Protein-Packed Cinnamon Banana Bread

Paleo-friendly, Gluten-free, and Oh-So-Good!

 

It’s definitely a baking kind of day here, with the temps dropping way lower than normal and the rain falling nonstop since yesterday evening. Ohhhh, and the fact that I have WAY too many overly ripe bananas and need to go to the store (but am totally avoiding leaving my house), has enticed me too…

So there was this: Protein-Packed Cinnamon Banana Bread! After pealing and smashing all my Bananas, I realized I had run out of my go-to Gluten-Free Flour too, so had to come up with a sub (and I knew that making it solely with Quinoa Flour wasn’t going to give me the taste I was looking for). Thankfully, I always have TONS of Protein Powder on hand, and knew that my @nowfoodsofficial Plant Protein Complex would fit the bill perfectly!

And it totally did! I mean the texture here was way better than expected!

But back to the dEats  {And if you want to find some of the ingredients I used, check out my Amazon Storefront. It’s all the stuff I LOVE to use every day - and at some pretty great prices too!}

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 small, very ripe Bananas
  • 4 Eggs
  • 1/4 cup Honey (Maple Syrup works here too)
  • 1/3 cup Flaxseed Meal
  • 1/3 cup Erythritol
  • 1 cup Quinoa Flour (Gluten-Free Flour works great here too, this is just what I had on-hand)
  • 1 cup @nowfoodsofficial Plant Protein Complex
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Peel the Bananas and use a large fork to smash and then stir them until they are almost liquidy in substance.
  2. Beat the Eggs into the same mixture until thoroughly combined.
  3. Next, stir in the Honey, Flaxseed Meal, and Erythritol and set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl combine the Flour, Protein, Cinnamon, Vanilla Extract, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, and Sea Salt.
  5. Pour the liquid Banana mixture over the Protein mixture, and thoroughly combine.
  6. Spray a bread pan with oil (I used a Coconut Oil spray here), and then pour the mixture into the pan.
  7. Bake on 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean. I like to cover the bread with tin foil for the last 5 minutes so it doesn’t get too dark, but that’s just preference J.
  8. Allow to cool before slicing.
  9. Eat and enjoy!
