Tahini Banana Bread

It's been a long time coming. Life has been a little bit crazy. So crazy that I think I was almost feeling a little uninspired. This isn't meant to be a sob story, but it's just the truth. Sometimes we need breaks. So I took a break, and now I am back with one of my favorite recipes to date. 

I have been experimenting with sprouted white wheat flour. I love the Organic Grains brand. It's a little grainier than regular flour, but with the right combination of ingredients, it makes delicious tahini banana bread.. and lots of other delicious things too. If you do not have sprouted flour, then you can substitute regular, or whole wheat flour. In that case, you should omit the vital wheat gluten. The vital wheat gluten is only necessary for the sprouted flour.
