OMG! This banana bread is amazing and perfect for breakfast with a large cup of coffee. It is also great to add to school lunches, or for an afternoon snack.

-Preheat oven to 350 F and add parchment paper to an 8.5 inch loaf pan.

-In another bowl with a hand or stand mixer cream the sugar and butter together until combined and fluffy.

-Next add in the flour, protein powder, baking soda, and salt. Continue to mix.
-Mix in the vanilla greek yogurt.
-Then fold in the chocolate chips.
-Pour banana/brown sugar mixture in and mix until combined, then pour into your loaf pan.
-To make the crumb mixture, combine the flour, dark brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and rolled oats into a small bowl. Using your hands combine, press, mix, and squeeze until your crumble forms! (My kids love helping with this part!)
-Sprinkle all of the crumble on your loaf and add a few extra chocolate chips on top.
I also love to do a quick sprinkle of cinnamon sugar on top. (This is optional)
-Bake for 40-45 minutes until a fork inserted comes out clean.
-Let rest in your loaf pan until slightly cool.
