Protein Broccoli Bread

I had no intention of posting this whatsoever, but after a number of people commented on the Instagram picture I posted asking for it, I thought I may as well pop it up!

So here you are, one recipe for one small loaf of very green bread. Another green bread – see here for my Spinach Protein Bread I made at Christmas!

You can of course substitute the spelt flour for a gluten free flour, if so desired, and to make this dairy free, I would imagine that omitting the whey protein wouldn’t make a huge difference – maybe add an extra tsp or two of flour.

This is one in particular I would love to see somebody recreate, purely because it’s just a bit on the weird side, and I like weird stuff. Especially when it comes to food. I can spend hours in those funky foodie shops..I am your classic nightmare when it comes places like Wholefoods and Revital. Having said that, I don’t think I’m alone – who’s with me?!



  • 120g (3-4 large florets) broccoli, steamed
  • 40g (2 handfuls) spinach (or more broccoli)
  • 145g (1/2C + 1 .5tbsp) egg white
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) almond milk or water
  • 30g (3 tbsp) pea protein
  • 10g (3 1/2 tsp) unflavoured whey protein
  • 20g (2 tbsp) coconut flour
  • 12g (4 tsp) wholemeal spelt flour (or flour of choice)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • rock salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 170C.
  2. Microwave the spinach for 45 seconds. Add the steamed broccoli and all the other ingredients. Blend together until smooth.
  3. Oil and line a mini loaf tin. Scrape the batter into the tin and bake for 45 minutes.
