Banana Protein Bread (Low carb)

IMG_1984

Ok I don’t know about you, but I have not met anyone who does love a warm delicious slice of banana bread! Growing up my mom made it all the time usually including oil, flour and sugar. Well this banana bread not only does not include white flour, sugar or oil, but it’s low carb and high protein to boot! Not to mention absolutely scrumptious!

Since bananas are higher in sugar than most fruit (30g per medium banana) you need very little sweetener in this recipe. Bananas are also full of fiber, potassium, manganese and vitamin B-6. The potassium in bananas have been shown to aid in leg cramping and lowers blood pressure.Manganese can aid menstrual cramping, prevent osteoporosis and has been used to treat anemia. Vitamin B-6 aids in healthy metabolism function as well as strengthens hairs, nails and promotes skin health. Fiber keeps you full in between meals and lowers cholesterol.

The national weight loss regisrty as well as several studies have found that people who consume fruit in addition to their weight loss plan not only are successful in weight loss, but keep the weight off more so than their non fruit consuming counter parts. So please do not be afraid on consuming fruit while trying to take off those unwanted pounds!

This banana bread is high in protein, which makes it perfect for breakfast or and afternoon snack. So, even though it may not be your mama’s banana bread it is hella good! Here’s the recipe:

Ingredients:

6 egg whites

2 scoops Cellucor cinnamon swirl whey protein powder

  1. Have you ever tried baking with essential oils? If not, I would suggest using Doterra essential oils they are one of the only oils I know of that you can take internally. Try it they are awesome
