Gluten-free High Protein Banana Bread is soft, fluffy, and protein-packed! No whey or plant-based protein powder needed. No added sugar, and totally delicious!
I recently started incorporating dairy into my life to see how I would tolerate it after having odd cravings for things like cottage cheese and yogurt. Overall, I’ve found that if my body craves something, it’s best to listen to those cues! After I got sick a few months back and had to go on antibiotics for a short time, I decided to make these changes. Almost like my body was wanting ALL the probiotics. So I sought out probiotic-rich brands of yogurt and cottage cheese (Good Culture and Nancy’s are AWESOME!).
So far, I eat small amounts at a time each day, and I haven’t had any digestive issues or bloating that led me to cut out dairy to begin with. No breakouts either! It’s so cool to see how the body can adapt to things after some time away. I have had fun experimenting with different dairy-containing foods, and it’s also opened up a whole new world of recipe possibilities.
The recipe I’m sharing today is my first dairy-containing recipe in quite a long time, and it’s a real winner! A PROTEIN PACKED banana bread without any added whey or plant-based protein powders. So for those that don’t like spending money on powders, this one is for you.
High Protein Banana Bread
My banana bread recipes always seem to come about when the store is out of green bananas, and I am forced to buy a *slightly* overripe bunch of bananas. Then when I can’t eat them all before they get brown and don’t really want to freeze them, I am left with the perfect opportunity to make a new kind of banana bread for you all!
The recipe I am sharing today is super fluffy, almost cake-like, and protein-packed. No whey protein or plant-based protein powder is needed. All the protein comes from a mix of egg protein and Greek yogurt.
This high-protein banana bread is:
- high fiber
- no added sugar
….and totally delicious!
