This low carb banana and blueberry bread is sweetened only by the blueberries and banana, plus it is also gluten and dairy free.
I am a big fan of banana bread!
But never with blueberries.... until now!
This low carb banana and blueberry bread is sugar free!! The only sweetness comes from the fruit - the blueberries and banana! So it is perfect for anyone on a low carb diet.
However, if you want a bit of extra sweetness, simply add ¼ cup of pure maple syrup to the recipe.
WHAT YOU NEED
- Ripe bananas
- Coconut oil
- Vanilla extract
- Cinnamon powder
- Guten free baking powder
- Almond meal
- I recommend using a silicon loaf pan. You will save yourself a bit of time by not having to grease the pan and then line it with baking paper. They are ideal if you are short on time. I use the Wiltshire which you can buy from your major supermarkets.
- It takes approximately 60 minutes to bake. But always check with a skewer to make sure the bread has cooked through.
This banana and blueberry bread will make the perfect breakfast or snack and I have included the nutrition content at the end of the recipe.
