Healthy Banana Bread

Submitted by: AYRSHIREGRL93

Introduction

banana-bread.html
This is a delicious healthy banana bread that I've been making for years. The recipe is flexible, optionally sugar-free and dairy-free, & can be embellished with chocolate, nuts, and fruit. A great way to use your over-ripe bananas!

Ingredients


    Combine in a large bowl:
    2 c whole spelt flour (or whole wheat or barley - or a mix of flours)
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp soda
    1 tsp baking powder
    -
    Combine separately:
    3 lg very ripe bananas (about 1&1/2c) - mashed
    2 eggs
    *1/2 c brown sugar or sucanat
    1/2 c milk or substitute
    zest of a lemon or orange (optional)
    2 tsp vanilla or 1 Tbsp dark rum
    -
    Mix wet and dry until just incorporated.
    -
    Optional: Fold in approximately:
    1/2 c chopped walnuts or pecans
    1/3 - 1/2 c dark chocolate pieces
    1/2 c chopped dates

Directions

Pour into a generously greased and dusted loaf pan - any smallish pan will work.
Bake at 350 for about 50 min - a toothpick inserted in center should come out clean.
Wait 10 minutes before removing from pan and placing on a rack to cool.
Enjoy :-)
* For sugar-free or a lower-sugar banana bread, replace the sugar with 1/3c of unsweetened fruit juice concentrate (apple, orange, white grape), agave syrup, maple syrup or honey.
