Okay, this bread is too good not to share! I make it weekly with my overripe bananas and even my husband eats it.
First step is to mash your extra ripe bananas into a creamy consistency, beat in egg whites, vanilla, Greek yogurt and unsweetened almond milk. Add in dry ingredients and mix well. Pour into a greased bread pan, sprinkle on chocolate chips and bake at 350 for approximately 50 minutes or until center is done.
This is low fat and contains protein and quick carbs so I recommend pre and post workout.
What you need:
3 extra rips bananas
6 egg whites
3/4 cup plain greek yogurt
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
6 tbsp. powdered peanut butter
2 scoops GNC sustained protein blend in peanut butter
120g rolled oats blended into oat flour (or use oat flour)
6-12 packets of stevia (personal preference, taste test)
Proteins are an essential part of our diet and are the building blocks of our body. I like to start my day off right with a breakfast high in protein. I am not a huge fan of meat and eggs in the morning, and have a little bit of a sweat tooth, so I make a lot of protein pancakes and protein muffins. Whenever I have an overly ripe banana sitting around and not much time I like to whip up these simple three ingredient protein pancakes. Top them with a little bit of coconut butter to get some healthy fat in your diet and you are all set to crush your day!
What you need:
1 Scoop Whey Protein Powder (Flavor of your choice)
3 egg whites (can use liquid egg whites)
75 grams of ripe banana
3 Ingredient Pancakes: Banana, Egg Whites and Protein Powder
Smash the banana until smooth
Mix in egg whites and whisk
Add protein powder and mix
Mix all ingredients until smooth
Pour batter on preheated griddle to make 3-6 thin protein pancakes and enjoy!
During the last few weeks of my competition prep I began to cut many things out of my diet and stick to the basics that I knew my body could handle and digest well. This means my meals were very repetitive because I didn’t want to chance anything not agreeing with my body and halting my progress. For breakfast this was your standard oatmeal and egg whites. I wanted to add some moisture and flavor to them so I incorporated ripe bananas and my favorite protein powders to make a super simple and quick oatmeal bake. It yields six servings so my husband and I have breakfast ready to eat on the go 3 days in a row. I have made it three times now and each time I love it more so I decided I just had to share the recipe.
