  • Chocolate protein banan bread

    Ok, had a mild baking experiment success today.
    Here's the recipe (from what I can remember, I didn't really measure anything)

    Preheat oven to 375°, grease a bread loaf pan
    1/2 C oats
    1/2 C bran flakes cereal
    1 C skim milk
    **Combine and let soak while prepping everything else

    2 Mashed bananas and enough fat free vanilla yogurt to equal 1 cup
    2 T ground flax seed & 1/4 C water (or 2 egg whites)
    (set aside)

    1 C flour
    1/2 C sugar
    1/2 C unsweetened cocoa powder
    1/2 C Chocolate Whey protein powder
    3/4 t baking powder
    1/2 t baking soda
    1/2 t salt
    (combine and stir all dry ingredients)

    combine oat/milk mixture with the banana mixture
    add to the dry ingredients and stir

    pour into bread pan (or muffin tin) and bake for about 45 minutes

    Low fat and high protein. You can add nuts as well, it would be good with chopped walnuts.


  • That sounds pretty yummy I don't let myself keep baked goods that aren't prepacked in my house I know how I am but with the protein that might be a good substitute!

    • It's actually not that bad for you. Low fat, virtually no fat. And it's not super sweet. I've never used that splenda stuff, but you could probably substitute that. The rest is all pretty good for you.


      • Actually, anything homemade is better for you than prepackaged stuff full of chemicals and preservatives and who knows what else.
