Keto Banana Bread and Muffins

Since my kids were very young, I have made muffins for them – for breakfast, to pack in their lunch boxes and for after school treats — they have a long list of favorites that I’ve slowly started to make keto. The keto blueberry muffins are a huge hit, and I’ll often make my keto zucchini bread in muffin tins for a portable treat. I recently had a batch of bananas that needed to be used, but bananas are extremely high in carbs, so I was going to just make a traditional banana bread for the family and not indulge but so many of you have asked me for keto banana bread or keto banana muffins, that I decided to try to make a low carb banana bread.

Because bananas come in at around 27 grams of carbs each, they are tricky to incorporate into a keto diet. So, in this recipe, I used just half of a VERY RIPE banana (the riper, the more flavorful) and a banana emulsion – which enhances the banana flavor more than extract, though banana extract also works well!

I also love walnuts, so I include them for texture, but you can leave them out – either way, this keto banana bread will become a family favorite! And, these slices of banana bread or keto banana muffins come in at just 3g of net carbs each!
