You will never believe that this Low Carb Keto Banana Bread has no bananas and is sugar, gluten, grain and dairy free! Delicious and easy to make!
PIN Low Carb Keto Banana Bread
I feel like I’m in some banana bread limbo.
AND we already have paleo coconut flour banana bread, whole wheat banana bread AND paleo banana bread with chocolate and almond butter in the archives.
But, I mean, what else do you do when you have spotty bananas on the counter?
Are bananas keto?
I have zero qualms about eating banana, and you can see my thoughts on the sugar in fruit in this Instagram post. But that’s what food freedom is all about. Some days I’ll eat a slice of normal banana bread and some days I like to experiment with a sugar free, almond flour version like this keto banana bread recipe!
Keto Banana Bread Swaps
To make this a low carb banana bread, there are a few swaps that we are making to the classic banana bread recipe:
Flour – instead of grain flour, we’re using a mix of almond and coconut flour. They are nut based and have a high fat content with a low carb content which makes them perfect for this recipe.
Sugar – instead of honey, coconut sugar or maple syrup, we’re using monkfruit which is a natural, zero calorie, low carb sugar that is derived from fruit!
Banana – Like we just talked about, bananas aren’t suitable to make keto banana bread. SO, I experimented with using banana extract and it actually works wonders!
Keto Banana Bread Ingredients
This recipe is VERY similar to the low carb keto blueberry muffins, so you’ll see a similar ingredient list. To make this delish bread happen in your own real-person life you will need:
How to make Low Carb Banana Bread
Mix the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Then, mix the wet ingredients in a separate large bowl.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet and whisk until smooth and well combined. You don’t want any almond flour lumps in there!
Pour into an 8×8 inch loaf pan that has parchment paper in the bottom and well-greased sides.
Bake at 350 degrees until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 1 hour.
Cool in the pan for 1 hour then gently remove from the pan and slice. Do not let it cool in the pan longer or the loaf hardens and gets hard to slice without it crumbling!
SRSLY. You will not even believe your taste buds when you taste this banana free banana bread.
Just slice it up, spread it with a THICK layer of almond butter or peanut butter and you are SET up for a delicious breakfast or snack.

Keto Banana Bread
Pre heat your oven to 350 degrees and line the bottom of an 8 inch loaf pan with parchment paper, rubbing the sides with coconut oil.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
In a separate large bowl, whisk together all the remaining ingredients until well combined.
Stir the flour mixture into the wet ingredients until well mixed. Let stand for 10 minutes for the coconut flour to start absorbing the moisture.
Pour into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 50 mins to an hour.
Let cool in the pan for 1 hour. Then, gently remove to a cutting board, slice and DEVOUR! **
*As always, please weigh your flour to ensure results
** slice this when it's still a bit warm! It gets a harder crust when it's totally cool and is harder to cut.
