Sweet Potato Cinnamon Roll Protein Bread

I am certain that not much else reminds me of fall besides cinnamon & sweet potatoes. When I sit down to enjoy a plate of cooked sweet potatoes that have been seasoned with brown sugar and cinnamon, I transform into an instate state of comfort. As I decided to bake a loaf of sweet potato bread, I knew that cinnamon needed to be added in order to complete the recipe. I'm extremely happy with how this bread turned out - it's a moist, melt in your mouth, sweet, warm, flavorful recipe that is sure to send comfort waves all over you! 


Ingredients

½ cup whole wheat pastry flour
½ scoop vanilla protein powder
¼ cup coconut palm sugar
½ tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 large egg
¼ cup cooked sweet potato, mashed
3 Tbsp. plain greek yogurt
¼ cup coconut butter
2 Tbsp. unsweetened almond milk

Method

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a mini loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside.

2. In a mixing bowl, add egg, sweet potato, yogurt, coconut butter, and almond milk. Using a whisk or handheld mixer, blend and combine until mixture turns smooth. Add in the remainder of the ingredients and stir until well combined.

Nicolette’s Tips
* You may substitute whole wheat pastry flour with oat flour or regular whole wheat flour.
* You may substitute almond milk with milk of choice.
* For a lower sugar content, you may substitute coconut palm sugar with xylitol or stevia.
* For a standard sized loaf, double the recipe, use a regular sized loaf pan and increase the cook time by 10-15 minutes.
