Low Carb Banana Bread Recipe

It can be so hard to find a good low carb banana recipe that is actually easy to make and tastes delicious.

Thankfully after a little experimenting, I figured out how to make a Guilt-Free Recipe for a Low Carb Banana Bread.

It is perfect for making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, enjoying with a scoop of ice cream, or even making a banana bread french toast recipe.

Low Carb Banana Bread

I love experimenting in the kitchen and keep coming up with new recipes for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, Paleo, and Gluten Free as well as Low Carb diets. 

I try to remind my daughter how grateful she should be that she has a mom available to cook for her as often as I do but like a lot of kids her age, she just doesn’t get it.

My mom had to work outside of the home and like most families, we were barely getting by so our meals consisted of highly processed foods that were full of additives we didn’t even know about yet.

My childhood go-to meal was peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.  

I loved them and still do.

I enjoy the taste of the peanut butter quickly followed up by a cold chill of jelly mixing in.

There just isn’t anything like it.

The problem is for health reasons I know that I should not be eating the traditional form of peanut butter and jelly, which means I had to try really hard to recreate something to get me through those peanut butter and jelly cravings.

That is when I created this Low Carb Banana Bread, it is perfect for peanut butter and jelly!

Easy SCD Jelly Recipe

I love spreading an all natural peanut butter on one slice followed up by a good slathering of my favorite homemade jelly. 

This low carb banana bread makes me so happy.

It is the ultimate comfort food but without all of the guilt.

It’s not a diet food, even though my husband doesn’t follow any of the diets that I have in the past, like Specific Carbohydrate Diet or Paleo, he enjoys the guilt-free recipes I create.

That lets me know that I am doing it right.

When someone who isn’t on a restricted diet enjoys the recipes I create as much as I do, that is when I know I have a real winner.

Hi Melissa, I really want to try this banana bread recipe but for some reason I can only see steps 1 & 2 of the instructions. How long do you cook the bread for?

This looks super yummy. I have some ripe bananas that need to be used ASAP. Maybe I’ll run out to the store to get some coconut flour and try this out.
