This recipe is a healthier version of banana bread that is made with coconut oil, brown sugar, and Einkorn whole wheat flour.

In my Sourdough 101 post last week, I introduced you to Einkorn flour. It’s an ancient grain that has not been hybridized and is more easily digested. In this recipe, I used Jovial Organic Einkorn Whole Wheat Flour.

The recipe is a variation of a banana bread recipe that is in Einkorn: The Cookbook by Carla Bartolucci. I added cinnamon and chopped pecans to the batter and skipped the glaze to further reduce the sugar.

This banana bread is a favorite of mine. I love the chunks of nuts and that it isn’t overly sweet. It’s wonderful for breakfast or as a dessert. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
