Keto banana bread with chocolate chips! Buttery, soft, and scrumptious. Only 4 net carbs for one big slice!

I was never a big banana eater prior to keto but I was an avid banana bread baker. In fact, I would buy the oldest bananas I could find at the grocery to bring home so that I could bake banana bread sooner. Keto banana bread doesn’t sound possible but I’m here to tell you, it is! 

If you’re eating a ketogenic diet then bananas are a no-go fruit option. The average sized banana has nearly 30 carbs, most of which is sugar! Yikes!

When developing this recipe, I toyed with the idea of using a small amount of real banana puree for flavor and texture but I was afraid that even the minimal amount of natural sugar would negatively effect some people. It’s better to be safe than sorry!

So, how did I replicate the banana flavor in this keto banana bread? Extract! That’s right, you can buy banana extract. There are natural extracts and imitation flavorings. And honestly, it’s such a small amount used that a little imitation extract isn’t going to harm you.

I prefer the LorAnn brand because of it’s superior quality. All of my foodie friends agree that LorAnn is the best. Of course, you can grab a store brand bottle at the grocery just as well. 

 

 

Since I was trying to mimic true banana bread, I cut my slices fairly thick. My yield was 8 slices. However, if you want to dial back the macros, feel free to cut into 12 or 16 pieces!

This keto banana bread is soft, moist (I’m sorryyyy), and scrumptious! You can make it in loaf form like I did or into muffins. I really enjoyed this with a cup of coffee for breakfast and as a mid-afternoon snack! My kiddos liked it for breakfast too! They felt like they were eating cake but really just jump starting their brains with a healthy dose of fat!
