The weather is getting cold and the only thing I can think of is sitting in front of fire-place and eating something simple made of butter, eggs, sugar, and flour. And when I say those four words, I mean Banana bread. YUM!

Banana bread is one of my favorite recipes, and this is the perfect time of year to start making it… On a regular basis… YEAH! It is so moist and delicious, and the secret is the melted butter. It just makes everything better. Am I right?
You can eat banana bread as a dessert, served with s little bit of custard. Or you can eat it as a breakfast – toasted and served with butter and maple syrup. Can you think of a better way to start your day?
Here are some other delicious recipes you can make with spelt flour:
Banana Bread is a Great Gift Option
You can make this banana bread as a gift. Just wrap it with a ribbon bow and print out the recipe to go with the banana bread. Trust me, everyone is going to love it as a gift. You can even give it all together with the loaf pan that you were baking it in. Isn’t that a great gift idea, or what?
Fool-Proof Banana Bread
All you need, to make this banana bread, is the ingredients, a fork to mash your banana, a bowl to mix all the ingredients and a wooden spoon to incorporate everything together. In this recipe, I am using spelt flour because it is much easier to digest, and it is higher in fiber and nutrients than regular wheat flour. I also used barley flour, to make this recipe even more on a healthy side and it has such a nice nutty flavor. But you can use the regular wheat flour instead of both spelt and barley flours. You are going to get great results no matter what flour you are using here.
In full disclosure, those are the only three types of flour that I have used to make this recipe, and it turned out great every time. You can try to make it with other types of flour, and see how it goes. If you try some other variations I would love to hear all about that in the comments below.
Now let’s stop talking and let’s make this delicious banana bread
