Healthy Banana Bread

20 Oct

My mind was set on baking something extra delicious this weekend. I was thinking of something Fall related, perhaps some apple pie muffins?  However, I had a special visitor who came bearing a bag of bananas just begging to be made into banana bread. Well, twist my arm. I guess that will just have to do. :)

My special visitor was my mom! She knows very well that the way to my heart is clearly through food. So here is my banana-licious creation; moist, sweet, packed with healthy carbs and a good dose of protein!

Bbread

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups oat flour
  • 3 heaping scoops vanilla or banana flavored protein powder (30 grams per scoop) (I don’t recommend using all whey protein for baking as the result can be dry. I like casein and/or vegetarian proteins for baking)
  • 1/4 cup Stevia Baking Blend
  • 2 large ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1/3 cup applesauce
  • 3/4 cup milk (I used almond)
  • splash of egg whites (or 1 egg white)
  • 1 heaping tsp baking powder
  • 1 heaping tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prep a baking loaf pan by misting lightly with cooking spray. Combine all ingredients and mix until just mixed. Pour into loaf pan and bake for approximately 35-40 minutes. *Baking times vary greatly depending on oven and on how well done you want it. Be sure to watch carefully!

Makes 8-10 thick slices.

Yum. That is all.

Now go make this and eat whilst enjoying your weekend! Have a good one everyone!

    Moms and banana bread go so well together! I love the addition of protein powder into this bread, it is definitely a must try on my list :)
