The large majority of the human population loves bread. White, floury, carbo-licious bread! I’m not a huge bread lover, but I do enjoy a piece with nut butter here and there, or the traditional PB & J. However, I was inspired to make the protein bread you see in the picture above, because my boyfriend devours bread. In seconds.
When I post recipes, I typically just cut to the chase, so here you all go. This was based loosely on a recipe from bodybuilding.com, as well:
- 4-5 egg whites (4 if using large eggs)
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (can use any type of milk)
- 1/2 cup natural flavored whey protein
- 1/4 cup buckwheat flakes
- 1/4 cup sweet potato (cooked or pureed)
- 1 1/2 tbsp coconut flavor
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
Mix ingredients together with a hand mixer and/or any mixer until you have a smooth batter. The batter will be fairly thin, not thick in nature. Don’t panic, that’s okay! Bake at 320 degrees for 40 minutes.
The pieces don’t rise to a true loaf size, but are still great to use for anything you would with normal bread, other than making a big deli sandwich. I took two slices with me to work to accompany my chicken salad. Sopped up the dressing with it, as you would any other bread.
