Coconut Lime Banana Bread

Overripe, squishy, spotty bananas are just banana bread that you haven’t made yet. And since everyone seems to have over ripe bananas at the moment, I thought it’s the perfect time to add a slightly different banana bread recipe.

What you will need –
  1. Bananas – 4 medium, over-ripe
  2. Egg – 1 large
    (For Vegan option – mix 1 tablespoon flaxseed powder with 2.5 tablespoons of water)
  3. Light oil – 2 tablespoons (vegetable/canola)
  4. Light coconut milk – 1/2 cup
    (Sub with any other milk for non-coconut version)
  5. Zest of 1 lime
  6. Lime juice – 3 tablespoons
  7. All purpose flour – 1 cup 
  8. Whole wheat flour – 1/2 cup 
  9. Oat flour – 1/2 cup
  10. Baking powder – 1 teaspoon
  11. Baking soda – 1 teaspoon
  12. Salt – 1/4 tsp
  13. Honey – 1/2 cup (Adjust to taste)
Method –
  1. Preheat oven for 160°C.
  2. Mash together the 4 bananas in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk egg, oil, coconut milk, lime zest and juice, and honey (if you like your bread on the sweet side) into the mashed bananas. Set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix together flours, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  5. Slowly mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients until completely incorporated.
  6. Grease a 9×5 loaf pan with oil/butter. Pour batter into pan. Slice a banana length-wise and top the batter (optional).
  7. Bake for 60-75 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from middle. Let cool on a rack before slicing.

Storage notes –

Once cooled, store in an airtight box in the fridge for up to 5 days.
