2 cups whole spelt flour or whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp baking powder
3 large, very ripe bananas (approx 1-1/2 cups)- mashed
1/2 c brown sugar
1 cup low-fat yoghurt
Zest of a lemon or orange
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Optional dried fruit
2 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven to 190 degrees Celcius.
Mix wet and dry ingredients until just incorporated, then mix together thoroughly.
Pour into a generously greased and dusted loaf pan – any smallish pan will work.
Bake at 190 degrees Celcius for about 50 min – a toothpick inserted in center should come out clean.
Wait 10 minutes before removing from pan and placing on a rack to cool.
For sugar-free or a low-sugar banana bread, replace the sugar with 1/3 cup of unsweetened fruit juice concentrate (apple, orange, white grape), agave syrup, maple syrup or honey.
