I developed this recipe for a friend who's father was diagnosed with diabetes and missed banana bread. It's about 6 grams of net carb per slice -- higher than some of my other recipes because it has actual banana in it, but way lower than most banana breads.
This is one of my most popular recipes. It is easy to make - just mix it up and bake it flat in a sheet pan. Each piece has less than a gram of usable carb, plus 5 grams of fiber. Breakfast idea: a piece of flax toast topped with a little cheese, bacon or ham, and a couple of eggs on top. There's also a link to a video to show you how to make it.
