Protein Banana Bread

It has been one of those mornings. You know what I'm talking about. The kind where you find yourself so busy that you are sitting down to breakfast and you realize it's already noon. The kind where you may or may not have nibbled on a doughnut while grocery shopping....had way too many cups of coffee...and you're desperately trying to deal with a cranky toddler??? No? Well, that was pretty much my morning in a nut shell. So what better way to fix it then to procrastibake some banana bread. Protein packed banana bread at that. Life isn't complete without banana randomness! I have made this bread several times and it is usually because I buy WAY too many bananas at a time and baking seems like the most logical way to put them to use before they completely go bad. That or blended up in a smoothie. But that's a different story for a different day...today was bread! AND about the doughnut....I'm about to HIIT my workout...SO it's essentially like that never happened...right?! ;)
