Coconut Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

So I realized that my bananas were way past their prime today and decided to make some banana bread with them. Well I also didn’t have any eggs so I had to find a recipe that didn’t need eggs in them. I found this one from Life n Spice Banana Bread. It didn’t call for eggs which is exactly what I needed. However, I did change it up a bit. I added a teaspoon of vanilla, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1 handful of sweetened coconut flakes and a good portion of mini chocolate chips. I wanted to give it a bit more flavor and I think this really added to it. 

Before I stuck it in the oven I sprinkled coconut flakes on top as well. 

Here is the recipe I used:

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup butter softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
A pinch of salt
4 large ripe bananas
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder

1 handful coconut flakes (sweetened)

1 teaspoon vanilla

about  1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips


1. Mash the bananas and keep aside. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C)
2. Mix together butter and sugar in a bowl (I used a mixer)
3. In another bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder and salt
4. Add this to the butter-sugar mixture and combine
5. Add the mashed banana to this and beat together

6. Add the vanilla, coconut flakes and chocolate chips and mix
7. Pour into a greased loaf pan and bake for 40-45 mins
8. Cool on a rack. Remove bread from pan and slice to serve.

Yields: 1 loaf of bread
Preparation time: 15 mins
Baking time: 45 mins
