Combine the flax and water and set aside to gel while you prepare the remaining ingredients.

In a small bowl, beat together banana, applesauce, yogurt and syrup vanilla extract. Whisk in flax egg and set aside.

Whisk together the dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add to the wet and then stir to thoroughly combine
