Protein Banana Bread

Postby bluebox451 » Thu Mar 15, 2007 11:59 am

This is a recipe from Kek over on the Sportzblitz forum. Notice there is no added fat or sugar in the recipe.

(Who doesnt love warm banana bread fresh from the oven?)

Makes 10 slices

3 ripe bananas, mashed
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup splenda
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1 + 1/2 cups wholemeal SR flour
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2/3 cup vanilla whey protein powder (if you dont have this you can just add more flour)

Blend cottage cheese until smooth then add bananas, eggs, and sugar and blend till well mixed. Transfer to large bowl. Sift flour and protein powder together into a separate bowl. Gradually blend flour mixture and walnuts into the banana mixture. if too dry to form a moist dough (this usually depends on the size and ripeness of the bananas), add 1-2 tablespoons skim milk. Spoon into a greased 10 x 20cm loaf tin. Bake at 170 (160 fan forced) for approximately 30-40mins or until cooked in the centre.

You should get 10 slices from this loaf. Watch the cooking time - ovens vary and the protein powder makes this brown quite quickly. Because there is no added fat, this will not keep long, but can be sliced, wrapped and frozen. Just defrost a slice in the microwave when you want it (about 30-40secs on high should do it) and eat it while warm.

Oh, I forgot to mention the stats (which I worked out on calorie king).
Each serve is approx. 180cals and 11.2g of protein. :D

can i use stevia instead of splenda? would that work? I know stevia is liquid...

I'm sure you probably could. I've never used it myself but I heard it is a lot sweeter so maybe use a little less. For those of you who dont care about sugar, you could probably use the real thing if you dont like the fake stuff.

I made this yesterday and I used Stevia. I have the drops, it was the first time I used them in cooking and I used 1 tsp. I didn't have any vanilla whey protien powder so I used plain soy protein powder with a teaspoon of vanilla essence.

The bread was absolutely delicious - thanks for a great recipe.

Next time, I think I will add 1 tbsp Stevia drops and double the bananas (I like it really moist)... do you think the cake will still "stick" with that much banana?
