Carob Chip Banana Protein Loaf


I know I’m gonna get lynched for posting a recipe with whey, I just know it.  Don’t hate.  While dairy is not a staple in my diet, I do use whey protein and goat’s yogurt from time to time, so just deal with it, k?  I bet someone’s going to hate on me for using carob chips, too.  Not sure why you would, but every time I roll out some new ingredient I get some push-back.  OK, listen.  I happen to like carob chips a lot…I think they taste like little coffee-chocolate drops and that’s amazing.  And carob, unlike chocolate, is caffeine-free and doesn’t need any added sugar.  And you can make them yourself!  If you’re still going to pitch a fit over my use of whey and carob, use egg protein and regular chocolate chips instead.  Problem solved.

I made this bread because I a) reallyreallyreally wanted something chocolate and b) needed a quick breakfast/PWO snack on the run that was packed with protein.  In case you haven’t noticed, I’m a total meathead.  In fact, I haven’t worn any pants that weren’t either sweats or spandex in nature for…a month.  No, two months.  Wow.  I also haven’t touched a bra that wasn’t of the sports variety for even longer.  That’s saying something because I have teensy tiny boobies.  I probably look like a homeless person 99.99999% of the time.  Kinda sad.  No wonder I needed chocolate this week…
