Fat Free February: Zero sugar Keto protein power bread for weight loss

Hi guys! After finishing my No Junk January weight loss challenge, let's keep going with Fat Free February! Not fat free as in zero fat; if the keto diet has taught me anything about weight loss, it's that eating "good fat" MUFA, PUFA and even some saturated fats in meat, avocados and coconut oil, burns stored fat (white adipose tissue). The trick is balancing fiber, protein and fats. So, here's a keto diet recipe for zero added sugar (and no sugar substitutes either) keto protein power bread. 

Part of how I lost 100 pounds, without gastric bypass was to satisfy that craving for sweets with revamped diet versions of favorite recipes. And I looove sweet breads. Not intestines, but literally sweet dessert bread, like banana bread. This keto protein bread combines high fiber metabolism boost, with natural fruit sweeteners, date goodness and nut and seed fat blast. 

Keto protein bread for weight loss


Two cups almond flour

1/2 tsp Himalayan salt

2 tsp baking soda

1 cup crushed mixed nuts (this is by way of being a leftover use up recipe for stale nuts)

2 T chia seeds

chopped Medjool or other dates

6 T milled flaxseed (sub for eggs)

2 ripe mashed bananas

1 c. homemade sugarfree applesauce (basically just stewed milled apples)

1 c. Greek yogurt

dash of vanilla

Mix first seven dry ingredients and blend last 4 moist ingredients separately, then mixed together. Fold in 1 cup berries (blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, cranberries or blackberries). Taste batter and if not salty enough, add a little more salt. Turn into two bread pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 325 degrees for 55 minutes or so. I eat this for breakfast. 

Did I mention this zero sugar keto bread is heart healthy, for Valentine's Day? Stay tuned to this blog on how I lost 100 pounds, for more calorie restricting diet recipes. Here's to Fat Free February weight loss!
