Banana Bread – Low Carb

My oldest son has always loved banana bread and ordered it a lot when we would eat out.

Unfortunately, in spite of it’s healthy type of name, commercial banana bread has usually the highest amount of sugar of anything available in a café. So I started looking for a recipe that tasted good but also no longer had the sugar issue. This low-carb option was found on the very well website and it is great.

Using Stevia as a sugar substitute is a good option, just remember using a dry granulated form will add dryness to whatever you are using it for, so often a liquid is a better option.

This bread has 6 grams of net carb per slice so it is great for those watching intake.

Enjoy!
