Cinnamon Swirl Banana Protein Bread




INGREDIENTS

3/4 cup old-fashioned oats or oat flour
2 scoops Cellucor Cor-Performance Whey Cinnamon Swirl or vanilla protein powder with about 130 calories and 25g protein per scoop
4 ripe bananas (about 12 ounces without peel)
1/2 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt with 120-140 calories per cup (Voskos, Trader Joe's)
4 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon plus 1 tablespoon cinnamon
coconut oil spray or coconut oil, for greasing pan
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

How to make it



Add all the ingredients except the 1 tablespoon cinnamon (only add 1 teaspoon cinnamon at this point) to a blender, NutriBullet, or food processor. (If you're using plain vanilla protein powder, add 1 teaspoon additional cinnamon.) Process until smooth.

Spray a loaf pan with coconut oil. If you don't have coconut oil spray, melt a teaspoon or so of coconut oil, dip a paper towel in it, and wipe on the bottom and sides of the loaf pan. You can also use regular nonstick spray.

Pour the batter into the pan. Scoop 1/4 cup of the batter back out of the pan and place it in a small bowl. Add the remaining tablespoon cinnamon and stir well.

Dollop the cinnamon batter mixture onto the top of the regular batter. Swirl using a spatula or spoon. Be careful not to over-swirl, as you'll lose the pretty effect.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, until edges are brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean.

Allow to cool and then slice into 6 pieces.
