Triple Coconut Banana Bread
Yield: 1 loaf
  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon coconut extract (optional)
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup greek yogurt
  • ½ cup sweetened, shredded coconut (plus more for sprinkling on top of loaf)
  • 3 medium bananas, mashed
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan, set aside
  2. In a large bowl, stir together the coconut oil and sugar. Add the eggs and vanilla, and whisk together.
  3. Sprinkle the flour, baking soda and salt over the wet ingredients, and gently mix until smooth. Fold in the yogurt, coconut, and bananas.
  4. Spread evenly into the prepared pan- sprinkle with shredded coconut
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 60-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean. If after 25 minutes the coconut is getting too toasty, cover the loaf with foil for the rest of the baking time. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.
