You really can’t ever go wrong with banana bread in my book. It’s just so darn tasty. And, it’s super easy to make as long as you have some ripe bananas. The riper the better!
I’m now in San Francisco staying with my aunt and uncle for a couple months and this is the first recipe I have made here. There were some really ripe bananas and I just got my Ascent casein protein in the mail, so I figured I had to make some healthy banana protein bread.
This was the first time I have used casein protein in a bread recipe, and it worked out awesome. It helped keep the banana bread nice and moist while also adding protein and delicious vanilla flavor. I also added some oats to it for fiber, flavor, and texture.

This banana oat protein bread has the perfect flavor of vanilla and delicious banana while also being packed with protein and fiber.
