Protein Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips

Vegan Protein Banana Bread

After managing to not post a single recipe for the entire duration of Vegan MoFo, I’ve finally got my arse into the kitchen to work on this beautiful plant-based protein banana bread. Everyone knows I love my sweet treats, but I’m really trying to cut refined sugar and reduce my reliance on wheat. So for this high-protein banana bread, I used maple syrup (which is still sugar, but I tell myself it’s not quite as bad… deluded?). I also swapped the white flour in the original recipe for spelt, just to add a bit of variety to our diets. The result was surprisingly lovely – it barely lasted 24 hours in our house. Topped with some coconut yoghurt and granola, this was the perfect post-Saturday-workout brunch!

Ingredients
  1. 125g spelt flour
  2. 100g vegan chocolate protein powder
  3. 3 tsp baking powder
  4. 2 very ripe large bananas
  5. 120ml maple syrup
  6. 3 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (or another cinnamon spice mix)
  7. 80g sunflower oil
  8. 100g chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius.
  2. Lightly oil a loaf tin and set aside.
  3. Mix together flour, protein powder and baking powder in a large bowl.
  4. Add in the banana and, using a fork, mash it into the dry ingredients until you have a smooth(ish) paste.
  5. Using the fork again (or a whisk, if you can be bothered with extra washing-up), mix in the maple syrup, spice and oil.
  6. Fold in the chocolate chips.
  7. Add the batter to a loaf tin and bake for about 45 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the bread comes out clean.
Notes
  1. This does sink a bit once it comes out of the oven, but don't worry, it will still be delicious! I'm going to play with the baking powder ratio a bit next time and will update the recipe if that solves the issue.
