Philippines day 3: I have worked off exactly 0% of the food I’ve eaten thus far. #filipinofood #halohalo #manginasal #icecream #banana (at Phase 3B Gatchalian Subd.)
Paleo Cinnamon Banana Raisin Walnut Bread
Jesus, that’s a mighty long name for a food. Let’s just call it PCBRWB. Much easier.
3 Bananas *Go for ripe, approx. 300g total.
2TSP Raw Honey
1½ Scoops of Vanilla Whey Protein Powder *Controversial paleo? Only for those that aren’t 100% I guess. Sub in 1TSP vanilla extract, or more if you so desire.
½C Almond Flour
¼C Coconut Flour
¼C Walnuts *Crushed.
½TSP Baking Soda
¼TSP Sea Salt
Preheat your oven to 350F. Take all of your dry ingredients, mix into a bowl, and set aside:
Now, with your handy handy blender/processor, place the bananas, eggs, and honey into whatever you have and blend:
Next step? Pour the mixed concoction of raw deliciousness into the dry mix, AND MIX IT UP ‘MON:
Mmm, THAT ACTION SHOT THOUGH.
Next up, grease your bread loaf pan, whatever the hell it’s called, up with your choice of poison. I use PAM Olive Oil spray:
It really didn’t stick guys! :P
And pour your batter into the pan thingy:
Looks good, right? NOT YET.
..Then lick the spatula.
Alright, see that ½C of crushed walnuts you haven’t used yet? TIME TO MAKE THE CALL TO THE BULLPEN:
I won’t lie to you if I was short a few walnuts while spreading it on the bread..
Place in the oven, bake for 35-40 minutes (Depending on your oven; mine is convection), and kill some time while waiting for this delicious bastard to finish baking. They should be done after 35, but stick a toothpick in it and make sure it comes out clean, just to be safe.
Ready for some #bananabreadporn?
Alright, maybe I exaggerated a little.. But you get the point.
And that’s all there is to it guys! I honestly can’t tell you how long these last, because since I’ve made this, the loaf disappears within 2 days. And it’s not just me. For my family to like it enough to eat it says a LOT on how good this is.
Maybe I’m just hyping everyone up. Fuck, sorry if it takes like total shit and you’ll unfollow me and hate me forever.
By the way, I haven’t tried making this WITHOUT whey protein powder.. If you take it out, I’d assume just add ¼C of almond flour or something..
If you’re the group that likes it, high five. You can toast these bad boys in the oven/toaster and put some of that grass-fed butter. DELICIOUS!!!!!

It was good enough to get me through this morning’s #WOD. :) #avocado #banana #blueberry #raspberry #sodelicious #coconutmilk #bodybuilding #whey #protein #gnc #blender #crossfit #workout #paleo #smoothie #healthy (Taken with Instagram)
Today’s surprisingly good lunch: #scrambledeggs with #pesto #zucchini #pasta and a dessert of #paleo #banana #chocolatechip #cookies! The cookies came out way better tasting than I expected haha :P #myfood (Taken with instagram)
Avocado Banana Smoothie
1C Unsweetened Coconut Milk
½ Frozen Banana
¼ Hass Avocado
1TBSP Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 scoop protein powder of your choice *I of course use vanilla. :)
Add and blend/process all the ingredients until it’s to the texture of your liking.
Drink/Spoon into mouth. Or stare at it.
*Serving Size: Makes 1¼C.
The ending result gave me a thick, creamy texture mostly due to the frozen banana and avocado. I had to spoon the smoothie out of the cup instead of drinking it. I’m sure if you add more milk, it’ll thin out.
I loved eating it the way it was though. It’s my go-to breakfast when I wake up and I’m running late, or a snack/meal replacement. I definitely didn’t need to add any sweeteners or anything similar; it was sweet enough for me. :)
