Coconut Protein Bread with Lime Ricotta Filling

Coconut Ricotta Bread

Serves: 1

This bread is so moist and flavorful! It makes my mind drift off to a tropical island! It is low in calories, fat, carbs and sodium yet high in protein! It makes a great breakfast or dessert!

Fit Ingredients:

22g vanilla whey protein (3/4 scoop)

62g fat free, low sodium ricotta cheese (1/4c)

5 drops liquid stevia

6g ground flax seed (1 tbs)

3g shredded coconut (or more to taste)

1 tsp coconut extract

3 large egg whites

1/2 tsp baking powder

Directions:

Pre-heat your oven to 325 degrees.

Mix your dry ingredients (protein, flax, coconut and baking powder) together in a bowl. In a separate bowl mix together, your dry ingredients (egg whites, coconut extract, stevia, ricotta). I like to use an electric mixer so the ricotta becomes nice and creamy. Add your dry ingredients to your wet ingredients and continue to mix until fully blended.

Spray a mini loaf pan with non stick spray. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for approximately 23 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

When it is done cooking, remove it from the oven and let it sit for about 30 minutes.

I filled mine with an amazing Lime Ricotta Cream that I made:

62g (1/4c) fat free, low sodium ricotta cheese

2 drops liquid stevia

2 tsp fresh lime juice

lime zest

Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer! Soooo easy! 🙂

    It was awesome. I made some tonight and I separated it into 6 mini muffins instead of a larger serving for one. I put the lime ricotta on top and a little more shredded coconut. :) It was yummy

    • That sounds perfect!! 'Ricotta Lime Mini Muffins' :) I am obsessed with this product called Coconut Manna! I didn't discover it until after I made this recipe, but it would be amazing with it!! Coconut is one of my favorite flavors!
