Bread is a tricky thing to make that's both tasty and reasonably healthy. So when we got this recipe that uses a high-protein cottage cheese as a base, we gave it a shot.
Surprise! It was actually GOOD. You can "enhance" it by adding protein powder and fruit to the mix. One of our taste testers' favorite topping is sugar-free honey from HoneyTree.
1. Preheat over to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Blend all the ingredients (except cooking spray) together for about 1 1/2 minutes.
3. Line a 9x5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper.
4. Lightly coat the parchment paper with the cooking spray and pour the batter in.
5. Bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees until the top is brown. Once it is, cover with aluminum foil so it doesn't brown anymore and bake for an additional 25-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the loaf comes out clean. (Make sure the aluminum doesn't touch the bread, or it might stick to the top.)
6. When the bread is done, let it sit for 5 minutes. Then remove it from the loaf pan and put it on a wire rack to set for an additional 10 minutes.
7. Slice and serve.
