Protein rich banana nut bread!

     Hey there everyone! I'm here today with your next recipe...a flour-less, no sugar added, protein packed banana nut bread! Yes, you read that right ; )...and with this version, you can eat a slice (or two) without any guilt what-so-ever ; )!  This bread has a decent amount of protein in it due to the fact that it is made with almond flour versus regular flour and as an added bonus, it is a good banana nut bread alternative for those on a low gluten/no gluten diet.  Do keep in mind, though, that because it is made with a different type of flour, it will have a slightly different texture then your typical banana nut bread....but still delicious nonetheless ; ). I find this bread (with it's decent amount of protein) to be a great post workout snack as well!


  • 1 1/4 cup almond flour (I buy mine at Whole Foods in the bins where you buy items by weight)
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (Whole Foods is the only place I have been able to find the unsweetened kind)
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease a loaf pan with nonstick spray.
  2. In one bowl, combine the dry ingredients. (the first 6 ingredients listed)
  3. In another bowl, mash the bananas and then mix in the eggs and vanilla.
  4. Combine dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix until there are no lumps.  Pour into the greased pan.
  5. Bake for 30-40 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean from the middle.
  6. Cool for at least 5 minutes before slicing.  Enjoy ; )
Let me know how it goes and leave me a comment telling me what you think ; )!
