Boosted Paleo Banana Bread

Who doesn’t love a good healthified banana bread?? This one checks all the boxes: it’s low in sugar, higher in protein and 100% delicious!

I’m not a big baker but when I do I want to make something that will satisfy my cravings for something sweet and carby, without the sugar crash that always came with the bakery muffins the size of my head I loved so much as a kid. This banana bread is just that – it’s gluten free and gets a protein boost from the addition of protein powder (a brand new product from my friends at New Chapter that I couldn’t be more excited about!).

I’m loving the New Chapter Plant Protein+ Original Vanilla – not only does it taste great, but it’s “unlocked” with clinically studied digestive enzymes for better absorption. These ensure proper digestion, support effective protein breakdown, prevent bloating, and boost absorption.

I can see this bread being a yummy breakfast, wholesome treat and (where I will probably enjoy it most!) an epic road trip snack.

If you make this recipe, or try out another recipe using the New Chapter Plant Protein+ I want to see it! Snap a photo and tag me @robynyoukilis on social media so I can make sure to see your posts!
