Chai Spiced Coconut Banana Bread

One of my all time favourite breads is banana bread, especially Chai Spiced Coconut Banana Bread. Before moving to Daydream Island, I used to bake lots of it in my kitchen and loved to vary the ingredients depending on how I felt or the result I wanted to achieve.

We always seemed to have a couple of bananas sitting in the fruit bowl on the counter ripening, and eventually, blackening into those sweet little gems that make for the very best banana bread. I suggest you pop your bananas in the fridge for a week before making this gluten and dairy free yummy so that they get extra black, because the darker they get, the more sweet they become, so be sure to keep that in mind the next time you think your bananas are too far gone for human consumption.

This Chai Spiced Coconut Banana Bread Rocks! I love it because it’s so simple to make and it’s yummy on it’s own or pimped out with all sorts of delicious toppings such as nut butter, smashed banana and organic yoghurt or ricotta and honey. It works with a cuppa or even a green smoothie for breakfast.

And what’s not to love about all the health benefits too. Bananas are energy food and a great source of potassium, they offer essential minerals for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function. They add moisture and natural sweetness to the bread, which means you don’t need as much sugar or oil. Coconut flour is loaded with soluble fibre that is great for healthy digestion and also helps to lower cholesterol. The macadamia nut oil is a delicious source of monounsaturated fats that can help support good health and wellbeing too.

I’d love to know, what’s your all time favourite bread? Do you pimp your banana bread out? Or prefer it on it’s own?
