- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
- 2 large ripe bananas, mashed
- 1/2 cup grated coconut
- 150 g premium dark chocolate chips
Grease and flour a 9" by 5" loaf pan.
Beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
Beat in eggs, incorporating well.
Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg together over batter.
Blend flour mixture into batter.
Stir in mashed bananas.
Mix in coconut and chocolate chips.
Bake in pre-heated oven at 350°F until centre of cake is dry (50-60 minutes).
This bread will mostly likely crumble if you attempt to serve it fresh out of the oven -- but so what? That's when it tastes best!
Any portion not consumed immediately should be allowed to cool in the pan, then slice into single serve portions, wrap each portion in plastic wrap, and store in a cool, dry place. (NOT the refrigerator!)
