Low Carbs Banana Bread

We love banana bread. Yesterday I looked at the three “riper than desired” bananas on my kitchen island and though that would be their destination, but wanted to reduce the carbs bomb a bit….

So I replaced the flour with almond meal, a few small tweaks, and it came out so good!

You can get almond meal in many places now, I got mine at Trader Joe’s. It’s pure almonds, nothing else.


  • 2 cups almond meal.
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 3/4 cup Sugar in the raw
  • 1 tbsp molasses or honey
  • 3 overripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted, room temperature

Note: You can substitute the sugar in the raw and molasses with dark brow sugar.

  1. Mix well all dry ingredients
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well
  3. Pour the batter into a greased loaf pan.
  4. Bake for 50-55 minutes at 350F, until a toothpick comes out “pretty clean”.
  5. Let cool for 10 minutes before carefully turning it out from the pan.

So good…
