Ingredient Notes

Ingredients needed for banana bread with no sugar and no flour.

Mashed banana. The riper the bananas the better! You’ll need about 2 large bananas for this recipe.

Granulated monk fruit. This natural calorie free sweetener tastes amazingly like sugar when you use it in baked goods. If you prefer, you can swap it for your other favorite sugar substitute.

Almond flour. Not to be confused with almond meal (which has a grainer texture), this nut flour is fine with a pale color. It gives the banana bread the perfect light crumb!

Easy Instructions

To make sugar free Banana Bread, start by beating mashed banana with eggs, monkfruit and vegetable oil.

Next, you’ll add vanilla, cinnamon, salt and baking powder. Stir in the almond flour until just combined.

Transfer one third of the batter to a separate bowl. Stir in cocoa powder.

Pour half of the plain batter into a buttered loaf pan. Spoon the chocolate banana bread batter on top. Add the remaining plain batter on top of that.

Bake for about 50 minutes, until baked through.

Tips and Tricks

  • Let the Banana Bread cool completely before slicing and serving. If it’s still warm, it’ll break apart when you try to slice it.
  • For more chocolate flavor, add another tablespoon of cocoa powder to the chocolate batter.
  • Chopped pecans or walnuts would be a delicious addition to this bread!

Recipe FAQs

How do you store Sugar Free Banana Bread?

Store this bread in an airtight container in the refrigerator. It’ll stay moist and tasty for up to 5 days.

I want to add nuts to my banana bread. How much should I add?

If you want to add nuts, I’d use about 1/2 cup to start with. Fold them in to the batter before baking.

Do you mash the bananas before adding them to the batter?

For this recipe, I prefer to mash the bananas first. If you use electric beaters to combine the wet ingredients, you could also just add the bananas whole and mash them as you go.

Can I make this recipe with a different kind of flour?

I have not tested our Sugar Free Banana Bread recipe with other gluten free flours. Almond flour has the perfect texture and protein ratio for this recipe. If you try it, let us know how it turns out!
