Banana Protein Loaf

Haaaapppyy weekend lovely people of the interweb,

As it’s possibly the busiest shopping weekend of the year – just before the best month ever… CHRISTMAAAAS! And, it’s the whole Black Friday, Cyber Weekend malarkey; leaving the house is like being an ant at a honey rave. People everywhere. So, it’s a chilled weekend for essays, gym and a little bit of baking. I’m 19 going on 79. Seriously. Anywhoo, any excuse for cake isn’t it?! Plus, the minute I see an overripe nana, that can only mean one thing. BANANA BREAD 🙌🏼

With this recipe, I wanted something a little less carb dense, SOOO, I have replaced flour with Myprotein Soy Vanilla powder and I think this does the job fabtastically. Woohoo. Success. Just means more banana bread on the lighter side of life! YAS.

 Nutritional Info per slice

115 calories

8g carbs

4g fat

13g protein



  • 200g protein powder (I like to use vanilla or banana protein powder)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 35g melted coconut oil
  • 20g honey
  • 100ml unsweetened almond milk
  • 5 bananas (mashed)
  • Half a banana sliced for topping
  • 20g flaked almonds for topping




  1. Preheat the oven to 160 C (320 F) and grease one large loaf tin OR two small loaf tins with coconut oil. OR line with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the protein powder, cinnamon and baking powder and set aside.
  3. On the hob, melt your coconut oil and honey. Add to dry mixture along with the mashed banana and almond milk.
  5. Pour your mixture into the prepared tins. Top with the sliced banana and sliced almonds! Poppy seeds and flaxseeds would also be a fab extra.
  6. Bake for about 45 – 60 minutes, or until inserted knife comes out clean!

For a banana cake even lower in carbs:


  • You could use banana protein powder (Myprotein do a whey banana powder!) AND, replace the bananas with pumpkin or butternut squash. However, you may want to add some sweetener!


Lots of love,

Anna xoxo 💕
