This week I decided to make banana bread instead of a muffin. I usually make a muffin because it’s less baking time but a banana bread is definitely more moist.


1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour

1 cup spelt light flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp sea salt

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup milk with 1 tbsp lemon juice or buttermilk

3 mashed bananas

1 organic egg

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup organic unsalted room temperature butter

1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×5 baking pan. Mix together mashed bananas, milk and baking soda in a bowl and set aside.

In a small bowl whisk together flours, baking powder and sea salt.

In another bowl beat butter and brown sugar together. Mix in egg, vanilla, applesauce and banana mixture. Add flour mixture into wet mixture and stir until combined. Stir in semi-sweet chocolate chips. Bake for 60 minutes or until firm to touch. Let cool for 10 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack. Enjoy!
