We know the recipe sounds weird. Why add anything to banana bread but chocolate chips? That’s our typical go-to. But we had sliced almonds and shredded coconut on hand, and it made for an incredibly sweet, rich, and textured banana bread. We’re excited to share it with you!
- 1/2 cup butter room temperature
- 2 cups sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup almond milk
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 3 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3 bananas mashed
- 1 cup sliced almonds (split)
- 1 cup sweet coconut, shredded (split)
- 2 loaf pans, greased
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prep two large loaf pans by greasing.
Beat butter and sugar until creamy.
Add eggs, almond milk, and vanilla and stir until combined.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
Add dry ingredients to wet slowly.
Follow immediately by adding mashed bananas.
Mix just until combined.
- Add in 1/2 cup sliced almonds, and 1/2 cup shredded coconut.
Pour into prepared pans.
Sprinkle a layer of sliced almonds on top, and lightly sprinkle some shredded coconut on top. This adds extra texture and makes the bread very photogenic!
Bake for 60 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
Let cool in pans, remove, serve, and enjoy!
You’ll have to let us know if you end up baking this tasty treat!
