Triple Chocolate Protein Banana Bread is thick, rich and chocolatey you would never guess it’s made with wholesome ingredients! Paleo, and gluten-free!
Would I be an Athletic Avocado without posting some sort of banana bread recipe every month? Heck nah. There are usually a few different recipes in between, butttt I always tend to revert back to making banana bread. It’s my comfort
zone recipe 😛
But today I’m taking banana bread to a whole other awesome level! Not only is this banana bread super tasty (like when is banana bread not), but it’s also full of muscle building protein! Woohooooooo. Thanks to my fave paleo protein powder! The thing I love about Rootz protein superfood is that it doesn’t taste like protein powder, it tastes like powdered chocolate banana bread. If you didn’t think that was ever possible, try it and get back to me. This stuff is amazinggggg.
And if you thought double the chocolate was double the fun, how about triple the chocolate? Even more fun. That’s right, this banana bread has three kinds of chocolate here, making it extra rich and fudgey. If you hate chocolate, this recipe is NOT for you. If you hate chocolate, you should probably get help.
