Cooking Time55 min

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed (optional)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup virgin coconut oil, melted (or you can use melted unsalted butter)
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup (about 3) very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup shredded raw (unsweetened) coconut
  • 1/2 cup raw chopped nuts: pecans, walnuts or almonds

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
     
  2. In a mixing bowl, add the flours, flax seed, salt and baking powder. Stir with a whisk until combined. Set aside.
     
  3. In another mixing bowl, beat together the coconut oil (or butter) and brown sugar just until combined.
     
  4. Beat in the eggs and then the mashed bananas and vanilla. Add the flour mixture on low speed, mixing just until combined. Do not over mix.
     
  5. Gently fold in the shredded coconut and chopped nuts.
