* Chocolate goes with banana bread well, which is why I prefer using chocolate flavored vegan protein powder with this recipe, although any other flavor will do.
** While any non-dairy milk will work, soy milk has the most protein of any milk alternative.
** The dryness/moisture content of this recipe can vary drastically based on the brands of flour and protein powder that you use, that's why we wait until the end to add milk if needed.
