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 Blood Orange Banana Bread {Gluten-Free & High Protein}

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.
