Coconut Bread Recipe

Fat Mum Slim /

I make this all the time, and it never disappoints. It’s super easy, I always have everything in the pantry, and it’s so dang delicious that my taste buds thank me. ? Recipe here!

Can I see a raise of hands from those of you who have tried coconut bread? It’s like banana bread, only less banana-y and slightly more coconut-y. I’m a big fan. Huge even. This coconut bread recipe is from Bill Granger, who is the king of all things perfectly delicious.

You can easily make this recipe ahead, because it’s best cut into thick slices, toasted and then served with butter melting all over it, and sprinkled with a little icing sugar. I like it for a breakfast treat when we’re with friends {or family at Christmas time}. Just know that once you try it, you’re probably going to be hooked.

Don’t say I didn’t warn you. ?

  • Yum! I’m a bit obsessed with all things coconut right now, so this recipe is perfectly timed! I’ve made banana and coconut bread before but this loaf looks the business! Yumbo!

  • You’ve sold it to me! Might give it a burl today 🙂

    .. sounds and looks delicious…. Mum and hubby won’t eat coconut and I’m watching my weight so this will be on my ‘I Don’t Think So’ list. Even if I froze it I’d know it was there and I would eat too much of it.. a bit sad eh.. .. but that’s me.. ….. hugs… Barb xxxx

    Oh wow. I used to make this recipe all the time around 10 or more years ago before kids and the inevitable switch to banana bread. So delicious. My favourite is topped with lime marmalade.
