For this month, we look at a new recipe you will absolutely love. Our Whey-Pro 5 Banana Nut Protein Bread is one of the best tasting banana bread recipes you will make. It’s high in protein and is very filling too. It will leave your sweet tooth begging for more!
Here is the recipe:
• 90g Rolled Oats (1.25 cups) turned into Oat Flour (90g)
• 3 Teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
• 180g Protein Powder (Vanilla or Banana)
• ½ Cup Sweetener
• 2oz Nuts (Pecan, Walnut, Almond, etc or don’t use nuts)
• 1 ½ Teaspoons Baking Powder
• 3 Teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
• ½ Teaspoon Baking Soda
• 2 Large Egg Whites
• 4oz Unsweetened Apple Sauce
• 3 Medium Bananas
• ½ Cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk (or milk substitute)
For the 90g Rolled Oats, take the 90g of rolled oats and blend then in a blender or food processor until they become a fine oat flour.
For the sweetener, there are a variety of sweeteners you can pick from. I used Truvia baking blend, which ½ cup of Truvia equals the same sweetness of sugar.
Mix your dry ingredients in one bowl and your wet ingredients in another bowl. Use a mixer/blender/whisk to mix together the wet ingredients. Slowly add in the dry ingredients. Spray a 9” bread dish with non-stick cooking spray. If you want to add any toppings, you can. I added some walnuts on top of the banana nut bread, then throw it in the oven on 350 for around 35:00-40:00. Let cool. Cut into 8 pieces and devour!
Tips: Use fat-free whip cream/cool whip/cream cheese/peanut butter/fruit to top it
Add in chocolate/peanut butter chips or anything else to the recipe you like.
Be sure not to overcook it!
