Bananas on Keto and Paleo

So, let me get this out there first. Bananas are a fruit. They are on the higher end of the carb/sugar spectrum. There is nothing wrong with eating a banana, no matter what diet you follow. It is all in how you eat it.

Our diet fluctuates between Keto and Paleo. We have been doing this long enough that we tend to know when our body needs something and go with it. Now having said that, it does not mean that we eat a banana every day.

We do eat bananas on occasion. But 1 whole banana has 27 grams of carbs and 3 grams of fiber. Which means a banana packs all of the carbs (and more) that I allow myself in one day.

When you use bananas in a recipe that is divided up into 12 servings, it makes the carb count much lower. So, in this instance, the two bananas in this banana bread recipe are divided into 12 servings. The total carb count for 1 serving is 18 and net carbs are 6. That includes the carbs in ALL of the ingredients.

Bananas are good for you

A banana is not a terrible thing. It’s each person’s choice as to whether they want to include them in their diet. And, this Keto Banana Bread recipe is a great way to add bananas to your keto diet.

They are a great source of potassium and they contain powerful antioxidants. They can help lower blood pressure and may reduce the risk of cancer. Plus, they are delicious.

Being diabetic, Grumpy tries to keep his blood sugar under control. However, while many times it is too high, sometimes it drops WAY too low. While high blood sugar is not good for you, neither is low blood sugar.

When Grumpy has a low blood sugar incident, we usually have to give him a higher carb food to consume. So, while we stick low carb, for the most part, we do have to add in higher carb foods once in a while to help regulate his sugar levels.

What you need to make Keto Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips

Bananas: Be sure the bananas are ripe. The skin should be turning brown in spots.

Eggs: Use large-sized eggs.

Cinnamon Flavor Drops

Butter: unsalted butter that has been melted and cooled slightly.

Almond Flour

Coconut Flour

Monkfruit: I use this brand.

Sugar-Free Chocolate Chips: This is my favorite brand.

Make this Keto Banana Bread recipe your way

  • If your Paleo, make it dairy-free and use melted coconut oil in place of the butter.
  • Give it a boost of banana flavor and substitute the cinnamon drops for 1 teaspoon of banana extract.
  • Stir in 1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts or pecans.
  • Swap out the sugar-free chocolate chips for sugar-free white chocolate chips, or use a combination of both.
