Banana Barley Bread

Recipe by Lille

A simple banana bread - no nuts, chocolate chips or other additions. It tastes like the banana bread from Alligator Pear, a sandwich shop in Calgary.

Very easy and quick. I like the higher percentage of barley flour as compared with some other recipes. I may try variations now that the first batch was so good. Substitute Sorghum or honey for the sugar? I've been grinding wheat and corn for some time. I'm just now trying barley. Fun in the kitchen! Thanks
