Protein Banana Bread Recipe Tips:
+ If you like chocolate chips or nuts, feel free to toss a few in here. Dark chocolate chunks and walnuts are some of our personal favorites.
+ You can also make this a chocolate banana loaf by using chocolate protein powder instead. Yum!
+ The best way to always have overripe bananas on hand is to freeze some when they hit that perfectly “overripe” spot. Just make sure to peel the bananas before you freeze them.
