Hildegard’s Spelt Flour Banana Bread

My over ripened bananas often hit the freezer where they are stored for smoothies or homemade frozen banana ice cream. As temperatures start to drop in the fall, the last thing I want is a frozen smoothie. Whipping up a nutritious batch of spelt flour banana bread is a great way to use up ripened bananas while having a nourishing snack on hand for late afternoon cravings.
