Cinnamon Raisin Protein Bread

Cinnamon Raisin Protein Bread
  • Yield:4 servings
  • Difficulty:Moderate
  • Time:10 minutes

This bread is named to humbly describe its ingredients rather than how it tastes. If it was named after the taste and texture, you’d probably call it “bread crack”, or “bread, drugs, and rock & roll” and maybe you could add “with raisins”. This is the best bread I’ve made to date…even better than my apple pie protein bread! The texture is moist and crumbly, and the taste is super-cinnamon and creamy with little bursts of raisin-y sweetness. To know it’s high protein and actually healthy is to wonder if you have died and gone to heaven, or at least to wonder if you had not woken up yet!

Things that make life easy and are also easy to fix really make my world go round. This bread is very easy to make. No need for bread makers or anything fancy. In fact, most of my baked goods are pretty simple. All you have to do is measure, mix, pour, and bake. You get four servings in four simple steps—easy as that.

Ingredients:

  • 3 scoops vanilla EFX Sports Training Ground Protein
  • ¾ cup oats (quick oats, gluten-free or regular oat flour or 5 minutes rolled oats)
  • 1 small box of raisins (you can use two boxes, just add 130 calories and 34g carbs)
  • 6 ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
  • ½ cup egg whites
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp monk fruit sweetener
  • 1 packet of stevia
  • 3 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a loaf pan with nonstick spray. Mix all of the ingredients in a bowl and stir well. Pour it into the loaf pan. If you are using two boxes of raisins, then you can add one of the boxes to the top of the loaf for looks, if desired. Bake for 25-30 minutes. I apologize for getting you addicted to something, but there are much worse things to be addicted to than protein bread!
