Step by Step Instructions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 1-pound loaf pan with parchment paper, letting it fold over the sides for easier removal.

Step 2

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add the butter and cane sugar and mix on low until combined and there are no chunks of butter. Then, add the bananas and mix to combine.

Add the eggs, coconut milk, flour, coconut, baking powder, and sea salt in that order and mix on low until combined.

Add the mini chocolate chips and mix to combine.

Step 3

Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and spread out evenly. Top the batter with coconut.

Bake for 1 hour 45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow to cool completely in the baking pan. (If you're baking at high altitude, be sure to check the Notes at the bottom of the recipe for high altitude baking instructions).

Easy Substitutions

  • You can use regular size chocolate chips in place of minis if you prefer.
  • If you only have wide flake coconut, that will work too. But just beware, you'll have large pieces of coconut.
  • Feel free to use regular milk in place of coconut milk. You won't have as much coconut from the milk, but it will still be delicious!

FAQ's

Do I need a mixer?

No, you don't need a stand mixer to make this recipe. You can use a bowl and wooden spoon if you don't have a mixer! Just be sure your butter is really soft, and break up the banana into small pieces or mash it with a fork ahead of time, this will help ensure all ingredients are mixed evenly when mixing by hand.

Can I make this gluten free?

Yes! There is a note at the bottom of the recipe to make this gluten free. I recommend using the gluten free flour that I test recipes with, the Namaste Organic Perfect Flour Blend. The Notes at the bottom of the recipe will tell you a weight and cup measurement to use for that flour.

How should I store this?

This Coconut Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is just like traditional banana bread, in that it’s very moist and fluffy. So, it needs to be stored in an airtight container. This can be a cake dome, Tupperware, or zip bag.
