This Strawberry Banana Bread recipe is sweet, moist and delicious, perfect for breakfast or brunch. Strawberries and honey were added to this recipe to give a touch of sweetness. We have added 2 whole serves of Red Seal’s Fit Protein Powder to give the bread an extra protein boost, which is going to keep you feeling full for longer.

Getting enough protein in your diet is essential in promoting your overall health. It helps to repair and maintain your muscles and is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood. Protein slows down digestion and the release of sugar in the blood which prevents high blood sugar spikes. When blood sugar levels are balanced, you are going to have more control over your hunger, and feel full and satisfied for longer.

This protein is available in natural vanilla and chocolate, contains 60% protein and proudly carries a five-star health rating.  Like all Red Seal products, the Fit Protein range contains no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives which is hard to come by with protein powders. It's perfect for after the gym, or to add to recipes like this one. We also made Chocolate Black Bean Cookies which uses the chocolate flavoured Red Seal Fit Protein.
