Whole spelt banana bread (vegan, additional sugar free)

25. August 2021

In the meantime I have tried a lot of banana bread recipes and at the end I have ended up writing my own recipe because I didn’t find the perfect one. I have tweaked the ingredients until I found we found it perfect for us. This banana bread is very moist and sweet thanks to overripe bananas and with enough bite to it due to the almonds and whole spelt flour. It is vegan (plant based) and contains no additional sugar. It is also fast and easy to prepare.

A healthy cake

With this recipe I wanted to bake a banana bread, which one can eat without regrets. Therefore I decided to use whole spelt flour and glounr almonds with skin on them. Additionally I decided to omit any additional sugar. It is sweet enough thanks to the overripe bananas.

Perfect for leftover bananas

As soon as I have 3-4 bananas which start to get overripe I already prepare the recipe for this banana bread and bake it as soon as possible. To serve it you can drip a bit of maple sirup and place some walnuts on the top. My kids love to help to bake it and also to eat it!
