High Protein Chocolate & Peanut Butter Banana Bread
This High Protein Chocolate & Peanut Butter Banana Bread has multiple personalities. It can function as a decadent dessert, because of its chocolatey/peanut buttery deliciousness. Because it’s a quick bread, it works as a great after-school or coffee break snack. And, it functions as a perfect grab ‘n’ go breakfast with staying power, because of the addition of protein powder.
Basically, you can’t go wrong with this. 🤪
The Ingredients for High Protein Chocolate & Peanut Butter Banana Bread
Here are all the ingredients (plus 2 bananas that aren’t pictured) needed to make this High Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Bread.
Chike High Protein Iced Coffee is a favorite of mine. I used the Mocha Iced Coffee flavor, but it also comes in several other varieties that would be excellent in this recipe too– especially the Peanut Butter or the Chocolate Peanut Butter!
Each serving of the High Protein Iced Coffee has 20g of protein, only 3g of sugar, and 2 espresso shots. And the best part is it tastes so good. I’ve purchased this many times over for the past few years for smoothies, shakes, and just to drink over ice.
Adding it to this banana bread amplifies the chocolatey flavor and gives it an excellent protein boost!
I used regular pure maple syrup, but if you’re looking to cut the sugar and calories back, you could easily sub sugar-free maple syrup as the sweetener. An equal amount of honey or agave syrup would work, too.
I used 3/4 cup almond powder and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour because I like the texture it gives the bread, but you could flex this how you choose. Use all of one kind of flour, or half and half… whatever you prefer, just as long as it is one total cup of flour.
Prepare Your Pan
This is a really dense and moist bread, so prepare your loaf pan with some parchment on the bottom, as well as spraying the bottom and sides with cooking spray, to make sure the loaf lifts out of the pan easily.
Sprinkle some more chocolate chips on top of the loaf before you slide it in the oven, because….chocolate.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until a toothpick in the center comes out clean. Be careful not to overbake. You don’t want to dry it out.

I wanted to make something healthier than my normal banana bread and I stumbled onto your recipe and I am so glad I did! It is delicious! I doubled the recipe so I could freeze one. I’m lazy so I try to double recipes often! I used cake flour because that’s all I had but otherwise followed the recipe. I can’t wait to try more of your recipes!
Tina, your comment made my day! I’m so glad you enjoyed the recipe! Doubling and freezing is so smart. I hope you’ll find more things to try here. I’ll do my best! 🙂
Thank you for bringing this to FF and sharing with the party.
My mouth is watering looking at your photos, this looks divine!
I made this last week and it turned it so good. I did substitute regular peanut butter with a chocolate peanut butter powder and it tasted great.
I’m so glad you enjoyed it! Great substitutes to make it work for you!
Those protein coffees sound interesting and that bread looks so yummy!
My kids would love this! Thank you for sharing at Embracing Home and Family!

Sounds really good!! Bananas and chocolate just go together. Thanks for sharing at our What’s for Dinner party. Hope you have a safe and wonderful week ahead.
omg I have to try this. Do you think vanilla protein powder would work if I added some espresso powder and cocoa powder along with it?
Yes! I think it would! Let me know how it turns out!
This sounds healthy and delicious!
Niky we love banana bread but have never made a peanut butter version! I will try that next time – great inspiration. Thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday.
