Keto-Friendly Banana Bread
Makes 1 loaf (12 slices)
- 3 cups almond flour
- 4 Tbsp. coconut flour
- 1 Tbsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 tsp. nutmeg
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- Pinch of salt
- ⅓ cup granulated monk fruit sugar (erythritol)
- 5 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
- ⅓ cup unsweetened hemp, flax, or almond milk
- 4 large eggs (or 4 flax eggs, made with 1 Tbsp. flax meal + 2½ Tbsp. water)
- 4 Tbsp. banana extract
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Line the bottom of an 8-inch loaf pan with parchment paper (use coconut oil to grease the sides, but if you don't have parchment paper, you can use coconut oil throughout).
- In a medium mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda, pinch of salt, granulated monk fruit sugar), then set it aside.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the wet ingredients—coconut oil, milk of choice, eggs (or flax eggs, for a vegan keto option), and banana extract.
- Next, fold the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients—mix until well combined.
- Pour the mixture into the pan and place it in the oven.
- After about 45 to 50 minutes, check to see if the loaf is cooked by inserting a toothpick into the center. If it comes out clean, it's ready.
- Cool, then serve!
