Don’t skip the protein! Protein is an essential part of your diet. It’s the building block of the human body! It helps in the building of everything from your blood to your organs to you hair!
Protein keeps you full longer. This is because protein it takes longer to digest. This also means it takes more calories to digest protein helping you burn calories while you eat – which means I can have seconds! Ok maybe not but you get the point! Don’t skip on the protein!
This recipe can be mixed by hand in a big bowl with a large spoon and some elbow grease. The hardest part of this recipe is not eating the batter while you are mixing it up! Since these are vegan, you don’t have to worry about eating the dough!
So you don’t have to dirty two dishes, always make my flax egg in the large bowl then mix the rest of the ingredients. Make sure you let this sit for 5 minutes before adding the other ingredients though.
Glass ramekins (affiliate link) are great – they are affordable and have so many uses. You can bake this single serve banana bread, or this single serve brownie in them. You can also store freshly cut veggies or berries, since they come with a very tight fitting lid!
