Yesterday I was in the mood for some banana bread, but only if I could get more protein in it. Usually I have to make a new bread recipe at least twice (usually more) before it works. Amazingly, this one was a hit on the first try. Full of eggs, quinoa flakes, and almonds, this bread is high in protein. Plus, it tastes really good =) My family doesn’t like the taste of quinoa flour, but we love quinoa flakes. They’re much milder. The quinoa flakes and the almond butter give this banana bread a great nutty flavor. I think you will love it.
