The man who eats most of my cooking loves banana bread. He thinks nothing of going to Starbucks and buying 2 pieces of their banana bread, then wolfing them down faster than I can say: “Ooooh, I’ll have a corner of that.”
Nah – he has them in his mouth and down the hatch before I even realize he’s got them.
One slice of Canadian Starbucks banana bread has 430 calories, so two pieces gives you a whopping 860 calories, or roughly 1/4-1/3 of a 6-foot tall man’s daily requirement. When you replace the calories for one meal with calories from simple carbohydrates, which is what Starbucks banana bread is, your nutrition suffers. When that happens, all sorts of things go wrong. You’re tired all time, forgetful, easily stressed, maybe even depressed. Not good. So I’m working on making a truly healthy banana bread.
Here’s my latest take on the Isagenix Banana Bread.
Mix together in a large bowl:
- 3 scoops IsaLean French Vanilla Pro
1 scoop IsaLean Black Sesame
1/2 cup muesli
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup rye flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup raw cacao nibs
Mix together in a blender, bullet, or bowl with electric mixer, or whatever tool you have.
- 2 1/2 very ripe, large bananas
1/4 cup Cultured almond milk
2 large eggs
Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the wet, mix together with a spoon or spatula just enough to wet the dry ingredients, then pour into three mini-loaf pans lined with oiled parchment paper, and bake for about 30 minutes at about 350.
Each mini loaf is 4 servings. Here’s a table comparing the macro nutrients in my banana bread with those in Starbucks.
