Organic Wheat Free Banana Bread

This is my simple banana bread recipe which I have modified to make organic and wheat free. The original recipe called for 2 cups plain flour. I often substitute spelt and oat flours in place of the white flour. Sometimes I add a small amount of flax meal as well. So far, my family doesn’t miss that refined, processed white flour. Hurray!
In large mixing bowl cream:

  • 1 cup organic sugar
  • 1 stick organic butter – softened

Add and mix well:

  • 3 ripe to over ripe bananas, peeled and mashed

Add and mix well:

  • 2 eggs

In small bowl or cup blend:

  • 4 Tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

Add buttermilk and soda to sugar, butter, eggs, and banana mixture. Mix well then add:

  • 1 cup spelt flour
  • ¾ cup oat flour
  • ¼ cup ground flax meal
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Pour into 1 large or 2 small greased and floured loaf pans. Bake at 350 until top is golden brown and toothpick inserted comes out clean. I’ve also used those mini baking pans, wrapped the tiny loaves in bags, and given as gifts.

Left over bread is excellent sliced, buttered, and toasted, then topped with cream cheese or peanut butter!
