Healthy Lemon Poppy Seed Banana Bread

Healthy Lemon Poppy Seed Banana Bread


This gluten-free, high protein banana bread is popping with lemon flavor and poppy seeds (see what I did there) and is sweetened to perfection without using refined sugar.

I have a confession to make. This is actually the first time I’ve ever made anything with poppy seeds. I usually just bake with ingredients that are already in my cabinet and poppy seeds just aren’t something I usually have hanging around. And for some reason I thought they were hard to find. This is so embarrassing but I thought you could only find them at a health food store or a special seed store or something. I WAS SO WRONG! I found these poppy seeds for $3.49 in the seasoning isle at Target!

I used PEScience Gourmet Vanilla Select Protein in this banana bread. PEScience vanilla flavor only has 1.5g of sugar per serving and tastes like ice cream! Seriously, it’s the best protein I’ve ever tried! You can get 30% OFF all PEScience products by using my affiliate code PBCHOCO on their website www.pescience.com
