Kodiak Cakes Banana Bread Recipe | High Protein Banana Bread

how to make kodiak banana bread

How do you make banana bread with Kodiak pancake mix? It’s easy with my Kodiak Cakes banana bread recipe! When you want high protein banana bread, using Kodiak Cakes mix can help. This healthy banana bread recipe is low in sugar and has no oil added. It’s a healthier option than classic banana bread recipes, and delicious with a drizzle of almond or peanut butter on top!

kodiak cakes banana bread

This Kodiak Cake pancake mix banana bread is studded with pecans and has a hint of cinnamon. It’s a great alternative to Kodiak flapjacks and waffles because you can make it ahead. I love having a grab-and-go bite to eat for busy weekday mornings.

I decided to make this banana bread in a mini loaf pan. This means you’ll be able to enjoy a single serving of banana bread without having to cut slices. The bread will be evenly cooked throughout, without any mushy middle issues (like can happen with larger loaves).

These cute mini bread loaves are a great way to use up that last bit of Kodiak mix in the box. Kids like them, and the mini loaf size is already portion controlled.

Aside from that, you can customize them however you choose. Do you want banana nut bread but don’t care for pecans? Make banana walnut bread instead.

Or maybe you’d like to swap the cinnamon for a pinch of pumpkin pie spice. How about trying almond extract in place of the vanilla?

There are a million and one ways to make banana bread. Pick the options that sound tastiest to you, and enjoy the delectable results!

Benefits of Banana Bread using Kodiak Cakes Mix

Why should you try making banana bread with Kodiak Cakes mix? Check out these benefits:

  • It’s all about the PROTEIN: I'm typically not a fan of using boxed mixes for baked goods, but this Kodiak Cakes mix comes with some advantages. Unlike most banana bread made entirely from scratch, banana breads made with Kodiak mix have more protein. You’re getting 11.3 grams of protein per serving, with no chalky aftertaste from protein powders.
  • Low in sugar: There's a tiny amount of added sugar in the buttermilk Kodiak Cakes mix. Other than that, this high protein banana bread has no added sugar. If you use a very ripe banana, your bread should have enough sweetness without sugar added. No maple syrup, honey, brown sugar, or other sweeteners are needed.
  • Nutrient-rich bread with potassium: Bananas are a rich source of the mineral potassium, an essential nutrient for heart health. You’re also getting nearly 5 grams of fiber from whole grains and fruit!
  • Easy recipe for breakfast meal prep: You can double or triple this recipe and prep this Kodiak Cakes banana bread for breakfast on weekdays. This banana bread freezes well, or you can store it (wrapped in plastic wrap) in the fridge for 3-4 days.
  • Comforting and delicious: Imagine this loaf of warm banana bread, smeared with some slightly salty peanut butter. That right there is some serious comfort food, my friends. It’s amazing that we’re getting some nutrient benefits as well.

🥘 Kodiak Cakes Banana Bread Ingredients

You only need six ingredients to make these Kodiak mini banana breads. Here is what you should have on hand before getting started:

kodiak banana bread ingredients
  • Kodiak Cakes Pancake Mix (Buttermilk flavor)
  • Mashed, Very Ripe Banana
  • Large Egg
  • Chopped Pecans (chopped walnuts may be substituted)
  • Cinnamon
  • Vanilla Extract

I also recommend having some cooking oil spray to mist the mini loaf pans. The bread has a tendency to stick to the pans if you don’t oil them.

If you’d like egg free banana bread, you can make a gel with flax seed meal and water in place of the eggs. I’ll provide more details on this below. (Note: While the Kodiak buttermilk pancake mix contains no egg, traces of egg may be present due to shared processing equipment.)

The flax gel substitution creates a denser bread that doesn’t rise quite as much. I enjoyed the textural difference, but my husband and son had a strong preference for the banana bread with eggs.

For kitchen equipment, I recommend having a potato masher to mash the banana, as well as a mini loaf pan. You can also make this recipe in a muffin tin; doing so may shorten the cooking time. This recipe makes two mini bread loaves or about three muffins.

🍞 How to Make High Protein Banana Bread with Kodiak Mix

Ready to have some warm and delicious Kodiak banana bread in no time flat? Let’s get started!

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mist your mini loaves pan (or a muffin tin) with some cooking spray.

