Cooler mornings have made me crave a fall treat - gingerbread! Why not combine two of my favorite breads? Banana Plantain Gingerbread!
1 medium plantain, fully ripe*
1/2 cup liquid egg whites
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp Golden Lakanto (or brown sugar/other sweetener)
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp no sodium baking powder
1/8 tsp cardamom
Pinch of cloves
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used Growing Naturals Rice Protein)
Preheat oven to 350.
In a small blender (I used a Magic Bullet) blend all ingredients except the protein powder.
Add protein powder and blend again until just combined.
Pour into a prepared pan (I used 8-in round) and bake for 15 mins.
*A plantain is fully ripe when the skin has turned almost black; it will be aromatic and sweet.
