Protein Banana Bread

Why Bake an Ordinary Loaf When This Has 3 Times the Protein?

Of course protein powder is great in smoothies, but it's also a healthy addition to balls, breakfast bars, and pancakes. So why not use it in all your baked goods like this banana bread?

Protein powder, soy yogurt, and flaxmeal combine to give this vegan banana bread a powerful punch of nutrition. The upside is that you can't taste the difference between it and a traditional piece of banana bread whatsoever. Just ask my husband. Wait, no don't — because then he'd know the truth!

Sweet and moist on the inside, and crispy on the outside, this banana bread tastes delicious on its own, but toasted with nut butter, it'd make a warm and quick breakfast offering over 10 grams of protein. And since getting your fill of protein can help with weight loss, baking a loaf can actually help you reach your weight-loss goals. So grab some ripe bananas and a tub of protein powder and start baking.

Protein Banana Bread

Ingredients

  1. 1 tablespoon flaxmeal
  2. 3 tablespoons water
  3. 3 ripe bananas
  4. 1/2 cup vanilla soy yogurt
  5. 2/3 cup organic sugar
  6. 2 tablespoons canola oil
  7. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  8. 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  9. 1 cup white whole wheat flour
  10. 2 scoops plant-based protein powder (I used pea protein; about 1/2 a cup)
  11. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  12. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  13. 10 raw almonds, chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a 9-inch loaf pan.
  2. In a small bowl mix the flaxmeal and water together, and set aside.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, mash the bananas with a fork. Add the soy yogurt, sugar, oil, vanilla, and almond extract, and mix until combined. Add the flaxmeal and water mixture.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, protein powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir that into the banana yogurt mixture.
  5. Pour into the greased pan and top with chopped almonds.
  6. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out dry.
