Almond bread

High Protein Almond Bread

4  cups almond meal
2-3  heaping scoops vanilla* protein powder
½ tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
5 eggs
2 Tbsp honey  ( I used agave syrup)
1 tsp apple cider vinegar

*Two points about protein powder in this recipe.  Firstly, have only tried vanilla protein, but I assume chocolate would work as well.

Secondly, and more importantly—how protein powders react to liquid varies A LOT from brand to brand.  Some brands have more reactive emulsifiers (thickening agents) than others, and so those powders will make the mixture INCREDIBLY thick and hard to work with.  You’ll want to experiment with 2 scoops and see how the mixture looks and feels.  Add more if you can.

If you want to have more protein, you may have to cut some of the flour to add in more powder.

1.) Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.
2.) In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.
3.) In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and add the remaining wet ingredients.
4.) Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix thoroughly.
5.) Transfer the mixture to a 5×9-inch standard loaf pan, lightly oiled (a spray oil makes it easy).
6.) Bake for 60+ minutes or until a skewer/knife inserted in the bread comes out clean. |
7.) Cool and slice.
8.) Burn hands and mouth.  I TOLD YOU TO LET IT COOL. You never listen.  You always have to try it before it’s cooled and now you burned yourself.  Serves you right.

It’s delish.  And, if you’re having a high calorie snack, spread some almond butter on it for extra deliciousness.

I also drizzled a little agave over it for the boys…they loved it!  Enjoy

note looking for nutritional breakdown will add once I find it.
