Forget everything you thought you knew about banana bread.
Without any white flour to weigh down the flavor, this healthy and naturally gluten free banana bread has the most unbelievable melt-in-your-mouth texture.
I had two slices with breakfast three hours ago, and I’m still dreaming about it.

Low Carb Banana Bread
Honestly, I wasn’t prepared for it to taste so good.
I’d planned to make the paleo bread for my parents when they came to visit (trying to help them eat fewer white carbs!).
But I fell so in love that I ended up eating half the recipe by myself before they even arrived and had to make a second loaf to share.
It’s not a traditional texture at all… more like a dense and fudgy cheesecake texture. However it does make clean slices. I let it sit out overnight then put leftovers in the fridge the next day.

Is the banana bread keto friendly?
Because bananas are an unacceptable food on the keto diet, the idea of keto banana bread is an oxymoron.
(I would be really terrible at the keto diet.)
If you need a truly keto banana bread recipe, I’d make a regular keto bread recipe and just add banana extract.
Is the recipe vegan?
Without any milk, cream, or butter, the recipe is naturally dairy free.
For the eggs of choice in the recipe, you can use either 2 tbsp Bob’s egg replacer mixed with 6 tbsp water, or it also works with flax eggs. I’m sure there are other egg replacers I haven’t tried that will also work, so be sure to report back with results if you try!

To make the grain free banana bread, I started by doubling this recipe for Keto Muffins, replacing the milk with mashed banana.
But who ever heard of a banana bread with only half a cup of banana?
There were two extra bananas sitting on my counter, so I decided to throw them in too.
Edible experiments are the best kind.
And was it ever a good decision!
Almond Flour Banana Bread
- Grease or line a 9×5 loaf pan. Preheat oven to 325 F. Stir all ingredients until smooth. Pour into the loaf pan. Bake on the center rack 50-55 minutes. Let it sit until completely cool before going around the sides of the pan with a knife and carefully popping out. It is SUPER moist and fudgy. Refrigerate leftover up to 6 days, or slice and freeze for a rainy day.View Nutrition Facts
