Double Chocolate Banana Bread

IMG_2567

 

One of my absolute favorite things to do when trying to get inspiration for new recipes is to take recipe videos that I seen shared often on Facebook by Tasty, Delish, or various other pages and trying to make a healthier twist on it. That still holds true for today’s recipe as well. Today, we are using up those pesky browning bananas that you just don’t want to peel and eat anymore. To often I’ve seen people get rid of over ripe bananas, but if you don’t know already that’s when they are best for baking! Check out how to make this moist, dense, and rich double chocolate bread.

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 340 degrees. 

Spray and prepare a bread tin. I placed a sheet of parchment in the bottom. 

1. In a bowl place in your butter and sugars. Beat until combined. 

2. Next place in your egg, yogurt, vanilla, and banana in the bowl and combine. 

3. Now add in your flour, cocoa, salt, whey, and baking soda. Mix evenly, making sure all of your cocoa is distributed. 

4. Now pour your batter into your prepared bread pan. Pour your chocolate chips evenly over the top of the batter then place pan into the oven. 

5. Bake for roughly 40-50 minutes, checking periodically. Once the jiggle is out of the bread your done. Use the toothpick test to double check if done. 

6. Take the loaf out of the oven and place on a cooling rack for at least 20 minutes to cool. 

7. Once cool remove from bread pan and either allow to finish cooling or slice and eat! 

You can get really creative with this bread. I’ve given you a fantastic base for playing with flavors! You could add fruits, nuts, peanut butter, any flavor chips you want to use, or anything else you can think of! I preferred putting this loaf in the fridge for awhile so the flavors set and it got cold.

MuscleTech Nitrotech Crunch Bar

Decent Macro breakdown in my opinion. 65g bar so average size. Very similar texture to a @combatcrunch bar. White coating with a pink drizzle and visible spanks throughout the bar. Very soft and chewy but has a bit of crunch from the spranks. Really good level of sweetness in this bar. Strong vanilla flavor, and it reminded me of eating a good frosting or frosted animal crackers kind of. I can’t believe I’m really enjoying a muscle tech product but I have to say this bar is probably the best birthday cake flavors bar I’ve tried, and one of the best bars I’ve had in awhile.

@muscletech cinnamon bun review

240 cal / 7f / 24c / 22p

First initial smell is delicious. Smells like a cereal bar. Aesthetic look with a white frosting. Cinnamon filling, and cinnamon drizzle. Good breakdown for macros as well. Good chew with enough crunch to give some contrast. Great white chocolate coating, and a really good cinnamon flavor. It is a bit strong of a flavor but I love cinnamon so I thought it was great. Extremely happy with this bar. @muscletech killing it.

240 cal / 7f / 24c / 22p
Peanut butter coating with chocolate insides. Visible crunchy crisps. Good macro split compared to @combatcrunch and similar feel. Great chew as it’s a nice blend of soft and crunchy. First get a bit of peanut butter, then chocolate, then the peanut butter comes back. Not a very sweet bar overall so I feel the flavors could of been pronounced a bit more. Feel of eating this though was much better than say a @ohyeahnutrition of @questnutrition as this had good texture feel. Not quite as good as their birthday cake flavor but still a solid bar.

Solid chocolate coating with loads of visible crunchies. Right when you bite into it you get tons of crunch and texture. Smooth chewy filling once you get last the crunchies. Filling is pretty sweet but not overpowering. Could use a bit more flavor imo. Eating this bar kind of reminded me of eating a crunch candy bar but with filling. Macros are a great split for a bar as well. Would of liked to see some chocolate chips inside the filling to fit more CCCD. Not my favorite in the line but still a decent bar.
