Made with bananas (both fresh and dehydrated), whey isolate, and egg whites, this king of quick bread is packed with the protein and deliciousness of whole grain flour milled fresh from einkorn wheat berries. You can also bake this bread with other whole grain flour, for example, kamut, emmer or spelt.
Einkorn (from German Einkorn, literally "single grain") is considered to be the oldest form of cultivated wheat, dating back over 10,000 years, and completely unhybridized.
This glorious ancient grain is unique in flavour and nutritional benefits. Baked goods made with einkorn have a nice yellowish colour, which is due to its high content of lutein, a yellow pigment that has been associated with eye health and beta-carotene, an antioxidant that plays an essential role in bone growth, skin health and strengthening the immune system.
Einkorn, while not gluten-free, produces a natural gluten that is considered “gluten-safe” for some people with gluten sensitivity.

Einkorn Protein Banana Bread

adapted from Muscle Food
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Line a 25-30cm loaf pan with parchment.
  2. Sieve freshly ground einkorn flour, protein isolate, baking powder, cinnamon powder and salt.
  3. Stir together the mashed bananas, egg whites and water in another bowl, then pour into the dry mixture.
  4. Mix well and pour into the prepared loaf pan. Lightly press some dehydrated banana chips into the batter. Bake in the middle of hot oven for about 50 minutes. Insert a skewer into the centre, if it comes out clean, the bread is ready.

Another great bread recipe Angie, love that you added fresh and dehydrated banana chips here. The einkorn wheat berries sound very interesting, I've have seen other recipes using that ingredient before.

[Reply]
Nazneen Hamilton 7/7/14 15:50

This is great Angie! I've been thinking of picking up some of this Einkorn flour to see if I could use this rather than be gluten free. I don't have a severe allergy but more autoimmune issues. How does the flour behave? Does it work well with any reg flour recipe or do you have to make adjustments? I think I'm going to buy some and try it out. Thanks for this recipe, it looks wonderful!

[Reply]
Angie Schneider 7/7/14 16:01

@Nazneen Hamilton I noticed that it absorbs less water and the yeast bread made with it doesn't rise as high as the one baked with modern wheat.

[Reply]
Rebecca Subbiah 7/7/14 16:08