If you haven’t already, mash your banana using a potato masher or a fork. Use a super ripe banana (preferably mushy). It’s much easier to mash and it will add more sweetness to your bread.

In a small bowl, mix the mashed banana, egg, vanilla, and a bit of water. Set this mixture aside.

In another small bowl, stir the Kodiak mix and cinnamon together. Now add your wet ingredients to your dry mixture and stir gently. You want to just moisten all of the dry mix.

Next, stir your chopped pecans into the banana bread batter. Can you believe that you are almost done already?

Fill two compartments of your prepared mini loaf pan with the banana bread mixture. (You’re making two mini loaves, so you’ll have one to share... or you can hog it to yourself. Haha)

Bake your Kodiak Cakes banana bread for 25-27 minutes in the top third of your preheated oven. A toothpick inserted into the center of a fully cooked bread should come out clean. (Some small crumbs attached are ok too.)

I enjoy banana bread best with a drizzle of creamy peanut butter or almond butter on top. Believe it or not, I usually prefer nut butter on banana bread to regular old butter! (Nut and seed butters are lower in saturated fat than regular butter as well, if you’re trying to cut back.)

🍌 How to Make Kodiak Cakes Banana Bread without Eggs

You can make this banana bread recipe pretty easily without the eggs, but the results will be a little different. Eggs act as both a leavening and a binding agent in this Kodiak banana bread recipe. Kodiak Cakes mix also contains leavening agents, but the egg gives the bread an extra boost.

Using flax meal as an egg replacer helps with the binding but not really the leavening. Your finished bread won’t have as much as a rise, but it will still be moist and delicious.

Honestly, I preferred this version to the one with eggs. However, my family outvoted me in their preference for the bread with egg. That’s why I’m sharing the egg version in the recipe below.

The process for making Kodiak Cakes banana bread with flax is nearly identical to making it with eggs. Instead of stirring an egg into your wet ingredients, you’re going to be using a mix of flaxseeds and water.

To make it, simply stir a teaspoon of ground flax meal into ¼-cup of water. Let this mixture sit for 5 minutes before adding to the recipe. The rest of the recipe is exactly the same as when you make it with an egg, except you need to bake the bread for 27-30 minutes. Easy!

💭 Expert Tips from a Dietitian

This is a level 3 recipe (weight maintenance and active lifestyles).  There are no surprises for regular readers here, but items made with flour get the bump to level 3. This is because items with flour don’t tend to be very satiating in comparison to the calories they provide.

It can be easy (for some) to eat an excess of calories when they include a lot of flour-based items in their diet. Baked goods made with whole grains may feel a bit more filling than baked goods made with refined grains due to fiber content. However, almost all baked goods provide a lot of energy in a small volume.

You’re getting 236 calories and 11.3 grams of protein per mini loaf of banana bread. That’s almost double the amount of protein in my mini spelt banana breadrecipe, for about the same number of calories. However, unlike spelt flour, the Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes mix counts as an ultra-processed food.

If you have a weight loss goal, it’s important to ensure adequate protein intake, as protein is the most satiating macronutrient. On the other hand, people tend to eat more calories when presented with ultra-processed food options. So, for fat loss, is an ultra-processed food with higher protein a better choice than a whole food with lower protein?

What I’m ultimately asking here is...

👪 Are Kodiak Cakes okay if you’re trying to lose weight?

As with everything in nutrition, the answer is going to depend on the context. Though they might not be the most “perfect” breakfast, I occasionally enjoy this product. It is possible to fit my “level 3” recipes into many weight loss plans.

I do find baked goods made with Kodiak Cakes to be at least a smidge more filling than baked goods with lower protein. I think the Kodiak Cakes mix tastes completely normal (no weird chalky aftertaste from protein powder). It helps satisfy any cravings I have for waffles, quick bread, etc. and I enjoy it.

But what you’re trying to lose weight with a low carb or keto approach? The first ingredient in the buttermilk Kodiak Cakes mix is whole grain flour. Baked goods made with this mix may not be a good fit for your preferred weight loss strategy.

Ultimately the answer to whether Kodiak Cakes mix is a good fit for your particular dietary pattern is “it depends.” Some may choose to avoid it, while others find it a helpful addition in meeting their goals. What I aim to do here is simply present different options; you get to determine what might work best for you.

🥛 What can you serve with banana bread?

