Protein Bread

This bread is very light tasting and not too sweet either. I used plain unflavored LeanFit 100% whey powder and VitaFiber powder for extra fiber and protein. This snack is perfect for breakfast too with maybe some nut butter slathered on. I also have as a pre or post workout snack. The macros are great! Recipe below.

2. Mash Bananas in bowl then whisk in honey, greek yogurt, almond milk,
eggs and vanilla until well combined.

3. Mix together flour, cacao powder, sweetener, baking powder and
cinnamon. Add dry to wet ingredients and stir until no clumps left.

4. Pour into greased bundt pan and bake in preheated oven for 40-45 minutes.

5. Let cake cool and turn onto serving dish and drizzle with chocolate and fruit if desired (My chocolate drizzle is 1/4C of heated almond milk poured over 1/4C chocolate chips and stirred until melted, for a thicker ganache use 1/3C chocolate chips).

batter.

Make sure you grease your pan and dust with flour or cacao powder.
