This in an undeniably delicious banana bread recipe! The coconut adds the perfect hit of sweetness!


  • 1 1/2 cups sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup mashed ripe banana (2 to 3 medium bananas)
  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, in its liquid state
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Spay a 9×5 loaf pan with nonstick spray. Line the bottom and up the short sides with parchment paper and spray again. Set aside.
  3. In a nonstick skillet over medium-low heat toast the coconut until it becomes lightly golden. Remove from the heat immediately. Set aside.
  4. Whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a large bowl.
  5. Mix together the eggs, banana, coconut oil,and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and stir to combine.
  6. Stir in the coconut and pour into the prepared pan.
  7. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Allow the bread to cool in the pan for 15 minutes and then remove from the pan using the parchment paper and place on a wire rack to cool completely.


You can enjoy this bread immediately, but I actually prefer it the next day.
So after it’s cooled, wrap it tightly in cling wrap and and store it at room temperature overnight.
