Coconut kissed Chocochip Vegan bread

"Another banana recipe?",  asked my kid ..   She isnt allergic to banana based bakes, but still wanted to be sure. Wait and watch , said mamma. So, she watched me bake.

In went the bananas, the flour, oil and lastly the chocochips (I could hear her squealing with delight at the last ingredient)

She waited, smelt it while baking, and jumped in joy when I handed over the first piece. One of the few recipes I wished I could reserve some for myself to eat on the sly.

Adapted from Magpie's recipe , this was one of the best ever quick breads that all of them loved, and asked for seconds AND thirds .If you like coconut based bakes like me , trust me this would be a lovely healthy treat. This also makes for a great gift option during holiday season. 

So, lets go and make it then.

Baking Marathon Day 22 : Coconut kissed Chocochip Vegan bread
Recipe type : Quick breads
Course: snack
Prep time : 10 mins | Bake time : 25 mins
Makes a 9*5 loaf, stays for 1 day on the countertop. Refrigerate, and micro for 15 secs before slicing the next day 



Ingredients:
  • Wholewheat flour - 1 cup
  • Maida - 1/2 cup
  • Bananas (ripe) - 2 medium
  • Sunflower oil - 1/2 cup (used about 2 TBSP more)
  • Vegan Choco chips - a handful ( i was looking for a vegan recipe to use these, and they were so good :-))
  • Dessicated coconut - 1/2 cup
  • Brown sugar - 1/2 cup
  • Baking powder - 2 tsp
  • Salt - 1/4 tsp
  • Baking soda - 1/2 tsp
  • Water - 4 TBSP
  • Banana / vanilla essence - 1/4 tsp
  • Grated nutmeg - 1/8 tsp




Method:
  1. Sieve the flours with baking powder , salt, nutmeg powder and soda. In another bowl, mash up the banana with a fork. Add sugar and oil and cream it well (I used a balloon whisk).
  2. Preheat oven to 180 C / 375 F.
  3. Add coconut to the flour and mix once . Now add this to the wet mixture, add water little by little to make a thickish but flowing batter. Add the chocochips at the end , reserving half for the topping. 
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared baking mould. 
  5. Bake for 25-30 mins till done (I generally increase the bake time by 5 mins for wholewheat flour, and reduce the temp by 5 deg towards the end to prevent burning).
  6. Cool ,cut and serve
