Keto Banana Bread

A delicious keto banana bread that uses a real banana in a moderate amount to keep carbs low. Each slice only has about 1.5 grams of net carbs for 12 thin slices. Or 1.7 g of carbs for 10 slices.

Bananas are usually something that many keto kids shy away from, but I felt to make true banana bread it needed a real banana. A medium banana has between 20 and 30g of carbs, so I peeled one and measured out 100g of it on the gram scale and that pretty much used most of it.

The added carbs are definitely worth it when it comes to taste. But for those at a higher ratio I would recommend using banana extract in place of the real fruit. You could also spread butter or cream cheese on the bread to add extra fat.

In order for the inside of the bread to become fully cooked I turned down the oven temperature and baked a little longer. So not a quick recipe to bake, but your house will smell divine the whole time.
