Tahini-Coconut Banana Bread
While it might surprise you that you don’t need to add the dry and wet ingredients separately, trust us on this one. This bread comes out of the oven with a tender texture and rich, but balanced, flavor. Because the only sweetener added is the mashed banana, the bread delivers banana flavor without being overly sweet. It’s also a blank canvas for additions like chopped walnuts, toasted seeds, or (our fave) dark chocolate chips.

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan with coconut oil (or butter).
  2. In a large bowl, combine banana, tahini, coconut oil, eggs, and vinegar and stir until smooth.
  3. Add almond flour, almond meal, 1/4 cup of the coconut, baking soda, baking powder, and ground cinnamon and stir until just combined. Stir in nuts, seeds, and/or chocolate chips, if using.
  4. Pour mixture into prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons of shredded coconut over the top. Bake until the top is browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes to 1 hour.
  5. Cool before serving… if you can wait. 😉
