Ease quarantine induced boredom, treat yourself to guilt-free eating, and invest in your health by making nutritious alternatives of snacks and baked goods by incorporating healthy ingredients!
To add a boost of protein, collagen, and taste to a delicious classic banana bread recipe, try adding our “Ready, Set… Protein” bars to the mix. Our bars are chopped to be incorporated into the batter and loaf to infuse peanut butter, dark chocolate, and honey into the banana batter. This adds an amazing texture and bursts of extra sweet (but healthy) goodness. The bars are also laid out on the bottom to form a delicious high protein crust for the banana bread. The protein bar is only made of 5 ingredients: collagen, peanut butter, dark chocolate, rolled oats, and honey. These perfectly combine with the ingredients of many baked goods to easily add protein, flavor, texture, nutrition.
This recipe makes approximately 10 servings/slices of high protein collagen banana bread. Each serving contains 253 kcal, 17.5 grams of protein, 32.3 grams of carbohydrates, and 6.5 grams of fat. Wrap the slices to go for a convenient and easy snack that adds energy, beats hunger, and provides a good dose of minerals and vitamins. Here's full nutritional profile, generated by MyFitnessPal:
