I love all things bread related, I think that’s pretty obvious based on some of the recipes I have shared.
I’m not sure if its the whole stigma of finally being able to eat bread, especially after years and years where I deemed bread as a ‘bad food’. I remember walking around the classroom during snack-time, wanting to make sure that all the kiddies were eating their healthy food first (in true teacher style). I would often see kids eating sandwiches and think ‘You better enjoy this because when you get older eating bread is frowned upon’…How ridiculous is that? It’s so sad that we live in a day in age where its acceptable to only eat certain types of food…but that’s a story for another day…
So, anyway, back to the recipe…on Sundays I meal prep. I cook chicken breasts in bulk, as well as some carbs, I cook mince for Sheldon’s lunch every day, I portion out my veggies for the week, I slice my salad goodies and I bake a few healthy treats which I freeze. This literally takes me 2 to 3 hours on a Sunday and yet it manages to save me hours and hours every other day of the week.
So one thing that I make Sheldon is this bread. It is pretty neutral in taste and is very low in carbs, so he has it as a snack or in between clients (he cycles his carbs around his workouts…something I also try to do)…
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do. It freezes really well, and if you want to defrost, you can either pop a slice into the microwave or you can toast in the toaster or airfryer 🙂
Meal prep protein bread
- 1 scoop vanilla whey protein
- 1/3 cup coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp stevia (Optional)
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon (Optional)
- 5 egg whites
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup Greek yoghurt (You can use double cream yoghurt but I prefer to use old school greek yoghurt)
- 1 tsp vanilla essence
Preheat oven to 180’ and line a loaf tin with some baking paper or tinfoil, shiny side down.
Add all of the ingredients to a blender and blend until mixed, making sure not to over mix.
Pour into the prepared tin and bake for 40 minutes or until golden brown.
If you are worried about the bread sinking in the middle, turn the oven off after 35 minutes and remove the bread after a further 10 minutes.
The cinnamon ad stevia is completely optional. If you would prefer a savory loaf, then add some salt instead of stevia and add some herbs and spices instead of cinnamon. The addition of crumbled feta and chopped peppadew is also incredible.
