I wanted to make a tropical and moist healthy vegan banana bread that would be perfect for summer. I adapted this recipe from my Tropical Balmy Bliss Spelt Muffins. If you are a fan of dense sweet breads you will love this recipe. This is not a light and fluffy bread!

Recipe Ingredients for Summertime Cherry, Banana, Coconut Butter Bread

1.75 cup Organic Spelt Flour
1.5 tsp Leavening Agents, Baking Soda
0.5 Teaspoon Baking Powder
0.5 tsp Sea Salt
0.5 tsp Cinnamon, Ground
0.25 tsp Ginger, Ground
0.25 tsp Nutmeg, Ground
1 serving Now Chia Seeds
4 medium (7" to 7-7/8" long) Bananas
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
2 tbasp Safflower Oil, Refined, Organic
2.2 serving Pure Grade B Maple Syrup
0.25 cup, unthawed Cherries, Sour, Red

Recipe Directions for Summertime Cherry, Banana, Coconut Butter Bread

  1. Directions: Preheat the oven to 350F. Take the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, baking powder, sea salt, spices, chia seeds) and whisk in a large bowl. In a small cup, place 2 tbsp of coconut butter in the microwave for just 10-15 seconds to warm. In a medium sized bowl, add the wet ingredients (banana, coconut butter, maple syrup, sunflower oil), reserving 1 small banana or 1/2 a medium banana for later, and mix very well, making sure to break up the clumps of coconut butter. Now take the banana you set aside and chop into 1 inch chunks. Stir into the wet ingredients. Now add the wet to the dry ingredients and stir until the flour is incorporated. Try not to overmix as spelt flour can become tough with too much mixing. Pour the batter into a pre-greased loaf pan. Take your pitted and chopped cherries and add them on top. Sprinkle with shredded coconut. Bake for approx. 45 minutes or until golden brown. Note: My loaf fell a bit in the centre and wasn?t cooked in the centre, so next time I might cook it longer at a lower temp (perhaps 325F for 60-70 minutes). Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 15 minutes before serving.

  2. Possible substitution ideas:

  3. Sub Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Sunflower Oil

  4. Sub whole wheat or white flour for spelt flour

  5. Sub ground flax for chia seeds

  6. You could also add in pecans or walnuts! I made it without, but they would add a nice crunch!
