Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 large ripe bananas, mashed
  • ½ cup + 2 tablespoons sweetened flaked coconut
  • 2 tablespoons olive or coconut oil

  • ½ cup of brown sugar
  • 3 egg whites (or 2 eggs)
  • 2-3 tablespoons skim milk
  • 1/4 cup fat free plain greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup orange juice

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda together in mixing bowl. In separate large mixing bowl combine mashed bananas, brown sugar, and vanilla.  Add egg whites or eggs and mix together until smooth. Next add oil. Then, slowly add in flour and combine until moist.

  3. Next add greek yogurt and orange juice.  Depending on the consistency you can add 2-3 tablespoons of skim milk. If you like your bread more dense than omit the milk, but if you like it more airy or lighter you can add it.

  4. Lastly fold in ½ cup of coconut into batter. Pour into greased 9x5 inch loaf pan. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of coconut on top. Bake for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean and the bread is golden brown.

Recipe Notes

Optional: throw in ½ cup of walnuts to batter to help keep you satisfied all morning.

Another option: Substitute ½ cup of regular flour with whole wheat flour.
