Coconut Banana Bread
1/2 cup Vegetable Oil
1 cup Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp Almond Extract
2 1/2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
3 Medium overripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
1 cup Coconut Milk
1 cup Unsweetened Flaked or Shredded Coconut
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
1. Lightly grease a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan and set aside.
2. In a medium sized bowl mix the oil and sugar using a large spoon. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in the vanilla and almond extract.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
4. In a separate bowl, stir together the mashed banana and the coconut milk.
5. Gradually combine the dry ingredients, the oil mixture and the banana mixture into a large bowl, alternating wet ingredients and dry ingredients. Start and end with the dry mixture. Mix until just combined. Stir in the flaked coconut.
6. Pour the batter to the prepared baking pan.
7. Bake for 1 hour – 1 hour and 15 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, make sure to try several spots.
8. Allow to cool, slice and enjoy!
You could also add some chocolate or carob chips for something different, and you could try substituting the oil with 1 cup of Apple Sauce or Prune Baby Food - it will taste pretty much the same.
