Lemon, Coconut, Honey and Banana Loaf Recipe

Makes 1 Loaves | Prep Time: 5-10 minutes | Cook Time: 1 hour

coconut oil (dairy-free) or butter ½ cup
honey ½ cup
bananas 3 large ripe, mashed
coconut thread (or shredded coconut) 2 cups
flour (e.g. plain or wholemeal flour) or buckwheat flour (gluten-free) 1 cup
baking powder (check it is gluten-free if you need to) 1 teaspoon
free-range eggs 4
lemons 2, zested
salt 1 pinch

Preheat oven to 180 degC/355 Fahrenheit.

Gently melt honey and coconut oil/butter together in a small pot.

Use a fork to mix mashed bananas, coconut thread, flour, honey mixture, eggs, lemon zest and salt together in a large mixing bowl until well combined.

Pour into a greased loaf tin and bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.

The loaf will keep (unsliced) in an airtight container for up to 5 days. It also freezes well. A slice of this is delicious warmed up and spread with a little butter!
