Low Carb Banana Bread {paleo, keto, gluten-free, dairy-free}
  • 2 cups blanched superfine almond flour
  • ¼ cup arrowroot starch (tapioca starch would also work)*
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder (use or make a paleo baking power, if necessary)
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • generous pinch ground nutmeg (optional)
  • 4 small-medium very ripe bananas (or 3 large), mashed well (measures to a bit over 1 cup)
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • ¼ cup ghee, melted (melted coconut oil, avocado oil or melted butter would also work)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a small loaf pan (my pan was 7.5 X 3.5 inches) with parchment paper strips, leaving two inches of overhang on the sides of the pan. Lightly brush or spray the lined pan with oil.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour breaking up any big clumps, arrowroot starch, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the mashed banana, eggs, vanilla and ghee (or coconut oil) until well combined.
  4. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry, slowly. Stir by hand until it is smooth and no clumps of flour remains.
  5. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan. Gently tap the pan on the counter top to distribute the batter and eliminate any air pockets.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 50-60 minutes until it's a nice deep golden brown color on top and set and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. (if the top of the loaf starts to brown too quickly, tent it with foil).
  7. Using the parchment paper strips that overhang, carefully lift up and remove the banana bread from the pan and transfer it to a wire rack to cool. Carefully remove the parchment paper so the bread can cool.
  8. Allow to cool at least 30 minutes. Cut into 10-12 slices, serve and enjoy.
if you wish to skip the arrowroot or tapioca starch, try instead ground golden flaxseed meal