If you’re already going to the effort of making banana bread, why not keep the rest of the meal easy? Serve this bread with some fruit and a glass of milk, and you’ve got a nice start to your day. You can see in the photos I served the bread with cut grapefruit and orange slices. Yummy!

banana bread grapefruit and oranges

For those who want to make something to go with banana bread, here are some serving suggestions. Cottage cheese and yogurt are great options to add some calcium (and additional protein!) to your meal. If you really want to go the extra mile, try making your own! Here’s how to do it:

You could also serve your bread with a big fruit salad. My Banana Split Fruit and Yogurt Bowls are pretty much a meal by themselves. You could add the banana bread to this for a high energy meal (i.e., high in calories).

Frequently Asked Questions

Can you bake banana nut bread without a bread pan?Can you make banana bread in a cake pan?

Yes, you can bake banana bread without a bread pan! This banana bread recipe will work in a mini loaf pan or a muffin pan. Quick breads are pretty versatile in terms of baking vessels that can be used.

You can also make most banana bread recipes in a cake pan. However, this scaled-down banana bread recipe doesn’t provide enough batter to fill a full sized loaf pan or a cake pan.

Can you make good banana bread with unripe bananas?

I don’t recommend using unripe bananas in this recipe to make banana bread. Since we aren’t adding sugar or syrup, overripe bananas are providing most of the sweetness in the bread. Your Kodiak Cakes bread probably won’t be sweet enough if you use unripe bananas.

That said, I have a little trick for you that I picked up from Food52 if your bananas aren’t ripe enough. Place your bananas (unpeeled) on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake in a 300 degrees Fahrenheit oven until the peels turn black. Voila!

Let the bananas cool and then peel and use in recipes. Break any unused “ripened” bananas into chunks and freeze for later use.

Why is my banana bread raw in the middle? How do you know when banana bread is properly cooked?

Having issues with gooey banana bread? If your banana bread is doughy or raw in the middle, it’s likely that it is undercooked. There are a few issues that could be to blame.

If your oven temperature was too high, the outside of your banana bread may have browned before the inside of the bread finished cooking. Try a lower baking temperature next time.

You also could have used the wrong sized pan for the recipe. While you can use a variety of differently sized pans to make banana bread, you might have to adjust the cooking time.

To check your banana bread for doneness, stick a toothpick into the center of the cooked loaf. The toothpick should come out completely clean or with small crumbs sticking to it. If the toothpick has wet batter on it, the banana bread has not finished baking.

Why do those little black filaments appear in cooked banana bread?

The little black filaments are most likely fibers from the banana that are completely normal and harmless.

How long can banana bread be left out without refrigeration?

For optimal freshness (and as a food safety precaution), I would not leave banana bread out on the counter for more than 1-2 hours. After cooling, wrap your individual banana bread loaves in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator. Any bread that will not be used in 3-4 days should be stored in the freezer.

Why did my banana bread come out so dense?

Banana bread batter that has been overmixed can lead to a dense loaf. Remember above how I said you should gently mix your wet ingredients into the dry ingredients? That’s because I’m trying to avoid making banana bread that is too dense.

What are some other ways to make high protein banana bread?

There are many, many ways to make banana bread that is high protein! If you don’t want to use Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes mix, consider some of these other add-ins:

  • Egg whites
  • Greek yogurt or skyr
  • Almond flour
  • Peanut flour
  • Protein powder such as whey protein powder (only if you like it, of course!)
  • Dry milk powder
  • Nut or seed butter (these will also add a lot of calories)

There are ways to increase the protein in baked goods that will fit most special diets. For example, if you are aiming to eat more whole foods, choosing ingredients like eggs and yogurt may be the best fit. Vegans may want to use plant based protein powder, nuts, and seeds.

Kodiak Cakes Protein Banana Bread

Inspired by my family’s banana bread with sour cream, this high-protein Kodiak Cakes banana bread recipe uses Greek yogurt instead of sour cream and Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes baking mix^.

One serving of this protein banana bread with Kodiak mix has about 12 grams of protein – more than 5x the amount compared to a standard banana bread recipe!

One of my favorite parts about this recipe is that it uses one bowl, so clean-up is a breeze, and in about an hour, your home will be lofting with the smell of fresh baked goodies!

Use any of the Kodiak Cakes Power Cakes^ flavors for this recipe – they are all fantastic!

Unripe versus ripened bananas

First of all, why use overripe bananas for baking?

