Banana Bread Slice

Satisfy Your Cravings With a High Protein Vegan Banana Slice

Banana bread has been a staple of recipe books since the 1930s. Unfortunately, it has over time become increasingly unhealthy and is usually served up gluten-rich, sugar-rich and soaked in butter. This is a remake of an old-time classic with vegan protein but this time with no added sugar as well as soy and egg free. While it will take you 30 minutes to make this protein-rich version, this well considered recipe allows you to make bigger batches which you can enjoy for longer. The vegan protein powder and coconut helps increase your metabolism and the banana and dates make it a good workout snack. Next time you are in a cafe that serves standard banana bread compare the after-effects and note how you feel. The difference between the high protein vegan version and the conventional banana bread should be obvious five minutes into your first bite
