Banana Bread with Spelt Flour

spelt banana bread

I have recently been tested for celiacs, but thankfully this came back negative, however, on doctors orders I have been reducing my intake of gluten.  One of the flours that my body can deal with is spelt.   As a family we love baking and the boys both adore banana bread, so here is my take on banana bread made with spelt flour.


As this is a recipe that I bake regularly with the boys, we use cups to measure it out.  This makes it super quick and simple for the boys to actually make themselves.


Banana Bread with Spelt Flour
Serves: 8
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 3 mashed bananas
  • ¼ cup of oil, however we use Flora Cuisine
  • ½ brown sugar
  • ¼ cup of caster sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup of wholemeal spelt flour
  • ½ plain flour
  • pinch of salt
  • handful og choc chips or chopped nuts (optional)
  1. Preheat your oven to 170 (fan) or 190
  2. Mash the bananas and combine them with the oil and sugars
  3. Add the salt and baking powder to the flours and mix
  4. Do not over mix, just stir until all the ingredients are combined
  5. Add chocolate chips or nuts and gently stir
  6. Cook in a greased loaf tin or a silicone loaf tin
  7. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes
  8. Remove from the oven and leave on wire tray to cool


I am always on the lookout for ways to make my baking healthier and have really enjoyed cooking with Flora Cuisine which is a blend of sunflower, linseed and rapeseed oils, has 45% less saturated fat than olive oil and is high in omega 3.

Hello Jen

Is spelt flour gluten free then? I’m trying to cut gluten out completely to help my insides and mainly buy free from stuff from Sainsburys or Tesco but this recipe sounds lovely. I tend to use Doves Farm Gluten free flours and they perform well in cakes generally!
