To make a loaf of Low Carb Banana Bread, you’ll need:
Contents of this pack
2 large eggs
125ml (1/2 cup) milk of choice
125g butter, melted
2 large (200g) ripe bananas, mashed
PRO TIP – Like other banana bread recipes, you’ll get the best tasting loaf by using overripe bananas – brown and spotty are ideal!
PREPARE – Preheat a fan-forced oven to 160°C and line a small loaf tin with baking paper, or use a silicone loaf tin.
MIX – Empty contents of this pack into a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together milk, eggs, & butter, then add the mashed banana. Pour the wet banana mix into the dry mix and gently fold until just combined. Spoon the batter into the lined loaf tin. Use a spatula to ensure no mixture is wasted. Evenly spread out the mixture. Decorate with additional banana if desired.
BAKE – Place in preheated oven and bake for 55-60 minutes. Test with a skewer. After baking, remove from tin and place on cooling rack for approx. 1 hour.
SLICE & ENJOY – For best results, wrap in a tea towel & refrigerate overnight before slicing (with a sharp serrated bread knife). Enjoy warmed with butter.
STORAGE – Banana bread must be stored in the fridge (1-4°C) for up to 5 days, or freezer (-18°C) for up to 3 months.

How do you make keto banana bread?
A keto diet is usually 20-30g carbs or less, but this does depend on the individual. Getting into nutritional ketosis can vary from person to person, and some people can tolerate more carbs than others, plus it depends on what your goals are, as well as your current weight & activity level.
Traditional banana bread is definitely not suitable for keto, as it’s made with white flour, sugar, and bananas. Our Protein Banana Bread could easily fit into a keto way of eating with only 6.9g carbs per serve so we would suggest this product. It may not be an everyday choice to those who follow 30g or less carbs per day, however, could still be factored in as a treat or as mini low carb banana bread muffins.
