High Protein Banana Bread

High Protein Banana Bread


This delicious high protein protein banana bread is super moist, nutritious, and dairy free. It’s filling and packed with protein power and topped with an optional cashew cream cheese!


  • Banana Bread
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 3/4 cup of oat flour
  • 6 grams granulated stevia OR 1/2 cup coconut palm sugar (using coconut palm sugar will make the loaf a darker color) 
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup NOURISH vanilla protein powder
  • 1 cup of 0% fat Plain Greek yogurt OR 3/4 cup plain coconut yogurt
  • 1/3 cup egg whites
  • 1/4 cup of unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 teaspoons of pure vanilla extract

Cashew Cream Cheese Frosting (Optional)

  • 3/4 cup raw cashews, soaked in warm water for 20 minutes
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla protein powder
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Optional Garnishes:

  • Sliced banana
  • crushed walnuts
  • hemp seeds


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Pace bananas in a mixing bowl and mash until you have a thick pudding-like consistency.
  • Add all remaining banana bread ingredients to the bowl and mix until well combined.
  • Grease two small loaf pans (8" x 2 1/2") with coconut oil or line with parchment paper (alternatively you can use one larger loaf pan but this will increase cooking time)
  • Divide batter between both pans and bake for 25 minutes (if using 0% Greek yogurt) or 40 minutes (if using coconut yogurt) or until a toothpick pulls clean when tested.
  • While the banana bread is baking, prepare the cashew cream cheese by soaking the cashews then draining and adding to a high speed blender with the remaining ingredients.
  • Blend until completely smooth, transfer to a bowl then set in the fridge to chill.
  • When bread is done baking, remove from the oven and cool completely before frosting with the cream cheese and garnishing.
  • Slice and enjoy!
