Rainy saturday afternoon and a pile of brown spotty bananas can only mean one thing. Banana bread! Oh and also today is apparently the most depressing day of the year aka ‘Blue Monday’ therefore I thought it was a perfect time to post a warming happy recipe.
This recipe requires a blender or food processor and you just chuck everything in and blend away like a one pot wonder. Try it one cosy cold night this week.
PROTEIN BANANA BREAD
Serves 8 – GF SF DF* – 60 minutes
2 ripe bananas
1 cup almond meal
1/2 cup coconut flour
3 scoops Vanilla whey protein powder (could sub for almond meal)
150mls almond milk
200mls egg whites
3 Tbs honey or maple syrup or 1/4 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
pinch of cinnamon
1/4 cup cacao nibs for crunch and topping
Blend together all ingredients and pour into a baking loaf tin lined with grease paper.
Bake at 180 degrees for 45 -50 minutes until golden brown.
Leave aside to cool or just slice it hot and enjoy that steamy loaf.
Cut into slices and freeze if there are any pieces left.
