Salted Caramel Coffee Loaf

IMG_2686When The Protein Works email came through about their new flavour of whey protein ‘Salted Caramel Latte‘  it took me a matter of minutes before I was on the website placing my order. I love a good latte, and I have had their ‘Caramel Macchiato’ flavour before and loved it, so I was sure this new creation wouldn’t disappoint. The moment I tasted it I knew I would be baking with it, and a coffee loaf was the most obvious way to go.

So here it is, its moist, light, and yet satisfying enough for breakfast with a bit of peanut butter and a coffee.

I had my slice with Pip & Nut Almond butter and it was DELICIOUS!

You’ll need a loaf tin, and ideally loaf tin liners, or baking parchment to line the tin with. The recipe makes one standard sized loaf and my macros are based on cutting it into 10 slices.

Ingredients

  • 20g instant coffee dissolved in 20g approx boiling water
  • 20g coconut oil
  • 100g Salted caramel latte whey protein
  • 100g Fage total 0% fat free yoghurt
  • 100g Oats blended to a flour
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 tsp Baking soda
  • 3 tbsp Agave
  • 30g All bran
  • 70g Unsweetened almond milk

Method 

  1. Dissolve your instant coffee in the boiling water and add in the coconut oil which will then melt in. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees or gas mark 4
  2. Blend your oats to a flour and add in to the dissolved mixture. Add in the Salted caramel latte protein powder, yogurt and eggs and mix thoroughly.
  3. Add in the tsp of baking soda, agave and all bran, making sure the mix is thoroughly mixed.
  4. Finally add in the almond milk a little at a time. Beware it is quite a wet mix as it creates a nice moist texture to the loaf.
  5. Pour the mix into your prepared loaf tin and bake in the oven for around 45mins until browning and a knife dipped into the middle comes out clean.

Post-Workout Banana Loaf

IMG_2369I called this loaf post-workout, because sadly due to the carbs in bananas its just never going to be low carb. But it is low GI and slow release energy carbohydrates. It is also ridiculous delicious, high in protein and its texture was incredible.

I did mine with chocolate chips, because well who doesn’t love chocolate chips, but you could leave those out.

I went for a traditional loaf tin to bake mine, but it would make also fantastic muffins.

My loaf was cut into 8 chunks, they were pretty generous from the size of the loaf I made so you could cut down the carbs by making it go a little further, but personally I think the carb element, mostly from bananas, makes it a great runners loaf or post-workout treat.


Ingredients

  • 2 Medium bananas
  • 2 scooops/50g Vanilla whey protein
  • 2tsp Baking Powder
  • 2 Whites of large eggs
  • 10g Truvia
  • 1 heaped tsp Cinnamon
  • 100ml Unsweetened Almond milk
  • Pinch salt
  • 10g Flaked almonds
  • 20g Dark Chocolate chips
  • 100g Oats (blended to a flour)
  • 1 tbsp Coconut flour

Method 

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degress/gas mark 4. Prepare and line a loaf tin.
  2. Mash your two bananas in a bowl with the back of a fork.
  3. Add the protein powder, baking powder, truvia, cinnamon, and salt. Give it a good mix.
  4. Combine in the egg whites and almond milk, the finally the two flours.
  5. Finally add the flaked almonds and dark chocolate chips.
  6. Pour the mixture into your lined loaf tin and bake in the oven for around 40 minutes until a knife comes out clean.

Can be enjoyed warm but leave it to cool for at least 5 minutes…I know its hard. I sprinkled the top of mine with a few almond flakes and enjoyed on a dog walk.
