Dairy & Soy Free Coconut Banana Bread




Dairy And Soy Free Coconut Banana Bread

I’m not too thrilled to include the words ‘dairy & soy free’ with this recipe but I’ve had to eliminate all dairy and soy from my diet because our pediatrician thinks that Piper may have a sensitivity. It’s been 2 weeks that I’ve been off and it wouldn’t be so bad if I didn’t have to cook everything. Don’t get me wrong, I love to cook and eat healthy, fresh meals but with a newborn at home and Austin back at work it’s honestly the last thing I feel like doing! Luckily my family has been spoiling us with meals which has been so helpful and I’ve got a few easy dishes to whip up — my latest fave is a BLT with tomato from our garden and avocado! Anyway – I needed a breakfast treat to enjoy with my coffee after I pump in the morning and found a recipe for coconut banana bread on The Baker Chick that I slightly adapted and it’s SO good. I don’t think I’ll ever make regular banana bread again! So moist and full of flavor, light but filling- the ideal nibble for your mornings!
