IMG_0673

Option 1

2 cups overripe mashed banana

2/3 cups almond butter

2 tbsp cocoa powder

3 tbsp chocolate protein powder

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1/4 tsp salt

Optional: chocolate chips, crushed nuts

Method

Start by slightly warming the almond butter until it is easily stir-able.

Combine all ingredients in a bowl, stir until completely smooth, and spread into a greased pan.

Bake for about 15 minutes (keep checking on it). Let cool before slicing.

 

Option 2

1 cup gluten free oats

3 tbsp cocoa powder

1 scoop organic protein powder

1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

3 medium to large ripe bananas

1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Optional: chocolate chips, crushed nuts

Method

Place oats into blender or food processor and blend for 1-2 minutes until oatmeal resembles flour. Transfer oat flour to a medium bowl; whisk in cocoa powder, protein powder, baking powder, and baking soda; set aside.

Place banana and vanilla into blender; blend until smooth and creamy. Add to oat flour mixture and mix until just combined.

Gently fold in the chocolate chips (if using). Pour batter into a greased pan. Bake for 15 minutes or until knife inserted into center comes out clean. Cool 10-15 minutes before slicing.
