Lower Carb Banana Bread

With all the pandemic baking going on during the last six months, I felt really left out because I could not figure out how to make banana bread that tasted like the real thing. After a few loaves, I found my perfect recipe. This banana bread tastes as close to the real thing as you can get without eating grain or sugar. Bananas are probably one of the most carb heavy fruit on the planet, which is great if you run everyday but not so great if you’re trying to be as low-carb as possible. So my fellow banana bread lovers rejoice! Enjoy your fresh baked banana bread with a little butter and a hot cup of coffee.

  • 2 c. fine ground blanched almond flour
