If protein and antioxidants had a face it would be the title above. Peanut flour rules my kitchen with an
iron protein fist these days and I don’t hate it!
Yesterday, I pulled a wallflower move and decided to sit Thanksgiving out. I was originally planned to volunteer at a shelter, but was so overcome with wisdom tooth pain coupled with family anxieties, that I just couldn’t face anyone…but the nonjudgmental stove and toaster oven of mine.
Baking poses as my therapist, bank account, and humanitarian all rolled into one love loaf cake. Plus, who doesn’t love smashing, chopping, and kneading things?
I decided to opt for my loyal, trusty sidekick, peanut flour once again. I need protein, she reads my mind, we create a wonderfully nutritional masterpiece together. End scene.
This was the recipe as follows: (these are guess-timate measurements BTW)
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1/4 cup peanut flour
- 2 eggs
- 2 tbsp. coconut oil
- 1/4 cup sweetener (i used coconut sugar and barely 1/4 if that)
- 2 tbsp. milled chia
- 1/4 tsp. baking powder
- salt and vanilla extract if you wish
- Mash bananas and coconut oil together. (I placed in microwave for a few seconds to soften)
- Add in peanut flour/chia and stir until thick.
- Add in one egg at a time and slowly beat into batter.
- Add in sweetener, baking powder, and salt/vanilla extract last.
- Pour into pan and bake at 350 for 20-40 minutes or until slight browning appears.
*Keep in mind I used a toaster oven to make this, so it cooked much faster than its big cousin, the oven.
*PS- this totally made for the perfect Black Friday (my first ever) fuel last night. No double shots of espresso or venti anythings needed here!
*PPS- Just 1/4 cup of peanut flour provides 16 grams of protein!! You could probably eat this whole loaf and have no guilt afterwards. How do I know? From experience, of course! 😉
Are you astonished this recipe was planned and semi-organized? Yes, protein will create many more brain wavelengths and normal thought patterns for you. Enjoy! 🙂
Peace, love, and protein!
