Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons Kelapo Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 medium-sized ripe bananas
  • 3/4 cups of milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
  • 1 cup of chopped mixed nuts toasted (I use cashews, almonds, and pecans)
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds for sprinkling on top, for garnish

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven at 350.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the coconut oil and the light brown sugar.
  • Continue to mix as you add in the bananas, then the milk and vanilla. Mix for another 2 minutes. You are looking for a smooth batter.
  • Next, while still mixing, add in the dry ingredients, one tablespoon at a time, making sure each addition is mixed in well before adding the next.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer and fold in the chopped nuts and the coconut flakes.
  • Transfer to a loaf pan and sprinkle the top with sliced almonds.
  • Bake for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and cool on a rack.
  • Cut and serve.
