?? Best Low Carb Banana Nut Bread Recipe (Keto Friendly & Gluten Free)
This amazingly delicious Low Carb Banana Bread is another variation of my keto nut butter recipes. It’s the same base recipe I use for my Keto Blueberry Muffins for example, but this time made into a beautiful loaf with rich banana flavor and cut into thick nutty slices you’ll LOVE!
Legendary Food’s Chocolate Banana Nut Butter is made with a blend of creamy peanut butter, pieces of ripened banana and delicious chocolate, without all the added sugar! It’s only 2 net carbs per TBSP or 3 net carbs per squeeze pack.
?? Keto Banana Bread Recipe
I doubled my usual recipe to make the banana bread loaf, but you can halve this recipe to make a normal sized batch of banana nut muffins – or just make more muffins, because honestly you can’t have too many of them on hand to enjoy. ??
As is, with the ingredients and amounts below, made into a banana bread loaf and cut into 10 thick/large slices, it comes to:
You could halve this recipe and make a smaller loaf with half the calories/carbs per slice. Or you could cut it into 20 thinner slices to make each slice half the carbs (2.4 each), but I wanted mine to be thick “traditional banana bread” sized slices.
Add a TBSP of real butter to this warm low carb banana bread and you have a delicious and filling meal for under 5 net carbs. ??
You’ll need a loaf-sized silicone mold, or you’ll want to grease a bread pan liberally. I haven’t tried other pans like a glass dish or metal baking pan, so you may find you have to adjust the baking times if you don’t use the same size silicone mold I used – or if you halve the recipe. You could also use a silicone muffin mold and make muffins. I made those too so I’ll share those pictures with you as well.
I found this silicone mold PERFECT for this exact recipe, as it is above, and the entire loaf pops right out with no sticking!
You want to use organic unrefined coconut oil. No bleach or chemicals are used to “refine” the oil so it retains the natural compounds & nutrients. It’s also made from fresh coconut, where refined oil is not.
I will NEVER bake with muffin papers or glass/metal baking dishes again. ??
Without even greasing or spraying it, the loaf popped right out SO easy and so clean!
It was still warm when I popped it out of the silicone loaf mold and still didn’t fall apart. ??
I did let it cool for probably 20-30 minutes first though… but then it was PERFECT to top with butter and enjoy a slice straight out of the oven!
This Low Carb Banana Walnut Bread Turned Out Beautiful & Delicious!
I’ve made this recipe three times already!
I use the Free MyFitnessPal Recipe Calculator to enter in my ingredients based on my own labels and the amounts I use, and the number of servings I make it into, which makes logging your portions super easy.
Like I said, you can halve this recipe or cut yours into 20 thinner slices instead of 10 thick slices, or you can use this recipe (whole or half) to make muffins instead – so you’ll want to enter it yourself based on how you decide to make it.
This exact same recipe makes AMAZING waffles & pancakes too. ??
For muffins, pancakes & waffles I halve the recipe I gave you above. You would leave out the Banana Extract & walnuts too when working with different flavors. For the blueberry muffins & pancakes, I also add 35 grams of diced frozen blueberries.
I used this exact same recipe (halved) to make banana walnut muffins, which turned out just as delicious!
I sprinkled the tops with a pinch of granular Swerve sweetener:
Pro Tip: Mix a teaspoon or two of cinnamon with an equal amount of Granular Swerve and sprinkle over the top of your loaf or muffins the last 2-3 minutes of baking for a nice sweet topping!
The muffins are great for meal prep so you have something delicious, filling & super low carb to grab and enjoy on busy mornings.
I like to warm them up and add a pat of butter. ??
One night though, I was craving chocolate covered cake donuts. ??
So I got a brilliant idea!
I mixed a TBSP of sugar free chocolate chips with a TBSP of butter and just melted those together for 10 seconds at a time until smooth & creamy… and topped my banana nut muffins with that for a DELICIOUS dessert.

The Chocolate Banana nut butter is great by itself too. I’m loving their new squeeze packs, especially for on-the-go or when I’m out hiking. Aaron loves this flavor on sugar free chocolate bars. He’s big on his after-dinner desserts, lol.

