All you need is one bowl to make this sweet Banana Spelt Bread. It's vegan, packed with minerals, and perfect to eat if you follow a strict Dr. Sebi Diet!
Is Spelt healthier than wheat and white flour ?
Yes it is.
Spelt flour is considered an ancient grain believe to have been first used over 7,000 years ago (Source: 8 Surprising Benefits of Spelt) It's my favorite grain to use for baking because of its nutty texture and earthy flavor.
Spelt is a very popular staple among Alkaline/Plant Based Vegans. It does contain gluten but in lower amounts making it easier to digest than modern day hybrid wheat flour or refined white flour. Still if you have a serious gluten intolerance or Celiac disease, it's best to avoid altogether.
Why Add Sea Moss Gel?
I add sea moss gel to this recipe as it acts as a binder similar to a "flaxseed egg." You can make this without sea moss gel, but I like adding sea moss until as many recipes as possible to get the added minerals and benefits. Both Gracilaria and Chondrus Crispus Gel will work in this recipe.

What do I serve with my banana bread?
- agave nectar

- fresh berries
- alkaline homemade jams like my Blackberry Jam (which also has sea moss!)
How to Make Banana Spelt Bread
*Please read detailed and printable recipe card below for full ingredients and instructions.
Mix in One Bowl and Bake
- In a large mixing bowl, smash baby bananas and add all your wet and dry ingredients to the bowl. (Photos 1, 2, & 3)
- Mix together, adds to a baking pan, and bake until done. (Photos 4, 5, & 6)
SUBSTITUTION, COOK, AND STORAGE TIPS:
- Dense Banana Bread. Because this is a Dr. Sebi recipe, baking powder is not used making this banana bread denser instead of fluffy. If you want it fluffier, check out this Fluffy Vegan Banana Bread Recipe (not Dr. Sebi recommended).
- Use ripe bananas. Make sure your bananas are really really REALLY ripe. The more brown spots, the better. The riper the bananas, the more banana flavor you will have and the easier it will be to mash.
- Storage: Store in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 days or in the freezer for 1 month.
