Keto Banana Walnut Bread
Old fashioned family banana bread recipe turned into a healthier dieting option
- 2 1/4 cup Almond flour
- 1/2 cup Walnuts chopped; plus more for topping if desired
- 2 tsp Baking powder
- 2 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
- 6 tbsp Salted Butter softened
- 3/4 cup Stevia or Splenda (add an additional 1/4 optional for a sweeter bread)
- 4 large Eggs
- 1/4 cup Almond or coconut milk
- 4 tsp Banana extract
- 3 tsp Vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9"x5" loaf pan with parchment paper, so that the paper hangs over two opposite sides (for easy removal later).
In a large bowl, mix together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and sea salt (if using).
In another large bowl, use a hand mixer to butter and erythritol until fluffy. Beat in the eggs (use the low setting to avoid splashing). Stir in the banana extract and almond milk.
Pour the dry ingredients into the wet. Beat on low setting until a dough/batter forms.
Stir in the chopped walnuts.
Transfer the batter into the lined loaf pan and press evenly to make a smooth top. If desired, sprinkle the top with additional chopped walnuts and press them lightly into the surface.
Bake for 50-60 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
Cool completely before removing from the pan and slicing. (The longer you let it sit before slicing, the better it will hold together. The next day is ideal if possible.)
Spread a pat of softened butter over two slices, grill until crisp and golden brown. Pour over warm sugar free maple syrup for a yummy breakfast.
