I have gone bananas for this delicious sweet bread! It’s perfectly moist, flavorful from all the spices and the ripe bananas. Every bite is truly delightful. This makes an excellent to-go breakfast or snack all week long. Just pair it up with your favorite cup of tea or coffee. 😉
Careful not to eat it all while you store it! It’s dangerously delicious, and without the guilt!
1 scoop whey protein (I used Hammer’s vanilla flavor- it’s the best)
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Ground Nutmeg
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1/4 Cup Greek Yogurt
1/4 Cup Unsweetened Almond milk
1/2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Large Egg
2 Mashed Bananas
2 Tbsp Peanut Butter
2 Tbsp Chocolate Chips for Topping
2 Tbsp Nuts of Choice for Topping
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Line a loaf pan ( I used a small one) with parchment paper or simply spray with non-stick spray so the bread doesn’t stick.
In a medium bowl mix all of the dry ingredients.
Next, throw the wet ingredients into a blender ( yogurt, milk, vinegar, egg, bananas, peanut butter), or just mash them separately then incorporate them into the dry ingredients.
Mix gently until it just combines. Do not over mix 🙂
Pour the batter into the loaf pan, and sprinkle the chocolate chips, nuts, and maybe some extra oats! The approach is yours 😉
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the toothpick comes out clean and the edges are slightly golden.
Let the bread cool completely then gently take it out of the loaf pan (this should be easy with the parchment paper). If you don’t have it lined with parchment paper, you can run a knife around the edges then flip over once it completely cools! Careful because the chocolate chips might stick to the surface of your hands if not cooled completely.
Spread some nut butter on these, some greek yogurt, or just enjoy them as they are!
*These store well in the fridge for about a week or in the freezer for about two months. Wrap each slice individually in plastic wrap then defrost the night before you want to eat these! Such an easy and quick to-go breakfast or snack.
*You can also add the chocolate chips to the batter itself, but I absolutely love the goodness on top!
Today I’m sharing my no bake treats! Delicious chocolate chewy bars are topped with a peanut butter drizzle and sprinkled with chocolate chips. So much goodness is filled in one bite..and it’s hard not to eat them all at once!
It’s beginning to warm up quite a bit, and I don’t know about you but I LOVE no bake desserts when it’s hot outside. These tasty treats are perfect when they’re served cold.
Grease a 3×5 loaf pan with cooking spray or butter
Melt the butter in a medium pan and add 2 cups of the marshmallows (save 1/4 cup). Once both are melted and smooth add the cocoa powder, maple syrup and mix well, then add the cereal and remaining 1/4 cup of marshmallows.
Press the mixture into the loaf pan with a spatula and put the pan in the freezer for 10 minutes to allow it to harden or in the refrigerator for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile make the peanut topping. In a small pan -melt the coconut oil and peanut butter until smooth (this happens very quickly so keep an eye). Transfer it to a small bowl and add in the maple syrup.
Once the bars harden run a knife around the edges so it comes out easily and transfer it to a cutting board.
Drizzle the peanut topping with a spoon (it should be runny) and then top it off with chocolate chips.
Put it back in the freezer to harden for another 10 minutes or in the fridge for 20.
Cut into 4 slices and ta da!
*You can absolutely double the recipe and prepare it in a brownie pan and store them in an air tight container in the fridge for up to a week!
*You can substitute any kind of cereal here…i had Cheerios 😉 You can also substitute coconut oil or any kind of butter instead!
Today I’m sharing one of my all time favorite little healthy treats! All you need is one bowl, and a handful of pantry ingredients and you’ve got yourself the perfect healthy snack/dessert/breakfast. I eat these as a mid morning snack with my second cup of coffee to hold me over till lunch, or in the evening with a cup of tea – perfect for a rainy spring afternoon.
Did I mention you could eat these straight them out of the freezer? Perfect for those emergency cravings! These are a staple at my house…and they might be for you too.
I used to buy pumpkin spice granola from the grocery store, and while it was delicious…I thought i’d make my own this time. This is so delicious! I especially love making recipes like this where I can use it in other recipes. Granola is so versatile, healthy, and delicious. I use this in pancakes as a topping, or in a yogurt parfait as a dessert, or simply on it’s own. The parfaits I make with this are heavenly! It tastes like I’m eating bits of cookie with cream.
