You must try the banana bread ASAP. It is vegan, mostly gluten-free, and contains no refined sugar. Banana breads are super easy to make “healthy” because mashed banana provides perfect sweetness & moisture.
I love this banana bread with some butter! It is also great with a bit of honey & peanut butter 🙂 Keep reading to see substitutions that work for the ingredients.

- 1/2 cup bread flour

Note: You can substitute maple syrup for honey or agave! In addition, feel free to add chopped nuts or chocolate chips to the bread.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients (barley flour, bread flour, salt, baking powder, nutmeg, allspice, baking soda, cinnamon, and ginger).
In a medium bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (mashed banana, vanilla extract, milk, maple syrup, molasses, and rice vinegar).
Add in the wet to the dry. Stir together!
Grease a 9 x 5 in. pan. Be sure to grease the sides, too.
As for the baking instructions, they are pretty specific: Bake for 33 minutes. Turn off oven, but keep the bread inside for another 10 minutes. Let cool before serving!
