Without thinking, I bought a bunch of bananas.... then the hubster and I went away for the week. Smart, right? The kitchen smelled of bananas when I got home, and there was only one thing to do. Start baking. This recipe makes one large loaf. You can make it without the protein powder, just increase the splenda to 1 cup. Of course you could always use cane sugar instead of the splenda, but I just cannot justify the added carbs and calories.
4 ripe bananas, smashed
1/3 cup melted butter
1/2 cup splenda
1/2 cup chocolate protein powder (I used Bariatric Advantage)
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
Preheat oven to 350. Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl, and pour into a 9x5" greased loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to finish cooling before slicing and enjoying.
