Ingredients

Wet

  • 1 ½ cups banana puree about 3 large, ripe banans
  • cup melted butter or coconut oil
  • ½ cup granulated sugar of choice light brown, coconut or white all work
  • 3 large eggs
  • ½ cup greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Dry

  • 1 cup gluten free all purpose flour can sub regular AP flour
  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • ½ cup vanilla protein powder
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips optional

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Spray and line a 9x5 loaf pan and set aside.
  • Puree the bananas and measure out 1 1/2 cups and add to a large mixing bowl.
  • Whisk in all remaining wet ingredients until smooth.
  • Whisk in the dry ingredients, making sure to spoon and level the flours, don't scoop right from the bag.
  • Whisk until smooth.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips if using, you can also used chopped walnuts.
  • Transfer to your prepared loaf pan and top with additional chocolate chips if desired.
  • Bake for 55-65 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • Because of the nature of almond flour, you may notice the top browning before the center is done. I usually just leave as is, but you can tent the top with foil if desired.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then carefully lift out from the pan and let cool on a wire rack for at least 1 hour before slicing.
  • Slice and enjoy as is or with melted butter or nut butter.

Notes

You can use dairy free or regular greek yogurt. I do not recommend non-greek yogurt as it is much more watery.
Any protein powder you like will work, but I recommend one that is vanilla flavored and ideally stevia sweetened. I used pea protein but you can also use whey protein.
