Lemon Blueberry Protein Bread (grain-free)

My household loves protein bread. I admit it, I even give some (in moderation) to my older daughter with PWS. She loves them and its extra protein for her!

I have been making protein bread for over a year and lately have been experimenting with coconut flour instead of using ground oats all the time. I love the texture of the ground oats and thought I would change things up.

Using coconut flour is a whole new ball game and its taken some time to adjust to it. The consistency is different. You need to use more liquids which typically are eggs, but ya need to watch out as you do not want it to eggy… After experimenting a bit, I think I have been able to come up with a great alternative!

lemon blueberry protein bread

Ingredients:
2 scoops of vanilla protein powder
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons coconut flour
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1/4 plain greek yogurt
3 egg whites
2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
2 packets Crystal Light Pure (with Truvia) or True Lemon
1 teaspoon baking powder

Directions:
Mix all dry and wet ingredients separately, then combine. You will want to stir this for a bit as the coconut flour may get a little clumpy. Let sit for about 5 minutes so everything absorbs, and stir again. Put into a very well-greased bread pan. Place into a pre-heated 350* oven. Bake for 20 minutes. Additional time may be needed. Insert a toothpick to make sure it is fully baked.

***Side note: This is a very delicate piece of protein bread. I will recommend you letting it cool in the bread pan, then slowly lifting it out. It will fall apart.***

**This bread is also a work in progress and will be tweaking it to get it to stick together a little bit more, so stay tuned for a remake.**

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. ***
