Yumminess: Coconut Banana Bread

1 May



Dense. Moist. Coconut-y. Vegan.

I know people sometimes get put off when you mention a baking recipe that contains no eggs or butter. But even if you are not vegan… this recipe truly does not disappoint. Seeing as before making my switch to veganism I was quite well-versed in many different types of baked goods that contained eggs and dairy, I am being completely unbiased when I tell you it is worth your attention.

Fuck it. It’s just good. So how about you just make it and eat it. Okay?



  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice OR cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup shortening (can use margarine as well)
  •  cup of brown sugar
  • 3 medium bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup almond milk (I used vanilla almond milk; coconut milk works well too)
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2-3/4 cup shredded coconut
  1. Mix together the almond milk and vinegar in a small bowl; set aside.
  2. Preaheat the oven at 350 degrees. Lightly grease a non-stick loaf/cake 9″x12″pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, combine together the flour, baking soda, salt and spice.
  4. In another bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar. Add the banana, vanilla, and milk/vinegar mixture.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture. Fold in the coconut and stir until just combined.
  6. Pour the batter in the pan and bake for about 35-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean. (Large range because it REALLY depends on your oven!!)
  7. Remove the pan from the oven and let it cool for 10-15 minutes. Then transfer the bread from the pan to a cooling rack and let it cool completely before slicing. (NOTE: this bread is the fucking best if it is left to sit overnight.)
  8. Eat entire loaf of banana bread in one sitting, and then repeat steps 1-7.

    What, no dates in there? (When I looked at the picture I thought it had dates… also, you know, aren’t those the vegan baking stereotype? For good reason–they are delicious.)

      Nope! Though, I do use them in lots of other stuff. Very versatile and delicious.
