Low FODMAP + type 2 diabetic friendly banana bread!


Making banana bread has never been easier or tasted better than this recipe! This quick and simple recipe has clean ingredients and is on the lower-calorie side. Each slice of this bread comes out to around 90 calories if you want a six-serving loaf!

To make this recipe, use ripe bananas instead of a browning banana. Unripe bananas or ones that just turned yellow, have a much lower sugar content than browning bananas. This is because as a banana ripens, it breaks down the fiber carbohydrates and turns them into sugar carbohydrates.

Unripe bananas also have high amounts of healthy bacteria that help our digestion and colon! Unripe bananas have a high amount of resistant starch that stay intact until it reaches your large intestine. When it breaks down in the large intestine, it feeds your good gut bacteria. As a banana ripens, the bacteria and nutrients begin to break down which leads to us not getting the full amount of benefits from a banana. Unfortunately, bananas increase the amount of antioxidants as they ripen but it's a small amount to pay to keep the sugar content lower.

Another huge bonus of using an unripe banana is that it makes the recipe type 2 diabetic friendly! This keeps the blood sugar levels from spiking as much as they would from a browning banana.



• 1 unripe banana

• 1/4 cup brown sugar

• 1/3 cup almond milk

• 2 tsp coconut oil

• 1.5 tsp vanilla extract
