This keto banana bread uses REAL banana, and has no artificial ingredients. It’s a moist, delicious, low carb bread with turmeric for extra nutritional benefits and a beautiful golden hue!



  • 2 cups fine blanched almond flour (I use Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 2 tbsp sifted coconut flour
  • 1/4 tsp kosher or sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • optional: 1/4 cup monk fruit sweetener
  • 1/4 cup golden Flaxseed meal  (ground flax seed)
  • 5 large eggs, at room temp and whisked
  • 1 frozen small banana (thawed or heated, then mashed in a bowl. Keep the juice as well)
  • 1.5 tsp Apple cider vinegar or lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp melted clarified butter or refined coconut oil, divided. Non dairy butter may also be used.
  • 1/2 tbsp cinnamon, plus extra for topping
  • 1 tsp ground turmeric (more if desired)
  • optional topping – toasted chopped nuts and/or banana slices (omit banana topping if needed)
  • Extra melted coconut oil or butter for brushing to top of the bread


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F. Line the bottom of an 8×4-inch loaf pan with parchment paper and grease the sides.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together almond flour, coconut flour, salt, baking soda, and flaxseed meal. Be sure to remove any clumps that might be in the almond flour or coconut flour.
  3. Add the sugar, turmeric, and cinnamon. Whisk again.
  4. In another small bowl, whisk the eggs. Combine the eggs with the flour mixture, then add in the mashed banana with the liquid and gently combine.
  5. Add in the apple cider vinegar, vanilla, and melted butter and mix gently to combine.
  6. Pour batter into the greased loaf pan. Optional: Add sliced banana (1/2 banana) on top. Brush with melted butter and sugar free syrup, pinch of turmeric and cinnamon, if desired.
  7. Place bread pan in preheated oven on center rack for 35- 45 minutes. If the center is not set, then cover with foil, rotate pan, and bake an additional 5-10 minutes.
