High Protein Banana Bread (GF)

I decided I wanted to free style this healthy gluten-free banana bread late last night. I even got so into my recipe creation that I came out with a battle scar. I tried to take the bread out of the oven with only one oven mitt and burned myself on the oven. Don’t try that at home kids!

The bread is healthy and is not very low calorie but you can rest assured that all ingredients in this bread are healthy and delicious. The reason for the higher calorie count is because of healthy fats coming from coconut oil and whole egg as well as a hearty dose of protein.

-2 Ripe bananas
-1 cup oat flour (put oats in food processor or blender)
-2 tbsp. coconut oil
-1 egg
-1 + 1/2 scoop True Nutrition vanilla whey
