Clean Chocolate, Banana & Peanut Protein Loaf

You either love it or hate it, but if, like me, you’re a fan of banana, chocolate and peanut, this is the recipe for you. High protein (thanks to PhD Nutrition protein powder and Sukrin’s wonderful peanut flour), no added sugar (just natural sweetener) and bloody delicious, this loaf is quick to whip up and bang in the oven. The only problem you may encounter is sharing it. Enjoy!



  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tbsp Skinny Syrup (vanilla)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 tbsp almond milk
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder (I used Kaizen Living)
  • 2 scoops PhD Nutrition Vanilla diet whey protein
  • 2 tbsp Sukrin peanut flour
  • ¾ cup buckwheat flour
  • ⅓ cup natural sweetener (I used Sukrin:1)
  • 1 tsp baking powder

For the cacao drizzle:

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder (I used Kaizen Living)

Simply whisk all of these together until you have a chocolate ‘sauce’ ready to drizzle.
Get baking!

  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees C and lightly grease a loaf tin, silicone if possible.
  2. Mash the bananas and whisk with the eggs, Skinny Syrup, vanilla extract and milk.
  3. Stir together all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Pour in the wet ingredients, gently folding it all in. You’re aiming for a thick, smooth batter.
  4. Spoon into your loaf tin and bake for about 40-50 minutes, until risen golden and a skewer comes out clean. Leave in the tin for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  5. Drizzle over your cacao sauce, then slice up and you’re ready to devour, BOOM!
