About these Banana Colada Bread Blondies:
As I mentioned in the intro, I said I was going to tell you how to use protein powder instead of flour; this is a great hack to keep things gluten free and low carb as well! If you are similar with coconut flour, then this is pretty similar!
The trick is on using the right protein powder, in this occasion I use on repeat Nuzest Protein, also plant-based, low carb and with minimal ingredients. It has a great taste; not chalky, funky or anything like that. This is why it's important to use the correct protein powder.
The key is also in the liquid content! You might need more if you are using protein powder since in this occasion, it's made from pea protein and it might absorb more water in the baking process, we want to avoid any dryness.
One of the best parts of using protein powder is that also adds flavor and thickness to the recipe; it's really a game changer, honestly! In this occasion I used the vanilla one, but the strawberry will have a extra fun effect on the recipe too!
Overall, these are the ingredients needed for these Banana Colada Bread Blondies:
Dairy Free Yogurt
Keto Candied Pecans (I used Marigold)
Well, the ingredients together are just so appealing to hear... you just have to bake this to see and test with your own taste buds that this is such an amazing recipe. These are super easy to make as well and practically fail proof!
Super nutrient dense! From protein, fiber, healthy fats and micro nutrients from the ingredients these Banana Colada Protein Blondies are just the perfect snack for the kiddos, grown ups and picky eaters!

The end result
Thick, coconutty and soft! These are just a tropical dream in a blondie! The flavor of banana along with the coconut here is just dreamy and irresistible. The outside is slightly crispy and the inside is thick, rich and soft at bite.
Melts in your mouth!
You might want to save this recipe because a second batch might be needed here! I shared some of the blondies with my friends but they were just too good as my afternoon snack after crossfit or dessert that I had to bake some more.
Pro tip: Air fry them for a few minutes for a crispier blondie! You can also freeze them and have them ready to devour at any moment of the day.
