Banana Coconut Protein Bread!

 oh...
 my...
goodness!! :o

Those were my exact thoughts as I took the first bite of this delicious cakey bread. I felt like experimenting today and boy am I glad I did! You'll be happy as well ;-) This bread is surprisingly moist considering how low in fat it is which is a plus!! This is PERFECT to have pre OR post workout! The best part about it, ITS CLEAN!! I'm sure you're all ready for the recipe, right? 

1 cooked sweet potato
1/2 cup protein powder
1 cup liquid egg whites
2 banana's (1 for batter, 1 for topping)
1/2 cup Gluten Free brown rice flour (substitute coconut flour)
3/8 cup oats
1 tsp cinnamon
1 packet stevia
a dash of vanilla extract
2 tbsp unsweetened organic coconut flakes (for topping; optional, but I recommend it!)

Throw all ingredients besides 1 of the banana's and the coconut flakes into a food processor and pulse until combined. Pour the batter into a pan ( I didn't have a loaf pan so I used a circular pan). Stick the other banana right in the middle and let it sink into the batter(it wont sink all the way in). Sprinkle with coconut flakes and bake at 320 degrees for 40 minutes. Stick a tooth pick in the cake to make sure it's done (it will come out clean.)
I topped this baby with some chocolate pb2 and I'm pretty sure this is comparable to heaven.. maybe.
I know a lot of you like nutrition facts so I calculated all of that as well!
