Well it's mid week again! I hope everyone has been having a great one so far. It's been a busy week over on my end (a teething toddler!) so I'm thankful I did some recipe creating this weekend and had this treat to keep me going all week.
Having a snack ready to go is super key. When life gets busy, you're hungry and there isn't anything made or ready to eat....you know what happens. It's a free for all. You walk in the door after work and you're immediately grazing the cupboards searching for anything. Another example is mid afternoon at work. You're hungry, there's nothing there but a vending machine full of chips, chocolate bars and more processed junk. This recipe is the perfect solution! Make the loaf, keep a few at work and some at home for when the snack attack arises.
This Peanut Butter Banana Protein Bread is amazing. I've been working to create the full recipe cookbook for the vanilla mix and this one is definitely making the cut! What could be better than the smell of fresh banana bread filing the house? I could tell you what's even better.....fresh banana bread that won't overload with you carbs, sugar or unhealthy oils. This one clocks in at a cool 25 grams per huge slice and a bonus dose of 9 grams of protein. Here's a fun comparison of just how great the nutritional information is on this recipe :)
