Banana bread is a classic and a great way to use overripe bananas.
Instead of a traditional recipe, why not make this delicious, protein-packed, whole wheat version of the bread that’s really a dessert staple?
Here’s What You’ll Need
1 ½ scoops chocolate protein powder
½ cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon cinnamon
2 ripe bananas, mashed
2 egg whites
2 tbsp vanilla greek yogurt
⅓ cup oats
Optional: ⅓ cup chocolate chips
⅓ cup oats
2 tablespoon brown sugar
drizzling of honey
sprinkling of cinnamon
Quick and Easy Directions
Preheat oven to 350 and then mix dry bread ingredients in a medium size bowl. Add bananas, egg whites, and greek yogurt, and mix well.
Spray a bread pan with nonstick spray, then pour mixed ingredients into the pan.
In the same bowl (which should now be mostly empty), mix topping ingredients with clean hands. Be sure to sprinkle enough honey into the mix so that the topping begins to stick/clump together. Sprinkle topping over the bread mix.
Put in the oven for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out mostly clean (the topping will still be gooey, but the bread should be solid and clean).
Just remember that this banana bread is still a dessert, not really a type of bread…
