Helpful Recipe Tips
- Be careful with the banana extract. We can’t have banana’s on keto. Even a little bit has many carbs. But, going overboard with the extract will make your keto banana bread taste fake and artificial. There’s enough in the directions for a hint of banana that’s not overpowering.
- Why vanilla and banana extract? The vanilla helps because it brings the vanilla flavor but also helps curve any chemical taste that the banana extract may have with it.
How To Store
Keto banana bread can be frozen for later in an airtight container or vacuum sealed. However, you may want to leave it on the counter instead of the refrigerator but I advise storing the bread in the fridge. This will allow it to last well over a week instead of just 2-3 days on the countertop.

Due to the high sugar content and starch bananas are no a OK food for keto. Which is why in this recipe extract is used carefully to give the best banana flavor possible.
Could I add ripe bananas to this recipe?
Yes you could but that will make it more paleo than keto friendly. If you were to use real bananas I’d say just add one or two ripe bananas to the existing recipe.

Please customize the recipe to your liking. I believe in providing a solid base for any recipe that you are interested in. Chocolate chip banana bread sounds amazing and possible a new recipe!

Unlike this keto recipe with only 4g net carbs a slice with 7 slices a regular version would be way more than that. They add ripe bananas along with floured sugar which are all carbohydrates.
