This time of year I am looking to clean up my diet, shed a few holiday pounds, and get back on track with my healthy eating goals (check out my detox routine!). Ditching refined sugar but still enjoying treats like this Paleo Granola or these yummy Date Cookies.

Another great treat, obviously, is this keto banana bread. Let’s check it out!

Ingredients for Sugar Free Banana Bread:

We are using ripe bananas because the riper they are the more natural sweetness they bring. That way can skip the added sweeteners and keep this recipe lower in sugar.

How to Make This Recipe:

The method for this almond flour banana bread couldn’t be easier!

Also, have you seen this kitchen hack for lining your loaf pans?

First, flip your pan over.

Next, lay your piece of parchment over it and fold the edges like the corners of a Christmas present.

Finally, flip the loaf pan back over and your piece of parchment paper will sit right in.

So cool, right?

Now to make the batter. First, stir the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl. Then transfer the flour mixture to a blender and add the wet ingredients. Blend until smooth. Next, pour the banana mixture into a loaf pan.

I’ve been on a huge pan-toasted pecan kick, so pecans are my nut of choice in this bread.

Off it goes into the oven.

Just like most baked goods, this doubles as aromatherapy as it bakes. Mmmmmmm.

Use the toothpick test to ensure your bread is baked.

Let it cool on a rack for about 10-15 minutes before cutting into thick slices.

Remember this is only sweetened by fruit and doesn’t use traditional whole wheat flour so the texture of this bread won’t be super fluffy and it won’t taste super sweet.

Nonetheless, we really enjoy this bread. It’s low in carbs, low sugar, and hits the spot if you want a healthy treat while dieting or doing a detox.

  2. Hey,

    I’d love to try this recipe but I do hate coconut (even the smell) so do you know any other nice alternative of the coconut oil for this recipe? I might use normal flour as well. I can’t wait to try, seems so so yummy.
