The Easiest Protein-Packed Banana Bread Ever!

Sunday, 4 March 2018

A high-protein banana bread packed full of goodness, no flour needed, no bowls needed, ready to add any delicious toppings, and it makes the perfect, easy breakfast for your workday. 

Sound too good to be true right?

Nope! I found the answer guys, and it's better than I imagined. 

Sundays afternoons have always been a baking day in my family. I had some bananas going bad and really wanted to find a simple recipe for bread that wasn't packed full of sugar for once. So like always, I hit up Pinterest.

I came across this recipe and almost jumped for joy. The ingredients alone are awesome (good for you and budget-friendly.) And then I read that you just have to put it all in a blender and all I thought was no mess/dishes! Credit goes to the Baker Mama for changing my life!


3 ripe bananas
2 large eggs
2 cups rolled oats 
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup maple syrup

Bonus: Tip with chocolate or nuts for added texture and taste. 

(I didn't have any maple syrup so I just used black molasses left over from Christmas and a little vanilla essence.)

How to put it all together:

Preheat oven to 175*c or 350*F
Line a loaf tin with baking paper
Put all of the ingredients in a blender and mix well. 
Pour mix into baking tin.
Top with chocolate, nuts, or fruit if you desire.
Bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until a probe comes out clean.
Leave to cool for 10 minutes then take out of the tin and enjoy! 

It honestly tastes so good, especially with the dark chocolate on top. I will be making this every Sunday from now on so I have a healthy breakfast ready to go, or even just a protein packed snack for the afternoon. A perfect meal prep option. 

Definitely give this a go if you're a fellow lover of banana bread like me. Or you are just looking for healthier options with less ingredients. 

Do you love to bake on a Sunday too?

  1. This looks and sounds amazing Steph, this is a must try for us. We might have to try this this weekend or one night this week! We love banana bread and added protein...yes please! :) Lucy xx

  2. If you work HARD for your money (and I know you do) you don’t like to see it wasted, right?

    There’s no shortage of ways to waste your money that I am sure you are already aware of but the ONE area most people don’t realize they are wasting their money is in the food they eat.

    That’s right.

    Are you 100% certain that your body is making the most of all the food and more importantly protein you consume each day?

    Wouldn’t you want to have confirmation on this?

    There are many indicators that your body will use to tell you if the foods you are eating is being wasted or not.

    You can read up more on this topic on the following page:

    ? Make sure you are ABSORBING the foods you eat, ok?

    Protein isn’t cheap whether it’s coming from food or shakes.

    But, did you know that every day you don’t consume a very specific type of enzyme, you are actually wasting money on the protein you’re buying from food and shakes?

    No protein means no growth PERIOD

    ? How to ABSORB all your protein and stop wasting money

    Even if you are doing everything right…

    Eating clean? CHECK!

    Eating organic? CHECK!

    5-6 meals a day? DOUBLE CHECK!

    Protein shakes, vitamins and supplement minerals? CHECK MATE!

    But one of the harsh realities I’ve learned from peak performance expert Wade Lightheart is this:

    Most of the protein individuals consume ends up in one of two places.

    One is your toilet bowl.

    And the second place is in a nice layer of sludge somewhere in your digestive tract.

    So in theory, it’s a nice idea to think that if you are following the “Golden Rules” that have been laid out for you, you are on the right track.

    BUT if you can’t properly utilize those foods, all that effort adds up to one GIANT-SIZED WASTE OF MONEY AND EFFORT.

    So what’s happening and why isn’t this being talked about so much?

    The industry is SLOWLY starting to realize this harsh truth but they are still WAY behind and struggling to catch up.

    Fact is, our bodies require ENZYMES to perform at their best.

    Enzymes are responsible for everything from “thinking to blinking” which also includes energy production, cell repair and recovery and even immune boosting advantages.

    The BAD NEWS is that our bodies only have a limited enzyme-producing capacity which naturally declines as we age (your enzyme potential can drop to only 30% by the time you reach the age of 40).

    And yes, our bodies CAN produce enzymes and yes there are enzymes in the foods you eat BUT they still don’t add up to the required amount you actually need.

    This is due to many contributing factors including HOW our foods are grown or produced these days, HOW they are transported and HOW we prepare those foods.


    In other words, all cooked food is deficient in digestive enzymes, leaving very little to break down your food.
