Protein Banana Bread Glory
This recipe is a MUST make for everyone who likes banana bread. I’ve made variations of it four times in the last three weeks and every time, I end up mmmm-ing like a lunatic when I taste it.
It’s the kind of banana bread that no one can tell contains protein and lacks sugar, white flour, and butter. It feels and tastes like regular banana bread! But unlike regular banana bread, this beauty is extremely nutritious. We’ve been devouring it over here! Even my little girl adores it, hehe. It’s just REALLY good banana bread! It’s 100% family friendly and perfect for anyone who likes good ol’ fashioned banana bread.
1 and 1/8 cup gluten-free oat flour
3/4 cup whey protein powder
1/2 to 3/4 cup coconut flour
1/3 cup coconut oil
2.5 medium ripe bananas
1/4 almond milk
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup date syrup
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon madagascan vanilla extract (optional)
1/2 teaspoon ground sea salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup roughly chopped pistachio nuts
1 tsp vanilla or Dulce de Leche natural flavoring (this is 100% optional but adds a great extra flavor note to the banana bread!)
1. Preheat your oven to 160 C (320 F).
2. Blend all ingredients together.
3. Bake in a bread pan (ideally a silicone one) until your knife comes out clean (around 40-45 minutes, usually no more than that).
4. Munch! 😋 Or set to cool and then wrap in foil. Store it in the fridge!
