Quick breads, Sizzling Tastebuds

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 



  • 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



  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
