Banana Bread (Low Carb)

Banana Bread (Low Carb)

 BANANA BREAD 

This low-carb banana bread is delicious.  It’s sweet and comforting and packed full of banana flavour with a delightful texture.  Bananas are not particularly keto-friendly, but this cake compromises with the banana carbs by using low-carb almond flour, eggs and baking soda to raise it.  This cake is coming out at approximately 13 carbs per slice.  It’s a culinary luxury for those following a strict keto diet, but certainly acceptable for those following a low-carb diet.

Ingredients – For a 10 slice cake

  • 3              Ripe Bananas (medium-sized)
  • 2 cups     Almond Flour
  • 1 tsp        Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 4              Eggs (medium)
  • 1 tsp        Vanilla Essence
  • 50ml       Skinny Syrup (Vanilla)
  • 1/4 cup    Coconut Oil (melted)
  • 1/2 cup    Walnuts (chopped)

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 175*C
  • Line and butter (or use coconut oil) a heavy loaf tin
  • Slice the banans into a bowl
  • Combine the dry ingredients together well in another bowl.  Then add to the bananas.
  • Lightly whisk the eggs, with a fork, in another bowl and add the vanilla essence and skinny syrup to sweeten the cake.
  • Pour the egg mixture and the coconut oil into the bowl with the bananas and dry ingredients and whisk with an electric mixer until it is well combined into a regular cake batter consistency.
  • Stir through the chopped walnuts and pour into the loaf tin.
  • Bake in the centre of the oven for 60 minutes.
  • You may need to (very quickly) put a piece of foil over the cake after 30 minutes if you think it is browning too quickly.
  • The cake is done when an inserted cocktail stick comes out clean.
  • Leave to cool in the tin.

Serve with a dollop of whipped fresh cream with salted-caramel sauce flavouring, warmed with hot custard as a pudding, or just on its own with your favourite cuppa.  Enjoy!
