Sugar Free Vegan Emmer Banana Bread


This refined sugar-free banana bread is very simple, quick, yet delicious, nutritious, and makes a wonderful breakfast or snack for the family. While most banana bread recipes contain sugar, dairy and eggs, this vegan variation uses none of them, but is still moist and delicious. Feel free to substitute wholewheat flour for emmer flour and almond milk for soya milk.
