quick coconut bread-12You might be surprised disgusted to know I have never purchased a slice of Banana Bread in a cafe. If I’m going to pay for an overpriced, stale snack with my coffee, it’s going to be something I wouldn’t make at home. Which doesn’t leave much because I am obsessed with baking. Hence the food blog.

I once saw coconut bread on a menu in a cafe. It came in a loaf and was toasted like banana bread. I carefully studied it in the window, googled then went home to make it. At that time I was quitting sugar. I know, right? We can all be foolish sometimes. I made it with a suitable sugar substitute and I liked what I tasted.

Now that I have wised up, I had a crack at making it without the aforementioned sweetener. And I still really liked what I tasted. Toasty coconut bread that’s a little bit sweet and made for eating with loads of butter. And super speedy to throw together. I even bet you have all the ingredients in your cupboard. Obviously you could make it sugar free if that was your thing. It would still be totally delicious!

    That looks awesome! I did quit sugar for a month but I just ate a LOT of butter. I will be trying this recipe tomorrow because I have a plan to cook lemon curd and this will be the perfect canvas for it!

    This looks and sounds scrumptious! When I make it I think I will sub a little APP flour with coconut flour just to carry through that coconut flavor – will reply with an update…

    …just shared the first slice with my husband and it was a hit! I will be making 2 loaves next time.
    I used 1 1/4 app flour and 3/4 coconut flour.
    Also added 1/3 cup yogurt and 1 tsp coconut extract along with a pinch of salt.
    The batter was the consistency of cookie dough and I was a little worried it would be too dense but it was perfect.
    This recipe would be a treat to add choc. chips and finely chopped almonds for a nice almond joy delight 🙂
    I ended up baking it at 350 F for 55 minutes by the way.
    Thanks for the great recipe!
