small pieces of the dough and hand form into rectangles approximately 2"x2¼". This fits the larger size Mallorn leaf. You can make them smaller for the medium size leaf. Measure ahead of time to make sure they will fit.
  6. Place your bread on a greased baking sheet. Using a butter knife make an X about half way down into the dough.
  7. Bake at 350F for 25 minutes.
  8. Wrap your Lembas bread in your Mallorn leaves if desired.
This bread is a little on the tough side rather than soft and flakey. It is none the less delicious when eaten warm right out of the oven! Though best eaten right away you can keep it for up to three days. We suggest heating it a little before eating.
