At this point, you probably think that bananas are not keto friendly and are too high in carbs. This is actually true, but this recipe for sugar free banana bread is completely approved on a keto diet, and you can enjoy the banana taste without the carbs.

This grain-free banana bread is moist and tender just like my keto blueberry bread and keto lemon pound cake.

Not to mention that a slice has less than 3g net carbs and can be served with a delicious cup of bulletproof coffee or keto hot chocolate.

Is Banana Bread Keto Friendly?

Regular banana bread recipes are not keto because they are made with traditional white flour, sugar, and real bananas. However, my low carb banana bread recipe is keto-approved.

Are Bananas Keto Friendly?

No, bananas are not keto friendly because they are too high in carbs. One medium banana (126g) contains about 30 grams of carbs which are more than the daily carb limit on a keto diet.

If you are following a low carb diet, you may be able to include a few slices of banana in your keto smoothie or keto oatmeal.

The Secret Ingredient for Perfect Keto Banana Bread

The secret ingredient for making keto-approved banana bread is using pure banana extract. While bananas are not keto-friendly because of their high carb content, they are used in traditional recipes for flavor and texture.

Banana extract is made from real bananas and is a concentrated zero-carb extract that can be added to many recipes. When used in keto banana bread, it adds a rich and authentic banana flavor that perfectly mimics the real thing.

Be sure to choose a high-quality banana extract made from real bananas for the best results in your baking..

Why Is This The Best Keto Banana Bread Recipe?

  • Tastes like traditional banana bread without the carbs
  • Moist and soft with a tender crumb
  • Easy to make with just a few wholesome ingredients
  • Ready in less than 60 minutes.
  • Only 3g net carbs per serving

Almond Flour Banana Bread Ingredients

This recipe uses common ingredients used in keto baking, so you probably already have them in your kitchen.

  • Almond Flour – choose a blanched superfine almond flour to get the perfect texture in keto baked desserts. You can also sift the flours to get rid of any clumps.
  • Coconut Flour – super absorbent, helps the bread get super fluffy and airy, just like regular banana bread.
  • Butter – for the best flavor, use unsalted grass-fed butter. For a dairy-free version, replace it with coconut oil or avocado oil.
  • Sweetener – any of your favorite granular sweeteners such as Swerve, Erythritol, or Monk Fruit. For even more flavor, you can choose a brown sugar replacement.
  • Eggs – room temperature eggs to reduce the eggy flavor.
  • Banana Extract – I used a pure banana extract made from real bananas that tastes just like ripe bananas.
  • Almond Milk – keeps this bread moist. You can replace with Greek yogurt or sour cream.
  • Cinnamon – for extra flavor.

How To Make Keto Banana Bread

This is the easiest keto banana bread recipe. Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl using an electric mixer or a whisk until smooth. No special equipment is needed.

Making the Banana Bread Batter

Combine the wet ingredients. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, almond milk, melted butter, banana extract, and vanilla extract until frothy.

Stir in the dry ingredients. Add the almond flour, coconut flour, granulated sweetener, baking powder, and cinnamon. Mix until a slightly thick batter forms.

Baking The Banana Bread

Transfer the batter to a small loaf pan lined with parchment paper. Top with toasted nuts.

Bake in the preheated oven until the top looks golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. 

Cool. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing.

Tips for Making The Best Banana Bread

  • Sift the flour to remove any lumps.
  • Make sure to use fresh baking powder to help the bread rise and become super fluffy.
  • It’s essential to use room-temperature eggs to avoid that eggy taste.
  • Allow to cool completely before slicing, or else the bread may fall apart.


  • Add nuts or chocolate chips: for some extra texture.
  • Use different spices: Cinnamon, nutmeg, or allspice can add a warm and cozy flavor to the bread.
  • Blueberry Banana Bread: Add 1/2 cup of blueberries to the batter.
  • Nut Butter Banana Bread: Fold into a few tablespoons of peanut butter before baking.
  • Chocolate: Mix some sugar-free chocolate chips into the batter before baking.
  • Make it vegan: Use a vegan egg replacement such as flax eggs instead of eggs and vegan butter instead of regular butter.
