Ingredients Needed to Make this Banana Coconut Bread

Bananas

Of course, you will need some ripe bananas to make banana bread. If your bananas aren’t ripe, check out my tip below on how to get them ready for banana bread in 30 minutes!

In the Pantry

From the pantry, you will need shredded sweetened coconut, canned coconut milk (full fat is best), vegetable or canola oil, sugar, and all-purpose flour.

From the Spice Cabinet

Grab some salt, baking soda, baking powder, coconut extract, and vanilla extract.

From the Fridge

All you need from the fridge are eggs, unless you have chickens then they probably aren’t in your fridge…LOL!

How to Make Banana Bread with Coconut Milk

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and prepare a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan with butter.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, add the ripe bananas, shredded coconut, and coconut milk and blend with a hand mixer on low for about 1 minute.
  3. In another large mixing bowl, beat the oil and sugar together. Add the eggs, coconut, and vanilla extracts and continue beating until smooth. Set the bowl aside.
  4. In a third bowl, add the flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda and stir together with a whisk or fork.
  5. Add half of the dry ingredients to the egg mixture and stir to combine with a spatula. Add half of the banana coconut mixture and continue mixing. Add the rest of the dry ingredients and then the rest of the banana mixture and stir just until combined.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

How to Freeze and Use Ripe Bananas

Anytime I have ripe bananas on my counter, I throw them in the freezer for later. When you are ready to use them, you can place them in the fridge to thaw or zap them in the microwave for 1 minute to soften enough to use for baking.
