Baking with bananas is pretty common in our house! I used to eat a whole banana every day, but since going low carb, I don’t eat them anymore. However, my boys and hubby still consume them on a regular basis, so we always have ripe bananas ready to use in baking.

You can check out my list of recipes that include bananas HERE!

But this is the first recipe that doesn’t contain wheat, grains, or sugar!

Even though there isn’t any grains or sugar, you wouldn’t know it by tasting it. This sugar free, grain free banana bread tastes just like regular banana bread and it’s a favourite of my boys.

I must warn you though, when you bake with flours that are grain free, like coconut flour or almond flour, please be aware that it may be a bit more crumbly. The reason is, there is no gluten (aka, “glue”) to hold the flour together. Most recipes with grain free flour rely on eggs to hold it all together.

Make sure to spray your baking pan really well with coconut oil, otherwise half of your bread will be left in the pan..not that I would know from experience or anything 😉

Overall, this bread is delicious! And I love that it doesn’t have ANY sugar added to it but still tastes great.

How do you spray with coconut oil? Is that something you buy?

Yes, it’s made by Spectrum Naturals. It’s a coconut oil cooking spray!
