I’m always wondering what to do with those last two overripe bananas no one wants to eat and sometimes I just don’t feel for muffins!

 

 

Spelt is packed with nutrients – it contains high levels of protein and dietary fibre as well as iron, copper, potassium, vitamin B6 and folic acid. The flax is rich in omega-3 ALA and is a great source of lignans (a powerful antioxidant). Walnuts have the highest concentration of omega-3 fatty acids of all the nuts.

 

So it’s nutritious and healthy! Treat yourself a little bit and go make a banana walnut loaf!

 

Combine all dry ingredients (except walnuts)and whisk well.

 

In a separate bowl combine yogourt, sugar, flax eggs and vanilla. Mix well then add bananas and mix again.

 

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Add walnuts and mix until incorporated. Pour in greased and lined loaf pan.
