Mixing Wet and Dry Ingredients High Protein Banana Bread with Roam Protein


1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celcius, and line or grease a loaf pan (I grease with butter and sprinkle some flour in the pan). Melt your butter and mash two bananas.

2. In a large bowl, mix the wet ingredients except for the butter/coconut oil. Leave this for later!

3. In a separate bowl, sieve and whisk the dry ingredients. Then add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Don't over mix!

4. Fold in the melted and slightly cooled butter. Optional: fold in chopped walnuts or chocolate chips.

5. Pour the mixture into your loaf pan. Split your third banana down the middle and place on the top of the batter.

6. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until a knife comes out clean or with a few crumbs attached. Cool in the pan for a few minutes, then remove and transfer to a wire rack for cooling.
