It's hard to go wrong with banana bread, or at least that's my thinking. Healthy banana bread is one of the best, easiest bread recipes to make and I've definitely made it more than any other type of bread or muffin. This Bone Broth Protein Banana Bread is one of my current favorites because it incorporates bone broth protein; which supports digestive health, immune system function, detoxification, the health of joints and bones and promotes healthy skin, hair and nails. If I can improve in any of these areas by simply eating a few slices of banana bread, then count me in! 😉
My recipe for this gluten free Bone Broth Protein Banana Bread is only sweetened with bananas. It is also nut free, oil free and made with less than 10 ingredients.
What Is Bone Broth Protein Powder
Everyone knows what bone broth is - liquid brewed from the bones and connective tissue of an animal, but bone broth protein powder is a relatively new trend. Bone broth protein actually begins as liquid bone broth. It is then dehydrated, turning it into a concentrated source of high-quality powder.
The highest quality bone broth comes from grass fed cattle, pastured chicken or wild caught fish. Also, bone broth protein that has gone through 3rd party testing for things such as heavy metals, pesticides and antibiotics is usually high-quality. Companies that do this, care about their ingredients and providing a healthy product for consumers. Ancient Nutrition meets all of these requirements, which is why I choose to buy from them.
THIS is a great video to watch if you want to learn more about Ancient Nutrition's Bone Broth Protein and testing results.
Reasons For Using Bone Broth Protein Powder
Bone broth protein powder can aid the body in so many ways. It is known to support:
- healthy gut function
- skin elasticity and hydrate skin
- joint comfort, flexibility, function and mobility
- healthy immune system
I use bone broth (protein and liquid) to keep my body functioning properly and to maintain younger looking skin and a healthier gut. I haven't seen any drastic changes from using it, but I never had any issues to begin with. It's more of a preventative measure for me 😉
Gut Healthy Banana Bread
My Bone Broth Protein Banana Bread uses Ancient Nutrition's Pure Bone Broth Protein to aid in gut health. It is also grain free, and nut free making it easier to digest and is void of any added sugar or sweeteners. This combination of healthy ingredients promotes good digestion.
Even though adding bone broth to banana bread sounds like a weird combination, I promise it tastes great! You can't taste even the slightest bone broth flavor. This Paleo banana bread is simply banana bread with more nutritional value and gut friendly benefits.
