Low Carb Banana Bread Recipe

Keto banana bread has been a long requested recipe for many of us on the low carb diet. It’s hard to find a recipe that is similar to the traditional banana containing quick bread. This recipe for this sugar-free banana bread is easy to make and it doesn’t contain any bananas! Plus there are only 2.6 grams per 60 gram slice.

Enjoy a slice of this keto banana bread with your morning coffee as a quick breakfast or an afternoon treat. This moist, low carb bread is keto comfort food at it’s finest!

Banana Free Keto Banana Bread

This keto banana bread has NO BANANAS in it. Bananas are not keto approved that is why we don’t use them in this low carb banana bread recipe. They are high in natural sugars and carbohydrates. On medium banana has 27 grams of carbs in it!

To make keto banana bread without using bananas, we use banana flavor extract instead. You can use one tablespoon of this banana extract or you can use concentrated flavor drops by oooflavors. These drops by Oooflavors are more concentrated so you will only need about 15-20 drops to each the same banana flavor as a more diluted extract.

Keto Baking with Protein Powder

Protein powder makes a good substitute for flour in keto baking. It provides extra protein while providing structure to your keto breads. My favorite protein powder to mix and bake with is by Perfect Keto. They have a line of keto approved whey protein powders that are made from grass-fed animals, and contain a small amount of MCT oils. The best protein powder flavors to use in the keto banana bread recipe are unflavored or vanilla. You can save 15% off your first order with my discount code KETOFOCUS15 or just click the link above.

If you don’t want to use protein powder, you can use coconut flour instead. Just use 1/4 cup of coconut flour in the banana bread batter.

Sour Cream Substitutes

Sour cream is added in this recipe to provide moisture to the banana bread and give a little tangy to balance the sweet flavor.

Coconut flours, protein powders and keto sweeteners can produce dry, dense baked keto goods. The sour cream will help add fat and moisture to the keto banana bread and help balance out those effects from low carb baking. The sour cream yields a creamy flavor too.

If you don’t want to use sour cream in your sugar free banana bread, you can use a full fat greek yogurt or heavy cream.

Bread Loaf Pans

In this recipe, I used two 3 x 6 inch small loaf pans. Your can use a larger loaf pan and add all of the keto banana nut bread batter to the large loaf pan. A cake pan works well too if you don’t own a bread loaf pan.

Keto Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

For a real treat, add some sugar free chocolate chips to the keto banana bread batter before baking it. My favorite keto approved chocolate chips are by ChocZero. Their chocolate chips are the best sugar free chips on the market. They are sweetened with monk fruit instead of sugar alcohols.

  1. This was a simple recipe and cooked up very pretty. But it was waaaay to much butter for me. I almost got sick trying to eat a piece. I will definitely have to make adjustments should I make this again. Thanks for your efforts.

  2. Awesome banana bread, when l saw the above review l did less butter and it came out pretty good but l think next time l will use less again.
    Overall best keto banana bread so far.
