There’s one thing that a few spotty bananas sitting in the fruit bowl just screams… Banana Bread! The great thing about this banana bread is it only uses two bananas and no other sweetener, so the final result is actually very low in sugar!

Two Banana Bread

There’s one thing that a few spotty bananas sitting in the fruit bowl just screams… Banana Bread!

I’ve had a love/ hate relationship with bananas… Back in the day of my fruit frenzy days, I didn’t go a day without eating a banana – I used to eat one for breakfast every morning, either in the form of a vegan protein smoothie or overnight oats topped with fat-free yoghurt and chopped banana… Oh how times have changed (read more about my diet shift here). Now I don’t even eat breakfast, and if I did, it certainly would not be something sweet and sugary like I used to eat.

Back to la banane. When I made said diet shift… I pretty much gave up most fruit and not because I thought it was unhealthy, but after reducing the carbs and upping the fats and nourishing proteins I genuinely no longer craved fruit. If I did I’d eat some! Fast forward a few years and I now eat more fruit… I enjoy berries, apples, kiwis and peaches depending on what’s in season but I always have it later in the day (afternoon or after dinner) as that’s when I feel like it.

Bananas are a fruit naturally higher in sugar so not something I have every day but love to enjoy from time to time, and banana bread is delicious so I like to enjoy that too. The great thing about this banana bread is it only uses two bananas and no other sweetener, so the final result is actually very low in sugar! If you are low carb are keto-ish, it’s totally fine to eat things like this. I love using naturally sweet ingredients so you don’t need to add anything and this is a perfect example of how to do so.
