High Protein Banana Bread

This simple, yet delicious banana bread is go-to baked good for me! I eat this with breakfast, have it as a mid-morning snack, or a pre/post workout snack! It's full of fiber, healthy carbs, protein and potassium. ;-)

 Also, I have used this recipe and made muffins with this as well.. turned out just as delicious! :-)

1 ripe banana, mashed
1 cup of egg whites
1/2 cup plain non-fat greek yogurt
1tsp baking soda
1tsp baking powder
1tsp cinnamon
7-8tsp stevia
3/4 cup oat bran (or rolled oats or oat flour)
2 scoops banana (or vanilla) protein powder
1 T ground flax seed meal

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Set egg whites aside. Mix all wet ingredients, then add dry ingredients and mix well with a mixer or blender. Mix egg whites until they reach stiff peaks.Gently FOLD egg whites into batter. *Important step - do not skip or banana bread will fall in the middle.. I have learned from experience ;-)

Coat loaf pan or muffin tins with cooking spray. Or, if making muffins, use silicone or foil liners.

Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean. Time will vary depending on your oven or if you are making the bread vs muffins. :-)

Let cool before eating.

Makes 8 serving of banana bread.

Makes 12 muffins.
