Organic Coconut Flour Banana Bread

Fact: I love banana bread. Who doesn’t anyway?

Since Tashi and I had started on ketogenic diet in December, we have been good in staying away from food high in carbohyrdates.  Thankfully, it’s not so difficult to find low-carb recipes. I utilize the free information provided by the internet and has been fortunate in finding recipes shared by people who are also on the same diet.

Here’s the recipe of low-carb banana bread as shared by Radiant Life:
