Spelt banana bread



3 ripe bananas

2 eggs

2 cups of Spelt flour

1 Tbsp Chia seeds

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp baking soda

1/4 cup maple syrup

1/2 cup Nuts or seeds - walnuts & pepitas are tasty

good pinch of salt



  1. Preheat the oven to 180C.

  2. In a small bowl mash the bananas & eggs together.

  3. In a separate bowl sift the flour & baking soda, add the salt & cinnamon.

  4. Mix the banana mixture through the dry ingredients & add the vanilla extract & maple syrup.

  5. Add nuts, seeds & any other goodies like berries & mix until combined.

  6. Pour into a lined loaf tin & pop it in the oven for 45 mins. If you want to freeze some of the bread split the mixture into 2 smaller tins at this point.

  7. After 30mins of cooking pop a skewer in the centre. If it comes out clean its ready to eat!

  8. Cool a little & slice!


This is s great recipe to use up those over squishy bananas that are still full of goodness. Freeze them when they are ripe & defrost when you are ready to make this up.

Add berries or summer fruit like peaches if they are in season for a little more excitement.
