I found the best banana bread recipe and I just had to share it!

It is originally from ‘De groene meisjes’ and written in Dutch, but because the world needs to know the recipe, I decided to translate it. So here it is! Please let me know if you make it, because it is honestly amazing!


1 cup oat flour (just blend oats to a flour consistency)
1 cup Spelt flour
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup dates
1/2 cup milk
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 big ripe bananas (or 4 small ones)
Extra: 1/4 cup of chocolate chips (or whatever else you like!)
