Chocolate Coconut Banana Bread (Vegan)

Chocolate Coconut Banana Bread.  Who doesn’t like a nice slice of homemade banana bread?  Just the smell of it baking makes my mouth water.  I have several healthy banana bread recipes on my blog already, but I had never combined banana, chocolate and coconut together.

I finally combined those flavors making this chocolate banana bread.  This healthy chocolate coconut  banana bread is oil free and has very little added maple syrup.

I use 3 VERY ripe bananas which helped add a natural sweetness to this.  Needless to say, ours was gone in just 2 days!

Using the extra rip bananas helped keep this bread nice and moist without the addition of oil.  This super easy banana bread recipe is vegan and gluten free.

You could even make a double batch and freeze some.  It freezes very well.  I hope you enjoy it.

White Chocolate Banana Bread

I have made you some white chocolate banana bread!  After I became vegan, I thought anything white chocolate was out of my reach.  Sure there are a couple vegan white chocolate chip brands out there, but most of those contain unwanted ingredients. 🙁 So I had to create my own “white chocolate.”  As you probably already know, white chocolate goes so well with banana bread.  This white chocolate banana bread is super delicious.

Copycat Banana Bread Larabar Bites


I think my husband’s favorite is the Chocolate Brownie.  This banana bread recipe took me two tries to get right.

I wanted to change it up, so this time I rolled them into bite sized balls instead of bars.  I got about 20-25 bites out of this batch.
