I am in love with banana bread. How can you not be? It is moist, flavorful and perfect for breakfast or as a snack. Banana bread is also so quick to throw together that it only takes a matter of minutes before you have a fresh loaf baking away in the oven. However, most banana breads are full of carbs which can be a problem when you are on a low carb diet. White flour and lots of added sugars make banana bread basically inaccessible to low carb eaters. Until now….
I have a wonderful low carb banana bread recipe that is sure to delight your taste buds with its rich banana flavor. You might be surprised to know that it does not contain any white flour, but rather almond flour. If you have ripe bananas, you can skip the sugar entirely, or you can add a tablespoon of stevia if your bananas are still a little green. I used almond butter to give it a healthy and nutty taste. This low carb banana bread is not only delicious, but also healthy.
One more little trick that you should always do when making this low carb banana bread is to double the recipe and make two loaves. Banana bread freezes so well when wrapped tightly. So double the batch, bake two loaves and save one for later. Next time you are searching for a healthy, low carb snack, pull out your frozen bread, let it thaw at room temp and you will be eating in no time! Isn’t banana bread just the best?
Easy to Make Low Carb Banana Bread Recipe
Banana bread is a delicious treat that’s easy to make. You could make it in your sleep! I love baking this recipe with my three-year-old daughter – if she can do it, anyone can! We measure and mix, mix and measure, then bake and eat. The best part is definitely the eating. While I prefer a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, you can also use a bowl and rubber spatula. The hardest part is mashing the banana, but ripe bananas are easy to mash. If you have an under-ripe banana, you may need to use a mixer to get the job done.
After the banana is nicely pulverized, it’s just a matter of mixing the rest of the wet ingredients in the bowl followed by all the dries. The batter is poured into a loaf pan and baked. You should definitely eat a slice while the bread is warm as it is pure perfection when right out of the oven. Everyone will agree! Also, check out our low carb brownies recipes.
