Dry Ingredients:

1 cup Peanut flour

1 cup WW Pastry flour

1 tsp baking soda

Wet Ingredients:

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup apple sauce

1/2 cup egg beaters

1/3 cup greek yogurt

1 tsp vanilla extract

3 super ripe bananas, smashed

Directions: Mix dry ingredients. In a separate bowl mix sugar and apple sauce. Add in the rest of the wet ingredients to the apple sauce mix. Combine wet with dry. Mix well. Pour into a well greased cake pan.

Just kidding, that was lunch. I ate while patiently waiting for my bread to be done.

I took it out of the oven a little prematurely and it looked done, but was too wet in the middle. So, I put it back for a few more minutes. Don’t let the cracks in the top fool you, it may not be done. IMG 7252 thumb High Protein PB Banana CakeCheck by inserting a toothpick (or cutting a piece and eating it half baked).

    Oh man, I just made banana bread today with my yucky bananas. I have TJ’s peanut flour in my pantry, but I baked before you posted this. Too bad.
    I’ll try this another time.

    Nutella would be awesome on top.

    YUMMY!! I picked up 3lbs of bananas today because it was only $1.26.. I’m sure I’ll have a few extra ripe bananas to make this PB protein banana bread!

    I’ve been thinking about what else I can do with my peanut flour. This bread looks great! Although for a minute there, I thought you cubed it and put it on your salad. Almost had me there!

    That looks delicious! I’m currently waiting for some banans to be overripe just so that I can make banana bread! Adding applesauce to it is my favorite because it makes the bread sooo moist!

    I made this recipe this morning for a ladies morning brunch. It was my very first venture into baking. The peanut flour from TJ’s is actually kind of tricky to open but alas, all of the fuss was worth it. I actually was able to smash the bananas in the bowl without creating a mess and 45 minutes was plenty of time for my oven. I might even go to 40 minutes (the top was a little over crusty). Thanks for the recipe!

      I always make a mess when I open that flour! Thanks for the heads up about the time – my oven is 89 years old, so I should take that into account when I post recipes :) I’m basically cooking over an open flame cave man style…
