Ingredients

Makes 12 Servings


  • 4 large bananas (1 1/2 cups)
  • sugar (1 cup)
  • nondairy milk (1/4 cup)
  • vanilla extract (1 tsp.)
  • lemon juice or apple cider vinegar (1 tsp.)
  • unbleached white flour (1 cup)
  • whole wheat or spelt flour (1 cup)
  • baking soda (1 tsp.)
  • baking powder (1/2 tsp.)
  • sea salt (1/2 tsp.)
  • cinnamon (1 tsp.)
  • nutmeg (1/8 tsp)

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

  3. In a separate bowl, combine the flours, baking soda, baking powder, sea salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.



  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix together, but don't overmix.



  5. Transfer to a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan that has been lightly sprayed with nonstick spray.



  6. Bake for 1 hour (depending on your oven, it could take 10 minutes extra to feel springy on the top).
