Banana Bread

Technically, banana’s are a no-no if you want to remain in ketosis following the LCHF lifestyle as they’re quite high in carbohydrates (a medium banana has about 26 grams of carbs). But if you’re into endurance sports and need something to eat before, during and after training, then this is great. You can also make them into little muffins which are easier to consume ‘on the go’. And remember that these two bananas will be divided up into between about 12 slices/muffins (you get around 12g of carbs per serving according to my fitness pal).
