Bathroom vent fan circuit

I want to install ventilation fans in three different bathrooms. No outlets will be installed on this circuit. Each fan will be a fan/light combination.

I would like this circuit to be 20amp and GFCI protected. Without putting an outlet on the circuit, what is the best way to get the GFCI protection?

You could install a GFI breaker in the panel to protect the entire circuit or a faceless GFI receptacle that does not have the slots.

You probably don't need the 20 amp circuit just for the fan and light combos.

Unless the units are over the tub or shower they would not need GFI protection unless the instructions call for it.
