Healthy Dark Chocolate Banana Bread

Healthy Dark Chocolate Banana Bread

This super easy Dark Chocolate Banana Bread is extremely moist and made using only  whole food ingredients.

I shared some photos of this banana bread on my Instagram story last week and feedback I got was absolutely overwhelming so thank you for all of your kind words. I wanted to share this delicious recipe sooner but I was out of town all week in Milwaukee, Wisconsin–which by the way has some incredible food and by food, I mean CHEESE!

 


 

This banana bread is perfect in so many ways. For starters, it’s flavored with dark chocolate and who doesn’t love chocolate?

 

There’s added protein powder to kick those macros up a notch and not to mention give it a little extra sweetness without adding refined sugar! Double bonus!

 

 

 

Pro tip: If you want your taste buds to explode from a flavor overload, put Nuts ‘N More Cocoa Hazelnut Spread on your dark chocolate banana bread slice and you will not regret it!

Healthy Deep Dish Peanut Butter S’mores Cookie Pie

Healthy Deep Dish Peanut Butter S’mores Cookie Pie

Healthy Deep Dish Peanut Butter S’mores Cookie Pie–I know, it’s a mouthful but trust me, it’s worth every single bite!!!

 

 


This cookie pie might just be the most delicious “healthy” dessert that I’ve ever made. I put “healthy” in quotations because yes, this cookie pie is made with mostly whole food ingredients, it also contains chocolate, peanut butter chips and marshmallows which aren’t harmful in moderation.

 

Speaking of moderation, once you try a piece of this pie, all moderation goes right out door!

 

 

 

Look at the height on that cookie pie! I think I might have added too much baking powder… Whatever… I’m totally into it!

 

 

 

Stuffed inside this giant cookie are lots of mini marshmallows!  🙂

 

 

And of course, I used PEScience Select Protein! Their Peanut Butter Cookie flavor is to die for and fit well in this recipe. Get 30% OFF all PEScience products by using my code PBCHOCO at checkout on their website PEScience.com
