Grain Free Banana Protein Bread

20170108_2222211
Super easy and tasty banana bread! I have been experimenting with different ingredients, and this recipe is grain free/gluten free and JUST as delicious as my other baked goods! It can also be dairy free (making it Paleo-friendly) by using an egg white or plant-based protein powder. I have only made this as a loaf but feel free to try as muffins. You may also get creative and add crushed walnuts/pecans, chocolate chips, cinnamon etc! 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1/8 cup ground golden flaxseed
  • 1 scoop protein powder (whey/casein blend)
  • 1/2 cup baking stevia
  • 1 & 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 3 egg whites
  • 150g mashed banana
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk

In a large bowl, combine all dry ingredients. In a separate smaller bowl, add all wet ingredients and mix. Add wet to dry and combine well. Careful to not over mix as the coconut flour soaks up a lot of the liquid.

Transfer to a well-sprayed baking loaf pan. Bake at 350F for 35 minutes. It will look slightly not done, but the sides should be lightly browned and a toothpick should come out clean from the center.
