Since I’ve been on a roll lately, I figured I’d give it a go at a salted caramel and chocolate combination for my next protein treat. I had a ton of bananas to use up this time around, so I made a massive batch that turned into THREE loaves of protein bread! Of course, I had to tweak my base recipe a bit to accommodate that many bananas, but that was the easy part. I will say that the finished product, although supremely delicious, didn’t have as much of the caramel taste as I was hoping for, but rather had surprise “pockets” of caramel flavor.
I will also say that if you are a huge fan of chocolate, this recipe is sure to please your taste buds, because there is no shortage of chocolate here <3! This recipe calls for some Hershey’s Sea Salt Caramel Baking Chips, which I think might be a limited edition item, so there might be some difficulty finding it :(. You can always substitute regular chocolate chips or even add more caramel syrup (which I would highly recommend even if you do have the baking chips), whichever you feel like doing.
