Before we begin with the ingredients, it’s important to note that this recipe for Protein Banana Bread is not only delicious but also a healthier alternative to traditional banana bread. By using protein powder, yogurt, and whole wheat flour, we’re boosting the nutritional value of this treat while still maintaining its classic taste and texture. So, let’s gather our ingredients and get ready to make some mouthwatering Protein Banana Bread!
2 1/4 cups Unbleached All Purpose Flour
2 Scoops of Unflavored Protein Powder
The more scoops you add, the more protein you get.
1/2 walnuts (optional)
1/2 dark chocolate chips (optional)
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 brown sugar packed
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup pure cane sugar
1 tbsp pure vanilla extract
1/4 cup melted butter or applesauce
1/4 cup plain Greek Yogurt
To start, heat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking pan with non-stick spray. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, butter or applesauce, yogurt, and vanilla, then mix in mashed bananas. In another bowl, combine flour, protein powder, baking soda, brown sugar, cane sugar, and cinnamon. Slowly stir the dry ingredients into the wet mixture, being careful not to overmix. Optionally, add oats to the batter or use them as a topping. Pour the batter into a 9×5 loaf pan, mini loaf pan, or muffin pan and bake for the recommended time based on the pan used, until the top is golden brown. Remember not to overmix the batter or the bread will turn out rough.
