    This was a first for me: a quick bread made with whole wheat that I actually like. Go figure.

    Preheat oven to 350. Grease 4.5 x8.5″ bread pan

    2.5 C (240 g) whole wheat einkorn flour

    1 tsp baking soda

    1/2 tsp sea salt

    5 TBL (65 g) coconut oil

    3 ripe bananas (cut into .5″ slices)

    1/2 C (105 g) brown sugar

    3 large eggs

    Heat oil, bananas and sugar for 5 minutes. Let cool, then puree in blender with eggs

    Whisk dry ingredients together and hand stir liquids into flour mixture.

    Bake 45 minutes.

    Marilyn’s Notes:

    Added 1/2 tsp banana extract, 1/2 C each mini chips and walnuts

    Used 3 frozen bananas, let thaw on counter for 30 minutes, drained off most of liquid.

    Lined pan with parchment paper rather than greasing it. Lifted right out

    Recipe is on the jovial flour package.

    Oh! I just noticed that I’m supposed to glaze it with:

    1/2 C powdered sugar

    2 tsp water

    pinch cinnamon

    pinch ginger

    well…it certainly didn’t need that after I added chips.

    Einkorn may be substituted cup for cup with regular whole wheat flour in some muffin, pancake, cakes, and cookie recipes. However, sometimes the amount of liquid in the recipe needs to be reduced by roughly 15-20%. Einkorn absorbs liquids slower than modern wheat.
