Low Carb PB Banana Bread
- 2 TBSP Almond milk
- 1 tsp Lemon juice
- 1 c Almond Flour
- ⅓ c Flavored Pb Co – Banana Nut Bread powder (32 grams)
- 2 TBSP Swerve (or sweetener of choice)
- 2 TBSP Cinnamon
- 1 tsp Baking powder
- 1 tsp Salt (optional)
- ½ tsp Xantham gum
- 3 Eggs, separated
- 1 1/2 tsp Banana extract
- 1 tsp Butter flavor extract
- 1/4 c Almond milk
- ¼ c Walnuts (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 9×5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper, so that the paper hangs over two opposite sides (for easy removal later).
- In a medium bowl, add lemon juice to almond milk. Set aside for at least 10 minutes and then stir so it thickens (similar to buttermilk).
- In a separate large bowl, mix together the almond flour, banana nut bread powder, xantham gum, baking powder, swerve, cinnamon, and salt (if using).
- Mix the egg yolks, banana and butter flavor into the almond “buttermilk” mixture.
- Pour the dry ingredients into the wet and combine. Add 1/4 c almond milk and mix thoroughly. Beat on low setting with a mixer until a dough/batter forms. Add half the walnuts, if using.
- In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until the form stiff peaks. Fold the egg whites into the batter gently until fully combined.
- Transfer the batter into the lined loaf pan and press evenly to make a smooth top. Optional, sprinkle the top with chopped walnuts and press them lightly into the surface.
- Bake for 50-60 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
- Cool completely before removing from the pan and slicing. (The longer you let it sit before slicing, the better it will hold together. The next day is ideal, if you can wait that long.) Enjoy!
You can use any other nuts in this recipe or add in sugar free chocolate chips (like Lily’s). A pinch of nutmeg could also be added. If you don’t have a loaf pan, you can also distribute the batter in a muffin tin. We like to enjoy our banana bread with Banana Foster flavored coffee from Ocean City Coffee.
1/8 of the loaf has roughly 94 calories, 6g carbs, 6.7g fat and 4.3g protein. This is an estimate and based off my entry of the ingredients into My Fitness Pal and includes the walnuts in the calculation.
