Protein Banana Bread

I don’t know about you, but I love banana bread; the way it smells, the way it tastes, the way it makes my heart happy.  Thanks to my step-daughters’ grandma aka Grand Mary, I received the best banana bread recipe ever.  

My challenge was to make it a bit more macro friendly.  I tried using applesauce instead of eggs to reduce fat, but it was way too mushy.  I tried increasing the protein to Bisquick ratio, but it was way too dry.  I finally came up with a recipe that tastes exactly like Grand Mary’s famous banana bread.  I’ll keep playing around with it to see if I can bring the carbs and fat down even more, but in the meantime, I make this every week.

I’m stoked to hear how you like it so please leave me a comment and tag me on Instagram and Facebook with your pictures!
