Grain-Free Banana & Kale Loaf

Keto-friendly, low carb; grain, lectin & gluten-free loaf...this one’s a real winner for you. 

I often have to add some sort of sweetness to my recipes to make them more palatable whilst still being keto and low-carb friendly. The problem I have is that my husband hates Stevia Leaf AND Monkfruit extract, which are the only sweeteners I feel comfortable using.

Enter the banana stage left. HOW is the banana ever witnessed in a keto recipe?

The lovely things that make this high sugar fruit so good for low sugar baking is that alongside its high sugar is its incredibly potent flavour, particularly when teamed with warm spices such as ginger and cinnamon. This means that one small banana goes a heck of a way and in this case, doesn’t add enough to your carb bake to kick the majority “Ketotarian” out of ketosis.
