Dry Ingredients:

  • 1-1/2 cups flour (180g)
  • 3 scoops vanilla whey protein (90g)
  • 3/4 cup PBfit powder (95g)
  • 1 cup zero calorie sweetener

  • 1  tsp baking soda & baking powder
  • Pinch of salt

Wet Ingredients:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1-1/2 cup vanilla Greek yogurt (330g)
  • 1/3 cup applesauce (80g)
  • 2 tbsp melted coconut oil (30ml)
  • 1 tbsp melted peanut butter (15g)
  • 1 tbsp melted peanut butter (15g) for drizzle



  • Preheat your oven to 320°F (160°C).
  • Line a loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients: flour, vanilla whey protein, PBfit powder, sweetener, baking soda & baking powder, and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: eggs, Greek yogurt, applesauce, melted coconut oil, and 1 tablespoon of melted peanut butter.

Mixing and Baking:

  • Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix, as this can make the bread tough.
  • If the batter seems too thick, add a tablespoon of almond milk at a time until it reaches a desirable consistency.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  • Drizzle the top of the bread with the remaining 1 tablespoon of melted peanut butter (optional).
  • Bake for 60-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Let the bread cool in the pan for 15 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.

Additional Tips:

  • You can substitute the melted coconut oil with another neutral oil, like avocado oil or grapeseed oil.
  • If you don't have PBfit powder, you can use the same amount of peanut butter powder or almond butter powder.
  • For a sweeter bread, you can use more zero-calorie sweetener, but keep in mind that this will increase the overall calorie count.
  • You can add other mix-ins to the batter, such as chocolate chips, chopped nuts, or dried fruit.
  • This bread is best enjoyed fresh, but you can store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.


You may need to add additional almond milk to the batter to get it to mix. I only needed to add the smallest amount in mine!
