Sugar Free Queen Keto Banoffee Bread. 3g carbs.
Banoffee Bread? Never heard of this! What on earth is it?
Looks like a cake. Has the texture of bread. Tastes like a moist, semi-sweet bread, drenched with silky caramel. A truly unique hybrid delight, made with real banana.
How to Make Sugar Free Queen Keto Banoffee Bread
The most important thing is to use very ripe bananas. Leave them on a sunny window sill until the’ve become squishy soft and their skin has turned almost totally brown. You’ll need 125g of flesh, from either 1 large or 2 small bananas. When ready to make my banoffee bread, simply weigh the pulp you need and mash it with a fork.
Whisk eggs, add sweeteners, whisk again, add oil, whisk again, add all other ingredients (pre-sifted and combined), whisk once more, then incorporate mashed banana. Pour the batter into a small silicone mould of your choice. If using a loaf mould, it should be 1 lb size. As I started to make my latest banana bread on a beautifully sunny spring day, I thought it would be nice to bake it in a vernal-inspired mould, so I could prettify it with a centre flower. The recipe box ↓ has links to the same mould, in case you love it as much as I do.
Bake the bread, let it cool completely, then make the most delicious caramel ever, following the recipe instructions.
All that remains to do is to cool the caramel until it reaches a thick-but-pourable consistency, then drizzle it all over your banana bread. Don’t worry if the caramel runs down the sides and onto the bottom of your cake holder. It is easy to mop up with each cut slice.
“Banana is Not Keto!”
The ‘it’s not keto” statement is a bit of a pet peeve of mine. Way too many people read keto food lists intended to offer guidance, and interpret them as some sort of definitive yes and no, suddenly becoming keto police and castigating anyone who dares to challenge the dogma.
What the self-righteous brigade fails to do is apply logic and common sense. Ketosis is a metabolic process . It cannot possibly discern between the carbs in blueberries and bananas, or almonds and pistachios, or British whipping cream and lactose-free dairy milk (same carbohydrate content – UK data). Eat a bowl-full of blueberries or almonds, and you will most certainly exceed your carbohydrate limit. Eat a few pistachio nuts and take a banana bite, on the other hand, and you’ll still be well within that limit. A gram of digestible carbohydrates is the same, no matter which food it’s from!
Now. When it comes to optimal food choices in terms of health and nutritional value, of course there are some foods that really shouldn’t be touched with a barge-pole, such as sugar, gluten, yeast, maltitol, wheat, soy, and cheap seed oils. That’s because they’re either inflammatory, or microbiome disrupters, or insulin drivers, or laden with harmful pesticides, or manufactured using toxic processes.
But that’s a completely different story and applicable to every dietary lifestyle, not just keto. So, go right ahead and indulge in this delicious treat, without regrets!
