Homemade Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bars

These bars are very creamy and tasty. The protein is good but I am used to whey proteins so this plant based one is a change. I like that the protein has no artificial ingredients and dyes. These bars can be a great all natural travel snack. You can pick up your own Correxiko Fit unflavored protein powder here.

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.

Healthy Banana Bread Ingredients:
-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
-1 tsp. Vanilla extract
-1 tsp. baking soda
-1 tsp. cinnamon
-3 tbsp. baking Truvia
-1 spoonful of low fat cottage cheese

Directions:
-Preheat oven to 350 °F
-Mash bananas with a potato masher or fork
-Make sure coconut oil is pretty much liquid
-Add the rest of the ingredients
-Grease loaf pan and add batter
-Bake for about 25-30 minutes until fork comes out clean
