Banana Nut Bread

Banana Nut Bread

Banana bread is one of the most basic and easy quick bread. And like most people, I grew up on it. Over the years, I’ve made many different versions. But this one is by far our family favorite and one that I have made so many times I could do it in my sleep!

There was a time when I was trying to eliminate all eggs products, so I began experimenting with egg replacers. I was pleasantly surprised that when it not only worked, but made this bread super moist and delicious!

I use spelt flour, but if you want to make this gluten-free, I’ve used half coconut flour and half chickpea flour in place of the spelt.

First start by mixing egg replacer with water and let sit about 5 minutes.

Mash bananas.

Add melted butter, yogurt and egg replacer. Beat with a hand mixer. Add sugars and bland with mixer.

Combine dry ingredients in a smaller bowl. Add to banana mixture, beat with mixer until combined. Stir in nuts.

Transfer to prepared pan. Bake 350 oven 55-60 minutes, or until wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.

I personally use parchment paper when baking most of my quick breads. Prevents over browning the bottom of the loaf, and makes removing from the pan a breeze.

Goes perfectly with mascarpone!
