Protein Banana Bread

Updated: May 15





This superfood banana bread contains two very nutritious ingredients (bananas & Almond - in form of flour) that are essential for our body function, especially around this time when we all need to be extra cautious with our health.


Bananas are full of nutrition and are a great source of energy, especially for athletes and people who are looking for a good pre-workout snack. They are rich in potassium, which can help reduce the risk of stroke and heart disease, This recipe contains a good amount of bananas and makes a great snack or light choice of breakfast. Another essential ingredient that makes this recipe super nutritious is almonds.



Almonds are rich in antioxidants and vitamin E - excellent for skin. They are also a good source of potassium, zinc - helps fight bacteria and viruses in the body, and magnesium- which supports the immune system and regulate blood pressure.


I decided to top the bread off with some sunflower seeds for added nutrition, which is excellent for our skin and the immune system.
