Chocolate & Salted Caramel Banana Bread

Despite the title…this is actually a healthy, high-protein, yummy alternative.

I love baking, however recently I haven’t been able to bake as much as I would have like to, what with uni and work keeping me busy. However, no matter how busy I am, I can always spare some time to make this treat. Also, it’s a great way to use up those sad, overripe bananas that no one likes!IMG_6777[1]

Another thing that I love about banana bread is that it will last for a good 3-4 days in an airtight container, so I know it’s always there when I need my 3pm-pick-me-up.

So here’s the recipe for this weekend treat, I hope you enjoy it just as much as I do 🙂

 Ingredients:

  • 85g of wholemeal flour
  • 50g of oats
  • 1 & 1/2 scoops of salted caramel protein powder or chocolate (6 smaller scoops for Protein Worlds powder)
  • 1/ & 1/2 tbsp of cocoa powder
  • 2 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 tbsp natural yogurt
  • 1 tsp of baking powder
  • 1 tsp of Maca powder (optional, but adds to the caramel taste)
