Banana Nut Bread

I don’t really like ripe bananas, except when they are incorporated into something like banana bread. This recipe yields a loaf that tastes even better if you let it sit out overnight—that is, if you have the willpower.

  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup Sucanat
  • 2 eggs
  • 1¾ cups sprouted spelt or white flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup ripe bananas, mashed
  • ½ cup walnuts, chopped

Cream together butter and Sucanat; add eggs and beat well. Sift together dry ingredients; add to creamed mixture alternately with banana, blending well after each addition. Stir in nuts. Pour into a well-greased 9×5-inch loaf pan, Bake at 350ºF for 45-50 minutes or until done in the center.
