This grain-free dairy-free banana bread is our absolute favorite! There is minimal sugar too with the sweetness coming from the bananas (fructose) and just 3 tablespoons of erythritol, which won’t spike blood sugar. I have found this to be the perfect balance of delivering a mild sweetness to this comforting classic loaf. After tinkering with many versions of this recipe over the years this is by far the most delicious and healthiest banana bread.
I have managed to sneak in a ton of fiber to help you to feel fuller for longer and to also feed your good gut buddies (bacteria) in your microbiota. Fibre also helps to slow the release of glucose into the bloodstream because you know I am all about balancing your blood sugar so that you can bring your ‘A’ game.
Important note: Make sure you use very ripe soft bananas (with black spots on the skin are best.) Also, ensure soft bananas are very well mashed (not chunky). I prefer to use a potato masher.
We love adding a generous spread of my Macadamia Nut Butter on top of this delicious fiber-filled banana loaf, as it pairs so well with it, however, feel free to add whatever topping you prefer, or not! I love this bread so much sometimes I will have a small slice for breakfast along with my Thrive Smoothie if I feel I need a little extra something.
I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! This one is a family favorite and a real healthy keeper. If you follow my ingredient measurements and directions exactly as written below, you will always have the perfect loaf. Enjoy! x