Green or unripe bananas contain a higher proportion of starch compared to ripe bananas. According to healthline.com, unripe bananas have 70-80% starch compared to ripened bananas which have just 1% starch.

In simple terms, starch is comprised of many glucose, or sugar, molecules linked together. Over time, starch breaks down into simple sugars, or single sugar units, resulting in a ripe, more sweet banana – perfect for baking.

How to ripen bananas in the air fryer

If you’ve got the hankering to bake and don’t have ripe bananas, no worries. I’ve got you covered. Below are two techniques – one for the air fryer and one for a conventional oven.

To ripen bananas in the air fryer:

  1. Preheat air fryer to 300F.
  2. Arrange bananas in a single layer.
  3. Cook for 12-15 minutes until blackened and bubbly.
  4. Cool before handling, about 10 minutes.
Unripened bananas in air fryer

If you don’t have an air fryer, you can ripen bananas in the oven. Preheat to 300F and cook bananas on a rimmed baking sheet for about 30 minutes until the skins turn black.

My absolute favorite baking sheets are the Nordic Ware half sheet pans^. I use them several times per week. They are perfect for roasting vegetables, and they clean up well – no parchment paper or aluminum foil required!

Blackened bananas on metal baking sheet

Freezing overripe bananas

If you have overripe bananas but don’t have the time or energy to make scrum-diddly-umptious baked goods, freeze them for later use.

Simply peel bananas, place in a freezer bag or container and wa-laa!

I love having extra frozen bananas, so when the temptation comes about, I can whip up this recipe with just a handful of other staple ingredients. Enjoy!

My aunt posted this on Facebook, and I couldn’t help but laugh out loud! I don’t have kids, but this scenario is still very real in our house. Don’t let this be you, or at least put those overripe ‘nanners to good use!

Parenting is buying 4 bananas and watching them get eaten in one day.

Then buying 8 bananas and watching them rot on your counter because “no one likes bananas.”

What Type of Posts Are You Looking For?

Kodiak Cake Mixesare extremely popular mixes that I see many 20-30 year old’s using for a high protein pancake/waffle mix versus the typical refined flour/overly processed mixes on shelf. I personally love their products as they have several different product offerings that are all relatively high in protein with modest amounts of fiber (a dietitian’s dream come true!!). Some of their products being oatmeal, muffins, granola bars, etc. Check out their website I linked above for more offerings.

Although I am not much of a pancake/waffle eater, I have always enjoyed having a slide of banana bread or muffin in the AM when I wanted a snack. Using Kodiak Cakes mixes, I was able to make a super moist, delicious, and wholesome morning/afternoon snack for myself. These recipes provide ~150 calories, ~20g of carbs and ~10g of protein each (4 servings for each loaf).

Banana Kodiak Cake Bread Recipe:

  • 3 servings of Kodiak Buttermilk Power Cakes (can use other flavors in the “Power Cakes” line, however this is what I have on hand in my pantry)
  • 1 extremely ripe banana, sliced
  • 1 egg white
  • 1-2 tsp of cinnamon (honestly it’s all up to you. I LOVE cinnamon so I toss that stuff in there like it’s nobody’s business)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Lay down some aluminum foil in an ~9×5 in loaf pan and spray it with some nonstick cooking spray.
  3. Mix all of the above ingredients into a bowl & slowly add water into the mixture until the consistency is runny yet still thick like a muffin batter (overmixing is not ideal, so it’s better to play it on the thiccc side).
  4. Once mixed all together, pour into the sprayed loaf pan & set it into the oven on the middle rack for about 15-20 minutes. Once the top is golden brown & the center poked isn’t gooey, you’re good to take it out of the oven.

Not a fan of banana? Check out the recipe for blueberries below. The same directions above apply!

Blueberry Kodiak Cake Bread Recipe:

  • 3 servings of Kodiak Buttermilk Power Cakes (same note as above applies here too)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of frozen blueberries (again, all to your liking! can also toss in frozen raspberries if those are handy)
  • 1 egg white
  • 1/2 cup of stevia (or sweetener/sugar of choice–again this is what I had on hand. If you’re going to use another source be sure you convert it correctly as not all sweetener will be converted to 1/2 cup)

Note: because blueberries do not provide the same rising/leavening properties as bananas, this recipe will be a bit more dense compared to the fluffier banana recipe above.

Enjoy!
