Loafs are the ideal treat for any athlete, but they're often high in sugar and fat. This chocolate chip protein loaf has a base of wholemeal flour and bananas, making it an ideal high carbohydrate snacks for pre/post-exercise or between meals in preparation for training session or competition. Egg whites and whey protein help contribute to 7g of protein per serving.
At a cost of 35p per serving, this loaf makes a great alternative to shot bought snacks that contain high processed sugars. They will last around 1-2 weeks when individually wrapped (let them cool first). For a healthier alternative, you can leave out the chocolate chips and add 2 tbsp of dark cocoa powder or a handful of dried fruit and nuts.
