  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder 
  • 1 tsp baking soda 
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. 
  2. Mash the banana and add in the grated zucchini, apple cider vinegar, milk, oil, peanut butter, sugar, and vanilla and mix well. Set aside. 
  3. In another bowl, add the flour, protein powder, baking soda, baking powder, salt, chopped walnuts, and some chocolate chips (measure by heart) then gradually add the wet ingredients and mix just until combined, scoop into a parchment paper lined bread tin, add more chocolate chips on top and let it bake for 40-45 minutes until brown on top. 
  4. Let the bread cool before removing from the tin to slice, slice, and serve or freeze the sliced individually for future use or a quick and easy breakfast or snack on the go.
