Coconut-Banana Bread

So if you’ve been following me you know I am a sweet-aholic. And I am on a sugar free cleanse for a few weeks now. Well, more like a “don’t eat the kids cookie dough in the fridge” type of cleanse. So I’ve been finding other ways to get my sweet tooth fix in a healthier way.

This past weekend I got super domestic (not like me at all), and all betty crocker like and started to bake, and bake, and bake. I had a ton of over ripe bananas so I did make a lot of things involving bananas.

But this wasn’t the normal baking…this was healthy baking. I was experimenting with baking using coconut flour, because I really liked the macro breakdown for the flour compared to my normal wheat flour, or oat flour that I generally use. Coconut flour does have a coconut flavor, so if you like coconut you’d probably be a big fan. If you don’t you can always substitute the flour choice, but it will change the macros.

So this week, I baked so many things and I can’t wait to share them with you. But today I’m going to share the coconut banana bread that I’ve been enjoying about every morning.

I made 6 loafs, and froze all the extra’s in ziploc’s for later.

Ingredients: 

2 scoop vanilla Protein powder
1/2 c egg whites
1/2 c coconut flour
2 over ripe bananas
1 tsp baking powder
Little water

Directions:

This is easy, because I don’t cook anything if it’s not easy. Put all the ingredients into a bowl, mash up banana until it’s lump free. You might need to add a little water to the recipe to get the batter the right consistency. It should look like the consistency of a brownie batter. Slightly thick, not runny. Divide the batter evenly between 2 small loaf pans. Cook for about 20 mins at 350, or until middle is set. Let the loaves cool, and divide each pan into 3 even slices (you should have 6 slices total), each slice will be 120 calories at these macros  P 12g/ F 1.5g/ C 15g. Enjoy!

If you want to add a little more fun to it. Try it with some chocolate almond butter….it’s Delish!

*almond butter is not added into the macro count listed.
