Spelt Banana-Oat Muffins

I am trying new things this weekend — so for the first time I tried spelt flour and love it!  For a better understanding of what spelt flour is and where it comes from read this.  These little muffins were so moist and with only 1/4 cup honey in the entire batch a great weekend breakfast for the kiddos(along with a side of eggs for protein!).  It is a lot like whole wheat flour but has a lighter texture which made the muffins light and airy.   I bought my flour at Whole Foods in the bulk section and think I paid a little over a dollar for it, bargain!  I will definitely start using this more, I think it will be great for pancakes as well.   Do you use spelt flour?  If so leave me a comment and let me know what you use it for, I love new ideas!
