Banana Raspberry Protein Bread

I had a container of raspberries and some ripe bananas laying around and wanted to save them before they went bad. So, I threw them into this bread and it came out really good!

You can definitely leave out the raspberries and make a regular banana bread instead. Truth be told, I'm not a huge fan of raspberries. Which is probably why they were about to go bad in the first place...

Raspberries are an GREAT source of fiber- about 8 grams per cup! That  is about one third of the recommended daily value for adults. Fiber is helpful for slowing down digestion, making you feel full, and getting rid of waste (aka go #2).

Either way, leave them in or out- up to you.

You can find the protein powder, stevia and flour from Vitacost. Here's a link for a discount off your first order:
