High Protein Banana Bread

Back from a week of vacation and god bless my husband, back to a clean house! Only thing amiss was the bunch of overly ripe bananas sitting on the counter, which was screaming "banana bread" as I was scrounging around for breakfast this morning. If you follow this blog you have learned a couple things about me. I love my BSN Lean Dessert Protein powder, and while I love the paleo principles, I tweak a little to make the diet liveable, with things like Greek yogurt (dairy but so high in protein and low in fat I can totally justify it) and honey (a girl needs a little sweet). So, here is my high protein banana bread I created this morning. Turned out delish and it's packed full of protein! Gave it to the kids for breakfast and they loved it!

High Protein Banana Bread

3 ripe bananas mashed
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
1 egg
1/4 cup honey
1 tsp vanilla
Stir all ingredients together

1 cup almond flour
2 scoops whipped vanilla BSN Lean Dessert protein powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
Stir together and mix into wet ingredients
Pour in 8X8 square pan sprayed with Pam and bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until set.
(I covered with foil half way through so it didnt brown too much) Slice and serve


  1. This sounds awesome! Where do you get the protein powder?

  2. Hey Ariel - I get this protein powder at Golds Gym (you dont have to be a member to walk in and buy products). I think GNC also sells it.

  3. Steph - I loooooove this! Your blog is fantastic and so helpful. I think I'm going to try this protein powder....I'm almost out of the kind I currently use and I found this super cheap ($15.99) on a website I order vitamins from - allstarhealth.com
