The following is not your average loaf of bread. It is a great sugar-stabilisng snack that will not only keep you from reaching for the sugary treats, but will help kick your metabolism into gear. Serves 6.
4 tbsp Protein powder
2 bananas, or at least 1 heaping cup of chopped bananas
4 fresh dates, pitted and chopped (soak in warm water if they are quite dry)
4 medium organic free-range eggs
1/4 cup coconut oil, melted
1 tbsp maple syrup or raw honey
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
1/4 tsp unrefined sea salt
1/2 tsp group cinnamon
Preheat oven to 180C
In a bowl, mash the bananas with the chopped dates.
In another bowl, whisk the eggs until they are fluffy, then combine with the banana-date mash. Stir in the oil and maple syrup or honey. Add the flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Combine well.
Transfer the batter to a loaf pan, greased and lined. Flatten with a rubber spatula.
Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean.
Serve while warm, or cool and store in an air-tight container in the fridge.
