Protein Bread! It’s Good!

protein breadThe 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.
