Banana Bread. Comfort food. I had three leftover bananas this morning and decided that I deserved a baked delight as I near the end of my 40 day yoga challenge. I took my mum’s original recipe and substituted spelt flour for wheat flour. I veganized it by removing the egg and milk and adding applesauce. MMmmmmmm….. 3 small very ripe bananas
1/4 cup applesauce
1/4 cup grapeseed oil
1/2 cup sucanat sugar (or agave syrup)
2 tablespoons molasses
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups spelt flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.
In a large mixing bowl, mash the bananas really well. Add the sugar, applesauce, oil, and molasses, and whisk briskly to incorporate.
Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and bake for 45 to 50 minutes. The top should be lightly browned and a knife inserted through the center should come out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool
