  • 2 1/4 cups bread flour I used freshly milled hard red wheat
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil you may use vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 3 bananas, very ripe
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped may use pecans


  • In a large bowl, mix the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the buttermilk, egg, oil, and honey.
  • In another bowl, mash the bananas and add the cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, and the nuts. Mix well.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until well combined.
  • Fold the banana mixture into the bread batter until mixed well.
  • Grease your baking pans well and spoon in the batter.
  • Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 20-35 minutes, depending on the size of your baking tins. Insert a toothpick into the center to check for doneness. If done, the toothpick will come out clean.
