Ingredients

Unsweetened milk alternatives 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) (Of Choice)
Ground flaxseed 2 Tablespoon
Whole grain spelt flour/Whole wheat flour 2 Cup (32 tbs)
Ground cinnamon 1 Teaspoon
Ground nutmeg 1/2 Teaspoon
Baking soda 1 1/2 Teaspoon
Salt 1/4 Teaspoon
Grapeseed oil/Vegetable oil 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Vanilla extract 1 Teaspoon
Very ripe bananas 4 Medium , mashed (About 1
Nuts/Dried fruit / other add ins

Directions

1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF (175ºC) and grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.

2. In a large mixing bowl combine the milk alternative and flaxseed and set aside. In a medium-sized bowl, sift together the flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. Returning to your mixing

bowl, blend in the oil, vanilla, and bananas until well mixed. Stir in the dry ingredients by hand, being

careful not to over-mix; a few lumps are okay.

3. Gently fold in the nuts, fruit, or any other add-ins, if using. Spread the batter into your prepared loaf

pan, and bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the top is browned and resilient to the touch.

4. Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 10 to 15 minutes before removing it to a wire rack to cool

completely.

* I prefer to use a full 2 cups of banana for the deepest flavor and a very moist bread, but using 1/2 cup

less will allow the bread to rise a bit more.
