Alver Vegan Protein Banana Bread Chocolate Chip

Vegan protein banana chocolate chip bread

Treat yourself to this vegan banana bread that is full of healthy calories! Gluten and lactose free. Perfect hot or cold for breakfast or as a healthy snack. This recipe contains xylitol (don’t be afraid of the name!), it’s a natural sweetener found in some plants. It has a sweetness similar to that of ordinary sugar but contains 40% less calories. Therefore, it will not increase your glycemic index. It’s a great substitute for sugar, but as with everything, make sure you enjoy it in moderation. If you don’t have any, you can use coconut sugar, plain brown sugar or agave syrup, but in this case, slightly reduce the coconut oil.
