Banana Pecan Bread (Whole Grain, Dairy-Free)
This Whole Grain Banana Pecan Bread is made with spelt flour and is just as good as your usual banana bread recipe! Feel free to use walnuts to replace the pecans! It’s also dairy-free!
I adjusted this recipe and used spelt flour, so it is whole grain. I want to eat healthier, but I am not willing to give up desserts.
Or desserts that are pretending to be breakfast, like this Banana Pecan Bread!
Sometimes while baking, I opt for coconut oil to get rid of hydrogenated oils.
Healthy fats are “good for you” so I stick with butter for some recipes. Sometimes butter just can’t be replaced.
Virgin coconut oil is usually best, but there are some brands of coconut oil where the refined coconut oil isn’t hydrogenated and is okay to eat.
The lessened coconut flavor is great because sometimes the virgin coconut oil is too much coconut flavor for me, especially when you are trying to develop a recipe with a specific taste in mind.

The version you are reading today is very different. I hope you enjoy the new updated (and healthier) recipe!
