Healthy Banana Bread
This delicious Healthy Banana Bread recipe is perfect served as cake to have as a healthy snack on it’s own, or served topped with a little butter. My favorite way to serve it is to pan fry in butter on the stove top for a delicious treat. This recipe is ideal for anyone generally trying to reduce the carbs and sugar in their life. It’s also a great recipe for diabetics, coeliacs, those with gluten intolerance,and for anyone following a low carb, keto or lchf way of eating.
You may have tried my other Low Carb Banana Bread Recipe which is equally as delicious as this one, but it does have the addition of nuts and seeds. This recipe is simply banana with the addition of cinnamon and nutmeg with no added nuts or seeds, aside from the almond flour/meal that is used as a base for the recipe. It is a really moist recipe that keeps really well and is also ideal for freezing.
As my intention is to keep this as low carb as possible, I have only used medium sized bananas in this recipe. You could increase that amount if you wish to give it a more intense banana flavor. Note that 2 banana’s divided into 18 serves does not equate to many carbs. You could also make this recipe without any added sweetener as well, as the banana could be adequate in sweetness for you- adding an additional banana may add a bit more sweetness if desired. This recipe is still suitable for someone following a very low carb, keto or lchf diet if you don’t add any additional banana and if you watch your intake.
If you like this recipe, you should try my Healthy Pumpkin Bread Recipe as well, which inspired me to make this recipe with banana, as it is a fantastic good base recipe.
