Chocolate Banana Protein Bake

I have been playing around with some of the protein bars that I make. I am tired of looking at them in the boring rectangle slices from a bread pan. This time I thought I would change up my basic recipe and make this bake look a little different!

Chocolate banana protein bake

The house smelled great and when it came out of the oven, I could hardly wait to try it out. It was so big and fluffy!

Ingredients:

2 scoops of old fashioned oats
2 scoops chocolate protein powder
1 cup unsweetened almond milk
4 egg whites
1/4 cup greek yogurt
1/2 unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
1 tbsp of cinnamon
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 sliced bananas (the riper the sweeter)

Directions:

-Preheat oven to 375*
-Mix all dry and combine with wet ingredients
-Slice bananas and layer one banana on bottom of a round pan
-Pour mixture on top, then add remaining bananas
-Bake 40-45 minutes
Calories per slice: 151
8 Slices total
These are a great breakfast or snack option, even a pre or post workout refuel.

Hope you enjoy them and please let me know what you think!

This is a way for me to share my passion for living a healthy lifestyle, share my fitness journey and to create low calorie recipes for us and my daughter Makenna who has Prader-Willi Syndrome! Description My daughter was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Prader-Willi Syndrome which in a nutshell, (but please feel free to google for more information) will cause a chronic feeling of hunger that, coupled with a metabolism that utilizes drastically fewer calories than normal, can lead to excessive eating and life-threatening obesity. The food compulsion makes for constant supervision necessary. This page is dedicated to her. She inspires me everyday to live a happy, healthy and active lifestyle. I want to create a healthy environment for her. With my passion for nutrition and fitness, I hope I can spread awareness about PWS and create healthy recipes for her to enjoy with never feeling deprived. She has given me new hope to move forward with my passion in nutrition and become a Registered Dietitian. My focus will be on childhood obesity, emphasizing in PWS. I look forward to sharing my journey with you all! ***Please note I am not a Registered Dietitian. I would classify myself as a "nutrition snob." I do all of this because I love learning about food and fitness. All the recipes posted are tired and can be adjusted to your lifestyle. ***
