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 ¡ª 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.
