For one loaf

6 oz. (by weight) sprouted spelt flour
2 oz. (by weight) organic, roasted Maya nut powder
1 teaspoon sea salt
3 oz. rapadura or other non-refined sweetener
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
6 oz. fresh whole milk
2 medium bananas, mashed
2 large pastured eggs
4 oz. pastured butter, melted

Combine the wet ingredients (whisked) and the dry ingredients separately, then fold the two together until just combined.

Pour batter into a buttered loaf pan, sprinkle with crushed Maya nuts (raw, soaked and dried) and bake on the middle rack of a 350 degree oven until a thin knife blade inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 40-45 minutes.

Allow to cool on a rack at least 25 minutes before slicing.

    1. I’ll bet so! Thanks!

      I’m tempted to try 80% sprouted flour with 10% each Maya nut and mesquite flour; suspect it will either be super good or really terrible :)