I’m asking the same thing about printing. It would be great to not only be able to print your recipes but also your suggestions that you make in an article, but not all the pictures. Love your recipes and info but printing is a nightmare.

The Best Healthy Fast Food Options
Fast-food stores are plentiful and fast food has the reputation of being unhealthy, while an increasing number of large chains are adding more nutritious options to their menus.
Sockets that allow more customization of orders tend to have lower calorie or more feeder selections. However, there are currently healthy options on the menu of the largest fast-food chains.
In this article, we'll look at the overall calorie, fat and saturated fat content to find some of the healthiest options that seven big fast-food chains have to offer.
Note, however, that calories and fat are only two aspects of how healthy a meal is fed. If a person eats only fast food, it is not possible to get the necessary nutrients such as vitamins and fiber.
Sandwich with cheese and vegetables
One person can customize Subway sandwiches to choose healthy fillings.
Metro specialize in deli style sandwiches or "sub". As a person can customize every "sub", Subway can be one of the healthiest healthy fast-food chains.
Some of the best sandwich options are on the Subway's Fresh Fit menu. The 6-inch Turkey Breast sandwich with nine wheat bread contains 250 calories and 3 grams of fat, including 0.5 g of saturated fat.
A healthy vegetarian option, Veggie Delite in nine wheat bread. This "bottom" contains only 2 g calories, does not contain 2 g total fat and saturated fat. It also has one of the lowest sodium levels (salt) compared to other sandwiches.
Subway also offers salads that can be a low-calorie alternative to a sandwich. All salads include lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, onions, cucumbers, green peppers and olives.

2. Taco Bell
Taco Bell is another great fast-food chain with a variety of healthy options. The ability to personalize each order allows people to choose more vegetable-like nutrients.
According to Taco Bell's website, three-quarters of its menus are under 500 calories. Some of the lowest calorie options are the Fresco menu, which uses regular sauce and cheese instead of vegetable based salsa.
One of the healthiest options is Chicken Soft Taco. Each taco contains about 170 calories, 8 g fat, containing only 3 g of saturated fat.
Bean Burrito is a vegetarian option containing 11 g fat, 380 calories, including 4 g of saturated fat.
Vegetarian options are lower in fat than meat options.
Chipotle is a Mexican-style chain that specializes in tacos and burritos. Similar to Subway and Taco Bell, Chipotle allows people to customize their meals to include healthy choices.
Healthy options are burritos or white rice instead of white rice. In a chicken bowl bowl containing fresh tomato salsa and brown rice, there are 415 calories, 13 g fat and 4 g saturated fat.
For a lower calorie, vegetarian option, people can choose a plate of bean curd, brown rice and a sofritas patty with lettuce. It contains 365 calories, 10 g fat and 1.5 g saturated fat. Adding sauce will increase the number of calories.
McDonald's had the reputation of being unhealthy, but they recently reaffirmed themselves to offer a variety of fresh and nutritious ingredients. Some of these changes may be cosmetics, while McDonald's has better options.
Fillet-O-Fish contains 390 calories and 4 g of saturated fat from 19 g of total fat. Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad contains only 320 calories and 6 g of saturated fat from a total of 14 g.
5. Burger King
Burger King is one of the largest burger chains in the United States, but has a limited number of healthy options. But some choices are a little healthier than others.
It contains a normal, simple hamburger, 10 g total fat, 3.5 g saturated fat, and 240 calories. Grilled Chicken Sandwich contains 470 calories, 3.5 g saturated fat and 19 g fat.
BK Veggie Burger can be a healthier option among these examples. Contains 2,5 g of saturated fat, 390 calories and 17 g of fat.
Baked potato with knife, sour cream and cheese filling on plate
Baked potatoes can be a healthy fast-food option.
Wendy is another common fast-food chain that allows people to personalize their orders to make their choices healthier.
The menu of the chain is not abundant in healthy options, but some meals are able to customize to lower the calorie content.
Salads are also available, and if a person chooses some of the half-size salad choices, they can stay below 500 calories.
