STORAGE TIPS

Room Temperature – The best way to store keto banana bread is to wrap it in plastic wrap or paper towel and place it in a Ziploc bag or airtight container. This will keep it moist. It can be left out for up to 4 days at room temperature.

Before wrapping it, make sure it has completely cooled because condensation that occurs in the container will cause mold to grow extremely quickly.

Please be aware that covering it with plastic wrap will help to preserve some of the moisture. Any extra moisture created in the container will be absorbed if you choose to cover it in paper towel, which will keep it from getting soggy.

Fridge – You can store it in the fridge if you need to keep it for more than a few days. Just wrap it in plastic wrap to help keep it moist, because the fridge will quickly dry it out. Warm it up in the microwave for a few seconds before eating.

Freezer – Keto banana bread keeps really well in the freezer just as long as it is wrapped in plastic wrap and placed in an airtight container or Ziploc bag. After wrapping it in plastic wrap, you can add a second layer of protection by wrapping it in foil. It will last for up to 3 months.

    This banana bread is delicious. How ever it is not KETO. Bananas have way to many carbs for keto😯

    1. Hi Linda,
      I am happy you enjoyed the recipe. Yes, I know that bananas are not keto, but like many other recipes out there this recipe is great for those who are not on a strict keto diet. It is great for those who want to restrict their carbs and still be able to indulge in some banana bread. This recipe currently has 7 carbs per slice (14 slices total) When you use 3 bananas, 5 carbs for 2 bananas and 3 carbs for 1 banana. Please also note that I use Kirkland Almond flour which has 2 carbs per 1/4 cup. If you use an almond flour which has 1 carb, then the carb ratio for this recipe will be less. If you want it to be completely clean keto, then you can use pure banana extract. I have never used it before, but I know others have. If you do choose to use it in this recipe, I would suggest a tsp per banana replaced. You may also need to adjust the amount of liquid in the recipe to compensate for omitting the bananas. I hope this helps.
