The healthier alternative to all that quarantine banana bread out there! Also weight watchers friendly when you skip the icing. Or don't. Do you!
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 40 mins
Total Time 45 mins
Servings 8 slices


  • 4 ripe bananas
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/4 c protein pancake mix
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • walnuts for topping

Optional Icing

  • 1 c powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp melted butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp milk (I like heavy cream)


  • Preheat oven to 350. Prepare loaf pan with cooking spray, set aside.
  • Combine bananas, eggs, pancake mix, salt, cinnamon, vanilla in a mixing bowl. Smash ingredients together until well combined and to desired consistency (I like some chunks of banana in mine).
  • Pour into prepared loaf pan and top with a few walnuts. 
  • Bake for 40-45 minutes, until center is baked and a toothpick comes out clean. If the edges brown too quickly, top with a piece of foil.
  • Allow to cool until the pan can be touched with your bare hand before removing it from the pan. 
  • To make optional icing, combine all the ingredients until a thick but drizzly icing forms. 
  • Once the banana bread is cooled, drizzle the icing over the top and enjoy!
  • Skip the icing to keep it super WW friendly.
