Protein Banana Bread

Who doesn’t love a good slice of thick banana bread?Β – without the guilt

Most of us know that store bought or cafe style banana bread can be extremely high in sugar, carbs and fat. In fact, some slices can have up to 543 calories and 25g fat in 1 serve, packed full of white sugar and refined flour. My family love banana bread and it made me cringe every time they ordered it at the local cafe. For this exact reason is why I created a Healthy Gluten Free Protein Banana Bread Recipe.

The hunt for a guilt free recipe has taken some time to perfect. Using bananas as our secret weapon for sweetness, a good quality whey protein to boost our protein and almond meal to balance the bread with a subtle nuttiness flavour.

Store in the fridge in an airtight container after 2 days (if it lasts that long!)



  • 3 eggs

  • 1 egg white

  • 2 large scoops of banana protein powder

  • ΒΌ cup of melted coconut oil

  • 1 ripe banana

  • 3 heaped tablespoons almond meal

  • 3 heaped tablespoons banana flour

  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg

  • 1 teaspoon cardamom

  • 1 tablespoon gluten free baking soda

  • ΒΌ cup of dark chocolate*

  • * to make even more guilt free, opt for nuts instead


  • 1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees fan forced. Spray with coconut oil a loaf tin, or use line with baking paper

  • 2. Combine all of your wet ingredients into a food processor (banana, vanilla, coconut oil, eggs) blitz for 1 minute. Add in your dry ingredients (excluding cacao/dark choc) blitz until well combined. Melt dark choc in microwave for 1 min (be careful not to burn)

  • 3. Pour 1/2 of your bread mix into your loaf tin, then pour dark choc and marble with a knife. Add the remaining mixture in. Add half a banana for decoration on top.

  • 4. Pop in oven for 30-40 minutes or until skewer comes out clean. Transfer to a wire rack to cool for at least 5 minutes.

  • Enjoy!
