Chocolate, Raspberry and Coconut Protein Loaf

This must be the quickest and easiest thing I have ever baked.

I am all about protein loaves, this is not news to us. They are the perfect meal prep snack for the week and I grab a slice pre or post workout out, or as a little snack! They are always delish and satisfying. My go to is usually my bacon peanut butter one but I decided to mix things up with a new flavour combination this week!

I have made this loaf three times now. The first time with sugar free white chocolate, and other times with sugar free dark chocolate. Originally I intended for it to be with white chocolate, and I honestly think I do prefer that combo. But unfortunately I only took pics of the loaf where I used dark chocolate! Both still taste amaze though, I am just such a sucker for white chocolate.

This loaf comes out less dense than the bacon one, and I genuinely feel like I’m eating cake when I’m eating it. I actually debated whether to call this a loaf or a cake. I want to say its a sweet loaf, that would turn into a cake with a drizzle of healthy icing. I am envisioning a raspberry cream cheese drizzle, or perhaps a white chocolate one… anyway, feel free to get creative!

P.S. This recipe works great for muffins as well!

Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Blend wet ingredients together (excluding the raspberries). Pour the wet ingredients into the dry bowl, mix until well combined. Stir in the raspberries and chopped up chocolate. Pour into a greased loaf tin, and bake at 180 degrees for 45-50 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean. (The baking time always varies for me with this loaf, depending on the tin I use, so just keep and eye out from 45 mins onwards).
