Vegan Protein Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

Vegan Protein Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

My patience level RE: slicing this scrumptious chocolate chip vegan protein banana bread = ZERO. How excited are you for this one?!

Yes, it’s a best of both worlds sitch: you get healthy banana bread & a chocolate fix BUT YOU ALSO GET EXTRA PROTEIN… how much do you love me?

Free from gluten, dairy, eggs, nuts, soy & refined sugar (& low in natural sugar), this banana bread is YOUR DREAM COME TRUE!Full of chocolatey banana-y coconut-y deliciousness, easy & simple to whip up, no mixer necessary & the best part is it’s LOADED with protein because y’all know I’m about that life! It’s also full of fibre, antioxidants, promotes healthy digestion & gut health, rich in potassium, B vitamins, magnesium & vitamin C, so you can be sure it won’t just satisfy your tastebuds but also your health!

I used millet flour but you can use any GF flour (quinoa, oat, buckwheat, brown rice). Millet is great for heart health, lowers bad cholesterol, detoxifies the body, prevents diabetes & certain types of cancer, reduces blood pressure & optimizes kidney, liver & immune system health. It contains lots of B vitamins, magnesium & antioxidants!

It’s chocolatey, rich, indulgent, comforting, crumbly on the outside & moist & chewy on the inside & so easy to make! Serve it as is or drizzle with nut butter, cinnamon & berries for breaky, snack or dessert!
