FitMixer Protein Banana Bread (+ Giveaway Winner)

Hey friends!

How’s it going?? I am GREAT. This week is rocking already:

  • We (went back to Ikea) & got some Ikea furniture for our bedroom & living room. (finally!)
  • I am practicing choreo like crazy for the BodyPUMP 83 launch on Saturday! <–I am launching it all by myself, so I have to know the whole thing by Sat. (Love it, yes, but that’s tough.)
  • We found some stuff in storage that I had been missing, and now it’s out.
  • I ate a turkey/cheese/spinach panini for lunch yesterday. I’ve missed those things & MAN that was good!
  • I decorated our table for Fall.

YUMM.

{Just ignore the empty shelves nearby. That’s being worked on this week.}

It’s the little things, friends. :)

I did a little experimenting in my (new!) kitchen last week, and ohhhhh boy it turned out delicious.

FitMixer Protein Banana Bread

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup almond milk
  • 4 tsp lemon juice (I used 2 drops of this lemon oil)
  • 2 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 stevia packets
  • 1 heaping scoop FitMixer Vanilla Milkshake Protein powder
  • 3 Tb cinnamon/1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup applesauce
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (room temp/slightly heated is best, because it mixes better)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 Tb vanilla
  • 5 mashed bananas (I used ones that were frozen)

Directions

  1. Mix lemon juice/almond milk together in small bowl & let it stand.
  2. In another larger bowl, mix dry ingredients together.
  3. Mash bananas in a bowl with 2 Tb cinnamon.
  4. Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients & add the wet. Finally pouring the lemon juice/milk in.
  5. Mix until dry is mixed into wet.
  6. Pour into baking pans (2 large loaf pans) & bake!

–Bake at 360 degrees for 55 minutes (or until toothpick comes out clean!)–

{bananas/cinnamon & dry}

{almond milk+lemon & bananas/cinnamon}

{the dry w/well full of wet}

{adding in the milk/lemon to dry/wet}

Yummy, HIGH protein, whole wheat bread. BRING it on.

EAT and enjoy this, topped with whatever your heart desires. (You can also make a loaf with chocolate chips. As we did. Also tasty!)

My heart desires? Salted almond butter with a side of almond milk. Mmmmmm!

    cute table too.

  2. caroline says:

    I love your table! and decorations! So cute!!

  3. Always love your breads! Will have to give this one a try, too! And love your fall decorations! I never decorate haha

  4. I usually sub in Greek yogurt for the oil, actually. It makes breads and baked goods really moist plus adds some protein and calcium. Your bread looks super tasty and I love your table too! Good luck practicing for the Body Pump launch, I can’t wait to try 83!

  5. Yum! Looks good! I would’ve never thought to add lemon juice though! I almost always top my banana bread with peanut butter or almond butter!

  6. Breanne says:

    I love your table!!

  7. Love this idea! I love high protein snacks, and I love banana bread so clearly this is a fabulous idea. Lately I’ve been using coconut oil in my baking and it’s been working great!

  8. Oh yum! That banana bread looks awesome! I love all the almond butter slathered on that piece. My type of bread!! Clearly I top my banana bread in the same fashion.
    And I’m a coconut oil lover. I use it in everything!
    I’m a little obsessed with your Fall decorations. I’m breaking mine out today and can’t wait.

  9. AH I love your fall decor! And the bread looks so yum!

  10. Looks incredible!! thank you for this recipe.. on the hunt for some “breads” and this one seems like one I can handle.. we have a lot of th same kitchen stuff, same mixing bowls, ha.. love that big oxo grips white one!

  11. Now I’m nervous for 83! I hope I survive ;)

    The bread looks delicious. I love the idea to use salted almond butter on top! mmm!
