GF Banana Chip Protein Bread

Whew. That’s a mouth full.

Literally.

This dense, protein-filled banana bread is great for on-the-go breakfasts! Just slice and freeze in separate bags for an easy, transportable snack or meal. 

GF Banana Chip Protein Bread

2 ripe bananas, mashed 

1/3 cup coconut oil

1 Happy Family Pouch (Banana, peach, mango… You can add ONE more banana instead, but I got this from HLS and really wanted to try it out!!)

1 cup organic light brown sugar
2 teaspoons bourbon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups gluten-free flour (I used Brown Rice flour) 

2 scoops of GF protein powder (I used Sun Warrior, but any kind will do)

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 rounded teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 bar of 70% dark chocolate, chopped


Preheat oven to 350. 

In a mixing bowl combine all the wet ingredients. In a separate bowl mix all dry ingredients. 

Mix together and fold in chopped dark chocolate. 

Pour in a loaf pan and place in the oven for 25-30 min. I am working with a new (well, old really) oven so be sure to check the center of your loaf with a toothpick to make sure it’s done!

Let cool on a wire rack. 

Slice and smear with cream cheese, PB or jam 🙂 YUM!
