When looking for a good, healthy bread to satisfy and satiate, I believe there is nothing better than a good, healthy protein banana bread. Get ready to be surprised by how simple making protein banana bread at home really is.

But you know what is usually missing from a banana bread? Protein! But by adding a scoop of Bone Broth Protein powder, you can take this recipe to the next level. My gluten-free banana bread is a recipe that everyone (even gluten eaters!) will enjoy. For an extra treat, try it with a scoop of Greek yogurt.

This protein banana bread recipe keeps all the best parts about banana bread while adding a protein punch. We’ll use almond flour, a lower-carb alternative to all-purpose white flour. Plus, you'll enjoy the extra goodness of Bone Broth Protein powder.

Incorporating super-ripe bananas makes this protein powder bread sweet, but we’ll add maple syrup to make sure your sweet tooth is satisfied. Instead of butter, we’ll get that same silky texture with coconut milk. Now this is a protein-packed banana bread you can indulge in!

How to Make Bone Broth Protein Banana Bread

Meal Type: Snacks

Diet Type: Gluten-Free, Paleo

Servings: 8

Prep Time: 5 min

Cook Time: 50 min

Time: 55 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 4 eggs
  • 3 medium, overly ripe bananas, mashed
  • ¼ cup maple syrup (rather than honey)
  • ¼ cup full-fat, canned coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2¼ cups almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup Bone Broth Protein Vanilla

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a bowl, mix eggs, banana, maple syrup, coconut milk and vanilla.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and protein powder.
  4. Combine both mixtures, stirring until well incorporated.
  5. Place the mixture in a well-greased loaf pan and bake for 45–50 minutes.

Variations: Pour the batter into a muffin tin to make protein banana bread muffins. Add some walnuts or pecans for some added nut protein. Add zucchini for a veggie and protein-packed banana-zucchini bread. If you cannot eat almonds, almond flour can be substituted out for coconut flour, but as it is so absorbent, it is best to mix it 1:1, with something like tapioca flour.
