Recipe: Spent Grain Banana Bread

Made with two ripe bananas and a healthy amount of Spent Grain Flour, our banana bread is hearty and delicious and couldn't be easier to make. The optional addition of pecans or walnuts makes for an extra nutty crunch or you could even throw a handful of chocolate chips into the batter for a bonus sweet treat.

  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 very-ripe bananas, peeled
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sift together the flours, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together. Add the eggs and banana and stir to incorporate
  4. Add the flour mixture to the batter, in two or three parts.  Mix until well combined. Fold in the nuts.
