I have made “healthy” banana bread a million times over and while it always taste delicious, it never tastes like it’s full fat and sugary counterpart. Until this healthy blood orange banana bread I made today. I don’t know what I did differently today, but this banana bread is extra fluffy and sweet. AND you need to make it ASAP!
Gorgeous isn’t it? I made this banana bread gluten-free by using brown rice flour (I know, I’m obsessed with it lately) and protein powder! Did I mention that this loaf was created without using any butter or sugar?? The natural sweetness from the bananas and just a teaspoon of uncut stevia did the trick. 🙂
I drizzled this loaf with a vanilla glaze easily made from vanilla protein powder, blood orange juice, water and a little coconut oil.
Man, banana bread is just the best, isn’t it? I can’t get enough. Seriously, I’ve eaten almost half of the loaf today. I’m not ashamed…
I get a lot of messages about what kind of protein I bake with and I always use the best quality protein in my recipes. I learned early into my baking career that using cheap and poor quality protein powder will result in chewy and bland food. Luckily being a food blogger I get to try a lot of products so I found the best ones on the market and I promise you one of the best protein powders (and most reasonably priced) is PEScience. They come in multiple flavors as well as vegan powders (yay!). You can get 25% OFF using code PBCHOCO on their website PEScience.
