IngredientsCombine in a large bowl:
2 c whole spelt flour (or whole wheat or barley - or a mix of flours)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp soda
1 tsp baking powder
Combine separately
3 lg very ripe bananas (about 1&1/2c) - mashed
2 eggs
*1/2 c brown sugar or sucanat
1/2 c milk (or substitute or sweet fruit juice/less sugar)
zest of a lemon or orange (optional)
2 tsp vanilla or 1 Tbsp dark rum, amaretto etc.
Lightly fold and mix wet and dry until just incorporated.
Optional: Fold in approximately:
1/2 c chopped walnuts or pecans
1/3 - 1/2 c dark chocolate pieces
1/2 c chopped dates, cranberries, blueberries......


Pour into a generously greased and dusted loaf pan - any smallish pan will work.
Bake at 350 for about 50 min - a toothpick inserted in center should come out clean.
Wait 10 minutes before removing from pan and placing on a rack to cool.
Enjoy :-)

* For sugar-free or a lower-sugar banana bread, replace the sugar with 1/3c of unsweetened fruit juice concentrate (apple, orange, white grape), agave syrup, maple syrup or honey.
