Delicious Banana Chocolate Chunk Spelt Muffins

I love these very simple tasty muffins, firstly because they taste great and the whole family likes them but also because the last! So often I will bake muffins and within a day they are dry and starting to taste a bit leathery. What I love about these is after a few days they are still beautiful and moist like they have just been baked that day.

 A Word on Spelt Flour

Spelt is a very tasty ancient grain that makes a good alternative to those who might be sensitive to wheat. Spelt does contain gluten but it is said to be a more digestible form of gluten.

Although from the same family as wheat, spelt  has a different genetic structure, with a higher protein content and a greater concentration of minerals and vitamins 

If you don’t have spelt for this recipe you can replace it with any flour of your choice.
