Spelt banana bread
3 ripe bananas
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
Preheat the oven to 180C.
In a small bowl mash the bananas & eggs together.
In a separate bowl sift the flour & baking soda, add the salt & cinnamon.
Mix the banana mixture through the dry ingredients & add the vanilla extract & maple syrup.
Add nuts, seeds & any other goodies like berries & mix until combined.
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.
After 30mins of cooking pop a skewer in the centre. If it comes out clean its ready to eat!
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.
