I feel like that title is a mouthful but I couldn’t think of a better name for said bread.
As I alluded to yesterday in my review of Designer Whey Protein I did a little experimenting in the kitchen over the weekend.
I wanted to make a protein bread without sacrificing flavor and making it making it seems like it was in fact bread and not a protein packed snack, if that makes any sense.
This bread isn’t a moist (cringe, I can’t believe I actually typed that word out) one which was disappointing to me because that’s the way I like my sweet breads. I think I may have baked it a minute too long or gave it too much of something. If you feel like playing around with the recipe let me know if it works out for you.
French Vanilla Protein Banana Bread
Vegetable oil cooking spray
2 cups whole wheat flour
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 scoops Designer Whey French Vanilla Protein Powder
1 cup 2% Banana Strawberry Chobani (next time I would use 1 1/2 to give it more moisture)
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 bananas mashed
1.) Heat oven to 350°. Coat a 1-lb loaf pan with cooking spray. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt, protein powder in a bowl.
2.) Combine yogurt, eggs, butter, banana and vanilla in a second bowl. Fold yogurt mixture into dry mixture; stir to combine completely. Scrape batter evenly into loaf pan. Bake until top is golden and springs back when you gently touch it, 30-35 minutes (time may vary depending on oven).
Have you ever baked with protein powder? How did it turn out?
