If you’re anything like me, you love baking and the smell of hot banana bread in the oven. My Mom made banana bread my whole life growing up, but now that I’m working with a coach and considering competing in Bikini Diva, I’m being more conscious about my protein intake and what is going in to fuel my runs and muscles! But I still love food and dark chocolate is an anti-inflammatory so here we go! I tweaked Mom’s recipe to include less sugar and more protein powder, but still kept the the chocolate and walnuts!

Ingredients:

Dry

• 2 Scoops vanilla protein powder (I used Birthday Cake by 1Up Nutrition)
• 1 T Oat Flour
• 1/2 T Baking Soda
• 2 packets of Stevia
• Dark chocolate chips and walnuts
• Dash of salt

Wet

• 1 Banana (over ripe is best)
• 1 egg
• 2 egg whites
• Splash of vanilla
• Almond milk if you need more moisture

Directions:

This is to make a small loaf. If you want a larger pan, double everything!

1.) Mix wet ingredients

2.) Mix dry ingredients

3.) Spray a loaf pan with olive oil cooking spray and pre-heat the oven to 325

4.) Mix dry and wet ingredients and add to loaf pan. Top with dark chocolate chips and walnuts

5.) Bake for 15-30 minutes, check at 30 minutes, you don’t want to overcook! You should be able to put a toothpick in it and it comes out clean.

6.) Let the loaf sit and cool

ENJOY!!!! It’s so good!
