We’ve put together some of our finest banana bread recipes for you to get stuck into. And with so much time to spend in the kitchen, there’s nothing stopping you from perfecting them all.


1. Low-Sugar Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Everyone knows the easiest way to take your banana bread to the next level is a generous sprinkling of chocolate chips.

This simple recipe from our kitchen king, Niall Kirkland, has a fraction of the refined sugar as other cakes and biscuits. All the sweetness comes from the bananas and a squeeze of honey — so you can forget feeling guilty about another slice.


2. Cheesecake-Stuffed Banana Bread

Yes, you read that right. Just when you thought banana bread couldn’t get any better, we went right in there with the dessert crossover of dreams.

Made with a couple of scoops of our bestselling Impact Whey Protein, we think it’s one of the most indulgent, high-protein treats we’ve ever had the pleasure of tasting. And it’s low in sugar too – thanks to our Sugar-Free Syrup!


3. Vegan Banana Bread
