bananas are amazing...versatile fruits, aren't they? i adore them...they add natural sweetness...and moisture to any recipe...and when i'm looking for something low fat...low sugar...and healthy, it is the banana i turn to...
am i monkey? yes. hear me roar...
vegan whole grain banana bread cake
1 cup whole grain spelt flour
3/4 cup whole grain barley flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 to 1 tsp nutmeg
pinch of fine sea salt
3 mashed up bananas
1/2 cup of pure maple syrup
1/2 cup of water
2 tbsp sugar free applesauce
preheat oven to 350 degrees...place all dry ingredients in a bowl, mix well. add all wet ingredients in a separate bowl and whisk until incorporated. add wet ingredients to dry ingredients...mix well...pour mixture into either a lined and greased loaf pan...or if you don't have a loaf pan, like myself, improvise...and use a 8x8 round spring form cake pan...lined with parchment paper and greased...and call it a banana cake...place loaf pan or cake pan in oven and bake for 45 to 50 minutes...you will know it's ready when the the bread/cake springs away from the side of the cooking vessel...
and enjoy...smother it with coconut butter, or any nut butter...or just eat plain...
have a beautiful banana filled day.......
