This High-Protein Banana Bread is extra moist and very tasty! Entirely sugar-free and flourless, it contains 12 grams of protein per slice. This is the perfect post-workout treat.
Preheat oven to 325F.
Grease a banana bread pan using cooking spray.
Dry Ingredients. Stir 2 1/2 cup almond flour, 1/2 cup whey protein powder, 1 tsp baking powder, and 1 tsp xantham gum (optional) together in a large mixing bowl until well incorporated.
Wet Ingredients. Melt 1/2 cup coconut oil in the microwave, 45 to 60 seconds. In a large mixing bowl, pour the melted coconut oil then stir in 1/2 cup erythritol, mix until smooth. Crack the eggs in, one at a time, constantly stirring, until very smooth. Stir in the mashed banana, mix until smooth.
Mixing it all together. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir slowly about 6 to 8 times. Gently fold in 3/4 cup sugar-free chocolate chips (You can keep a handful to decorate the top), mix until just incorporated. Do not over-stir. Small pockets of flour in the batter are ok. Pour the batter evenly into your greased pan.
Bake for 60 to 70 minutes. Start checking the banana bread at the 50-minute mark by inserting a toothpick in the center, it is ready when it comes out clean. Check it every 3 to 5 minutes if it is your first time baking this recipe in that particular oven.
