According to Grindstone Bakery: "Barley is a near perfect backdrop for this loaf because it allows the full flavor of bananas and nuts to come through. Barley is an ancient grain with an important role as a sustaining food in the evolution of humankind and only now are the health benefits of barley foods being widely recognized by scientists. In combination with the flavor and nutrition from the bananas and nuts this bread is one of the best examples of our tradition of 'Ancient Baking for Health and Delight.'"
