Like I mentioned earlier, I received my shipment of Perfect Fit Protein today and I felt like doing something creative with it. Since we were out of power for a week, I definitely ate all of the banana bread I baked last weekend. It was one of the few foods I had in the house that I could eat without having to cook it somehow. This time I felt like coming up with my own recipe and adding my own touches to it. Those touches were protein and chocolate. And that’s where today’s baking creation comes in…
The recipe is below. The bread I made is gluten-free because the flour I used was Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free All Purpose flour. You could easily replace with any flour you prefer. I also used three mini loaf pans just for fun, but I believe the same recipe could be used for a full-size loaf pan.
My three mini-loafs yielded 18 slices total, making the calories roughly 70 calories per slice and 5.5 grams of protein per slice. Not bad!
I LOVE the addition of cocoa powder for the extra chocolatey taste. This bread is so good and definitely very filling because of the protein.
Let me know if you make it (you should!) and ENJOY! (Especially with a glass of cold vanilla almond milk!)
