Casual Baking: Vegan Toasted Coconut Bread

I am always trying out new banana bread recipes, it is a breakfast classic. Out of all the recipes I have tried, I fell in love Dassana Amit’s recipe on Veg Recipes of India. This blog is an amazing place for vegetarian dishes that will satisfy any craving and I highly recommend you support them. After eating a few loaves, I decided to try my own take on Dassana Amit’s marvelous recipe.

coconut

  • 3 ripe bananas (the darker the better)
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup coconut oil (grapeseed oil if you want a less sweet loaf)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • a pinch of salt
  • a handful of coconut shreds for topping

 

Local

As soon as the sun rises on Monday morning, I am smiling at the thought of visiting the farmers market. There is something special about connecting with the people that grow the food you are about to purchase. It is a practice I love to stress when I am picking up ingredients baking; produce and grains grow in New York. If you are around a market, stop by and treat yourself to a conversion and fresh produce.
