Howdy friends! I LOVE banana bread, and so does my husband.
My mother in law is an amazing cook and my father in law is a chef. So, of course, when they come to our home in Dallas, or we go home to Detroit, we always get the best food. Well, I can eat the "real cookin" lol for a few days, but lets be honest, I cant eat regular banana bread all of the time and keep my girlish figure ;)
When Momma Kuc stays for a few days I swear she makes loaves and loaves of amazing banana bread....any many other things. Pair that with the fact that my Husband loves to buy bananas in bulk from Costco and I always have room for banana bread.
So, I realized that I need to take my mother in laws banana bread recipe ad as they say on 'In the Kitchen with David' on QVC, make...smart swaps. So, here it is.
- 3 Ripe bananas mashed
- 1/3 cup melted butter(you can also sub coconut oil, i haven't done that ye, but I actually keep the butter here. Butter, real butter is actually good for you. Of course watching calories etc. But make sure its grass fed organic butter. This has way more CLA.
- 1 whole egg (whisked)
- 1/2 cup baking stevia in the raw
- 1 tsp vanilla ( i omit because i'm sensitive to vanilla)
- 1 tsp baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 cups Kodiak cakes high protein pancake/waffle mix
**I had to come up with a smart swap for white flour so this is perfect. Its also what makes it high protein. To traditionally add protein you would add whey protein to the ingredients, but this sometimes results in a drier texture. I'm sure you can sub oat flour as well, but again, your not going to have a high protein bread. Its worth it.
Mash bananas and then mix all of the ingredients with a fork in a large bowl. Bake for 30 min at 350 degrees in a loaf pan coated with coconut oil and your done. Its simple, its amazing and I cant wait for you to try it! Let me know how it goes. Love y'all.
