Chocolate Protein Bread

proteinloaf1

I like to have a ‘treat’ as my PWO fuel because it helps push me through my workout knowing that something delicious is waiting for me at the end! I love how by using all the same ingredients in a different way you can get a totally different result. I just acquired a new loaf pan, so a protein bread was a must. This was my very first attempt, and it turned out great – Chocolate Protein Bread. The apple sauce and coconut oil combo keep this bread so moist. The chocolate flavour wasnt overpowering because I used vanilla protein & 100% cocoa powder. I’m sure the flavor combo can easily be changed up. I’ll be sure to try a new one next time because I am definitely making this fella again!

Ingredients:

  • 1 c Oats
  • 2 Scoops About Time Whey Protein (I used Birthday Cake, only because I didn’t have chocolate)
  • 1/2 t Baking Soda
  • 1/4 t Salt
  • 3 T Cacao Powder (100%)
  • 4 Egg Whites
  • 5.5 oz Apple Sauce (Unsweetened)
  • 1 T Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 c Almond Milk (Unsweetened)
  • Sweetener (I used stevia, both powdered and liquid)

Instructions:

  1. I used whole oats, but you can grind them up for a smoother texture in your bread.
  2. Combine oats, protein, baking soda, salt and cocoa powder.
  3. Add in liquid ingredients. Be sure to melt coconut oil ahead of time.
  4. Add sweetener to your preference.
  5. Bake at 350 for about 40 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean in the middle.
  6. Slice into 8 pieces & eat at LEAST 1 while still warm!

The macros on this bad boy are amazing (calculated here per slice). I had a lot of macros to finish this day, so I ended up eating 4 – topped with sunflower seed butter! UH-MAZING! Drooling just thinking about it…
