[Recipe] 5 Ingredients Spelt & Chia Seeds Banana Bread, Vegan Friendly

4 Ingredients Spelt & Chia Seeds Banana Bread  [Vegan] | www.fussfreecooking.com

Bananas and I are like breakfast BFF! I would either add them on my porridge, in and on my pancakes and when they have turned super spotty and mushy, guess what, banana bread here I come!

I have learned several banana bread recipes in the past and I even dedicated a special heading for banana in my recipe index as well as a Pinterest board for uses of overripe bananas. Talk about being banana obsessed!

So are you ready for another banana bread recipe?

It’s a dairy and egg free recipe which means it is friendly to those who are on a vegan diet. I have used my favourite egg substitute of chia seeds gel. Generally, one egg is equivalent 1 tablespoon of chia seeds mixed with 3 tablespoons of water. Allow the chia seeds mixture sits for 15 – 20 minutes, mix it around and it will transform into gel. And this is the magic of chia seeds!

I decided not to add any white sugar, just 2 teaspoons of maple syrup which you can substitute with honey if you have some on hand. After all bananas are naturally sweet!

Also, please expect dense banana bread due to the use of spelt flour. I did not add any oil or butter for this recipe. Just 5 simple ingredients: bananas, chia seeds, spelt flour, maple syrup and baking powder or 4 ingredients if you decided to omit the maple syrup.

    Hey Emily! this looks beautiful! I’m just wondering if I can use almond meal to replace spelt flour?

    OK so I baked this yesterday and it tastes really good! Everyone has to make this. So impressed with the chia seed gel and very quick and easy to make. I didn’t add any sweetener to the mix but served it with a spoon of almond butter and drizzle of honey…heaven! thanks for the recipe!
