Healthy Banana Bread (Sugar-Free, Fat-Free)
Prepare for your breakfast this excellent, smooth and at last but not least healthy banana bread with no sugar and no fat added. This homemade banana bread is rich in protein and dietary fiber, and on the other hand it contains less calories and a minimum amount of fat per portion (only 2 g).
It is very simple to prepare and its main ingredients are whole-wheat flour, protein powder and of course, bananas. You are even able to prepare it in just a single bowl and in a few minutes. I definitely recommend this recipe, if you haven't tried the banana bread yet, and you fancy its healthier fitness version with higher protein content.
You can prepare this bread without using the protein powder, if you want. In this case, you can replace it with whole-wheat flour. At the end, I recommend to admix cranberries and finely chopped nuts or alternatively cocoa nibs or pieces of dark chocolate into the dough. For the best result, it is ideal to use overripe bananas for this banana bread.
This banana bread is like made up for healthy breakfast for the whole family. This bread fills you up already after just a few slices. You can top it up with a high quality homemade jam, peanut butter, but stand-alone tastes totally awesome too.
