Wonderful bread, Dorothy! I'm not a big fan of coconut and was rather apprehensive about how it would taste in this recipe, but I really wanted to try this because of the easily available ingredients, and also because it is eggless! I used freshly grated coconut and it DID add a fantastic flavour to the bread. I baked for 45 minutes, and after all the aromas wafting through my house, it was hard waiting until the next day to taste it! This tastes great toasted warm, along with a cup of coffee!
I altered this recipe a bit, and it is very tasty and very healthy. These changes will add "extra" fibre. Here are the changes that I made. I substituted half the flour, I used 1/2 cup natural bran, and 1/4 cup of ground flax Instead of the canola oil, I added an extra banana.
This was very good for a fat reduced loaf and very quick to put together. I added half a can of unsweetened apple pie filling, which I chopped up a bit. It made a great addition. I must admit to not waiting until the next day to slice and eat but tryed some straight away while it was still warm, delicious!
I followed the directions to the letter (checked it several times because I thought I'd done something wrong) but this was the worst recipe I've ever gotten off the internet. The bread didn't blend, not enough moisture. Is there a liquid missing? Came out dry & crumbly. Had to throw it away. Quickly threw the recipe away to. Sorry, but it was awful!
A very good recipe. I added some chopped walnuts and sultanas; also a wee splash of sucaryl. The bananas I used had been frozen and were very sloppy when thawed. This helped to bind the mixture together. I think the result may not have been so good if the bananas were quite firm.
I made this for DH to take with him to work for a healthy morning snack. It was a little plain in flavor, but it was still very good. We both enjoyed it. Thanks Derf for posting!
I am trying to eat healthier and although I am not fond of coconut found this loaf delectable.
Pretty good! I also was worried about it being too dry as it took a bit of work to mix the dry & wet ingredients together but it came out rather nice! I had to use sweetened coconut because for some reason it's not available here! I also added some Splenda but next time I think I might add some vanilla. Also used applesauce for the oil. Thanks very much.
Tried this as the recipe directed and i found it very pleasing. Will try it again in the near future. Thanks.
