Help me pack a little more protein into banana bread

jvanderh | Jul 30, 2011 04:44 PM

I love this recipe: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Whole-Gr... but I need to increase the protein per calorie a little in order to justify eating it for breakfast every morning (especially because I am using real sugar in place of Splenda and adding chocolate chips). I am wondering about adding more egg whites, more sour cream, or some greek yogurt, but am open to other suggestions too. I see that nuts have about the same protein per calorie as ww flour and oats, but they also have more good fat and fewer carbs per calorie, which is probably a good thing since I tend to get plenty of carbs. So, I'm happy to replace some flour with ground-up nuts if that would yield a good result. I would rather use traditional ingredients, but am willing to use protein powder or dry milk or something if that will work best. Though I have perused some other banana bread threads here, I am worried about messing up the moistness, so I am seeking specific advice from people who are more experienced than me in tinkering with recipes. Any advice much appreciated.
