Recipe Made Healthy: Banana Bread

Be Sociable, Share!

Here is one of my favorite modified recipes for Banana Bread!  This recipe keeps the bread super-moist and is definitely kinder on the waistline than the traditional version, subbing alternative sweetener for sugar and almond flour for all-purpose flour.  Add a few scoops of whey protein to balance the carb-to-protein ratio a bit, and voila! Definitely a great breakfast option or small mid-morning meal–perhaps with some coffee?  Hope you enjoy! ox Jill

Preheat oven 325 degrees F, PAM a large loaf pan

Bowl 1, mix:

3 egg whites
3 ripe bananas
1/2 cup erythritol or splenda
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

Bowl 2, mix:

2 scoops whey protein (I use BSN Lean Dessert in Cinnamon Roll but vanilla or unsweetened works fine too)
2 cups almond flour
1-2 tbsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp baking powder

Combine all, mix well and pour into loaf pan, bake 60 minutes or until fork comes out clean
