Banana Chocolate Chip Protein Bread

Hey guys! I just realized it’s been a while since I posted a protein snack.  I had bunch of bananas reaching peak ripeness, perfect for banana bread!  I decided to add some protein powder and by now you should know it wouldn’t be complete without chocolate chips!  These make an awesome pre/post workout snack.Banana Chocolate Chip Protein BreadPrint Recipe

      Hi Jen! Yes, it is moist. While I haven’t tested it, I think you could definitely sub the coconut sugar worth Truvia. Let me know how it goes!
