2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp vanilla bean powder or extract

Preheat the oven to 180°C and grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan. 

Place all of the ingredients for the loaf into a food processor and mix until well combined.

Add mixture into your prepared loaf pan and place in the oven and bake for 35 mins or until golden brown.

While the loaf is cooking, prepare the icing. Add the nut butter, protein, cinnamon and ash of milk to a small bowl. Mix with a spoon, adding more milk to the mixture until you achieve your desired icing consistency. Taste and sweeten with maple syrup, mixing again to combine.

Once cooked, remove the loaf from the oven and allow to cool to room temperature.
