Banana bread is a timeless way to dispose of ripe bananas, but old-school banana bread recipes are often riddled with staggering amounts of sugar and butter. This au naturel banana bread, inspired by Protein Pow's protein-baking wizardry, will taste so banana-y and delicious that you wouldn't believe it's not terrible for you.


  • 2 medium (7" to 7-7/8" long) banana
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 3 whole egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • ½ cup skim milk
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 scoop(s) vanilla whey protein powder


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Mash the bananas up really well, and whisk in the eggs and milk.
  3. Blend the rest of the dry ingredients into the mix until it takes on a batter-like consistency.
  4. Spray a loaf pan and pour in the batter.
  5. Bake the banana bread for about 35-40 minutes, or until a fork comes out clean when you stab it. One loaf makes about nine 1/4-inch slices.
  6. Optional ingredient: Nuts of your choice.
