This healthy bread skips the heavy sugars and processed oils and uses pure ingredients like bananas, pineapple and toasted coconut.
I love just about anything with fruit, especially pineapple or coconut. Since my family loves when I make homemade breads, I decided to play around and bake up this super-healthy bread recipe perfect for mornings, snacking or even dessert.
Skipping the heavy processed vegetable oils, I used pure raw, organic coconut oil, mashed bananas to sweeten and fresh pineapple juice for a punch of tropical flavor.
Top this bread with a generous amount of shredded coconut before baking, and you will end up with a lovely toasted coconut topping, which adds even more flavor to this easy bread.
