Quest peanut butter protein loaf

April 18, 2016

I am not usually one to make protein recipes, I much prefer making nutrient dense recipes out of real food! However, I would be lying if I said I didn’t use protein supplements in my diet – I totally love making big thick protein shakes! I recently purchased Quest peanut butter protein out of curiosity (for anyone who is wondering, I swear by Raw Supps for my protein, all of their flavours are fab!), anyway, I got some Quest because they’re my favourite protein bar brand and I loved the sound of this flavour… I’m a nut butter addict!

The Quest peanut butter protein does not disappoint, It literally tastes like you’re drinking peanut butter! I had already had a scoop in my breakfast, but today was a reaaaally hungry kind of day after a big weekend of training, so I decided to experiment with it. Feeling slightly lazy, I didn’t want to mess around with too many ingredients, so this little snack ended up being very ‘light’, I am definitely the last person you would find counting calories, and I honestly don’t care if I’m eating 1000 per bite, so long as its nutrient dense for my body. But in this case when Id eaten tons of greens, good proteins (not supplements) and carbs throughout the day, It was good to know I could eat more then my fair share of this loaf without feeling too greedy. 1 loaf has 6 slices, which is only 88cals, 6g carbs and 10g of protein.

To make:

2 scoops of Quest peanut butter protein
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup water
1 egg
1/2 tsp baking powder

Blend all of the ingredients together before poring in a loaf shaped tin, bake at 150 degrees for around 15 minutes. I would recommend serving with peanut butter, and i also topped mine with pumpkin seeds for extra texture.
