Chocolate Bread

Bread packed with protein and is close to sugar free, and could possibly even be considered....healthy?! Get outta here! It's true though, I came across this recipe the other day, and today - I decided to treat myself, it is Sunday after all, mmmm....

The original recipe used some healthy peanut butter cups in the batter, but I decided to keep it plain, as I wanted to top it with peanut butter anyway! You can add bits and bobs to this though, perhaps swirls some peanut butter through the batter for some extra crunchy goodness - it's entirely up to you!

Chocolate Bread
(Makes a loaf, about 500 calories for the entire thing!)

2 eggs
30g sukrin gold/xylitol
25g chocolate protein
10g coconut flour
10g wholemeal flour
1tbsp cocoa powder
1tsp baking powder
A pinch of salt
100-150ml skimmed milk
Butter or sunflower oil for greasing

- Pre-heat the oven to 180ÂșC.

- Whisk the egg and sweetner until it is nice and airy, before adding the dry ingredients followed by the milk. Mix it all well until there are no lumbs and you have ended up with an almost cupcake-like batter.

- Grease a bread load tin, OR dress it with baking parchment and pour in the mixture. I only had a normal sized load tin, but if you have the ones that are a little bit smaller, then that's even better! Bake for about 25-30 minutes until it is cooled through. Leave to cool a little before taking out of the tin. Slice up and enjoy! I had mine with some peanut butter...Healthy bread never tasted so good!

An edible canvas, there for you to spread whatever toppings you'd like onto it, perhaps nutella?
