Banana Protein Bread

I have baked home made protein bars before but this weekend wanted to try a healthier option of one of the naughty foods I love! So here it is…

Banana Protein Bread

Oil to grease tin
1 cup oat flour
1 cup brown rice flour
3 scoops brown rice protein powder (like ezyprotein)
4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 cup Xylitol (natural low calorie sweetener)
¾ cup soy milk
2 eggs, lightly whisked
50g coconut oil, melted, cooled
2 large overripe medium bananas, mashed

Preheat oven to 180°C.
Brush a 11 x 21cm loaf pan with oil so it is evenly greased.
Line the base with non-stick baking paper.
Combined the flours, protein and cinnamon in a large bowl.
Stir in the Xylitol and make a well in the centre.
Add the mashed banana to the bowl.
Place the soy milk, eggs and melted coconut oil in a medium bowl, and stir until well combined.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and fold.
Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth the surface.
Bake in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Remove from oven and set aside in the pan for 5 minutes.
Turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Cut into slices, toast to serve topped with your favorite spread.

veronica - Hi Megan! Thank you for sharing this recipe! I’ve been wanting to make it ever since you posted it :) I have a question. I recently bought the SubWarrior Protein blend which is made of pea, hemp, and rice protein. Do you think it will work in this recipe? Thanks in advance!

megan - Hi Veronica,
Thank you for your question. I don’t see any reason why the protein blend wouldn’t work well as long as it is a natural flavour.
I am interested to hear about this Sun Warrior product. I have only used the rice protein before, which I love!
This recipe does have quite an earthy texture due to the flours used and the protein powder. I made it again last weekend with whey protein which resulted in a lighter texture.
Would love to hear how you get on. Enjoy, Megan

Veronica - Hi Megan! I finally got to making this bread, and it came out perfect! I used the SunWarrior Protein blend and substituted whole wheat flour for brown rice flour, and 4 egg whites for the 2 eggs. This bread is perfect for breakfast, snack, and a non-guilty dessert! Thank you for sharing!
