Banana bread heaven! I made this banana bread just because it's the ingredients I had on hand. The banana was looking VERY ripe so I just had to do something with it. : ) It came out perfectly! I put it into mini bread loaf cups I had, but it would be perfect as banana muffins as well. It's really moist and sweet, with a little crunch because I didn't grind the almonds all the way down. You could definitely add some walnuts, raisins, or whatever else to make it even better! It was super easy to make, maybe took about five minutes to put the ingredients together! Next time I would definitely double, triple, or quadruple the recipe. Lol. I'm sure it will freeze great. I'm also going to try using more oat groats versus almonds. The oat groats I used were sprouted and then dried, but regular oat groats should work just fine.
Takes a few days to get the spelt berries ready, but it's soooo worth it! This is a nut-free version of banana bread, using sprouted grain berries as the base! YAY! You could also add some walnuts or pecans and some raisins, if you wanted to! Can't remember what real banana bread tastes like exactly, but this works great for me! The first time I made this, I didn't use the vanilla, but I think i will next time just to give it some more depth.
