Sorry for the lack of posts on the blog recently. My husband’s tournament fishing season is underway so we have spent a lot of time on the road. We travel with a camper and the campgrounds that we have been staying at haven’t had Wi-Fi. Most of the towns have been pretty remote so going to a Starbucks to work is kind of out of the question. We just returned home after 3 weeks on the road and it feels good to finally be able to blog again. Another reason for the lack of posts is the newest addition to our family, Piper, a very energetic 10 week old Airedale Terrier. (Don’t let her sweet face fool you)

Since I haven’t shared a post in a while, I figured I would share a recipe I tried out before we started traveling a good bit. Its a recipe for low carb protein bread. Its very simple to make and its not only delicious but packed with protein as well. Let’s get right to it, shall we.
Begin by adding 1/2 a cup of almond flour ( I prefer Bob’s Red Mill Almond Flour), 1 1/2 scoops of protein powder of your choice (I used Quest Cookies and Cream Protein Powder), 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt, 2 eggs, 6 oz of egg whites, 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract and stevia and cinnamon to taste. Mix all ingredients thoroughly before pouring into a greased loaf pan. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F until the bread is golden brown. The low carb protein bread does not take long to bake so make sure to check on it frequently.
- 1/2 cup of almond flour
- 1 1/2 scoop of protein powder
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup of greek yogurt
- 2 eggs
- 6 oz of egg whites
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Stevia and Cinnamon to taste
- Preheat Oven to 350 degrees F
- Mix 1/2 a cup of almond flour, 1 1/2 scoops of protein powder of your choice, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt, 2 eggs, 6 oz of egg whites, 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract and stevia and cinnamon to taste.
- Grease a loaf pan and pour in thoroughly mixed batter.
- Bake in the oven at 350 degrees F until the bread is golden brown.
The texture of this low carb protein bread came out better than I anticipated and was not dry at all. It tastes great on its own or you can add some nut butter on top or sugar-free syrup. You could also try different types of protein powder or even add unsweetened cocoa powder to switch it up. I would love to hear what variations you try.
