Delicious Peach Coconut Banana Bread Recipe - YUM! So moist and soft!

Hello again, Lil’ Luna readers! I’m back with another yummy treat for you! I don’t know if it’s all families, or just mine, but we seem to go in waves when it comes to bananas. For a couple of weeks the kids can’t get enough bananas, and we are always running out, and then all of a sudden we have rapidly browning bananas coming out of our ears. I’m always secretly glad when that happens, though, because I love making banana bread!

A few weeks ago I was in the position of having not only a bunch of browning bananas, but also some delicious ripe peaches sitting on my counter. It was a no brainer… peach coconut banana bread to the rescue! I love the delicious tropical flavor, and the peaches and coconut make the banana bread even more moist and delicious! Not to mention my kitchen smelled like heaven while it was baking… Having tried this delicious variation, I’m not sure I can go back to regular banana bread again!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Prepare a loaf pan or 4 mini loaf tins by spraying with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, mix together sugar, butter, and egg, then stir in milk.
  3. Add flour, baking powder, and salt, and stir until just combined.
  4. Gently fold in bananas, peaches, and coconut, sprinkling a teaspoon or two of the coconut on top of the loaf/loaves.

Love the idea of peaches in banana bread. Always looking for fun ways to dress up banana bread and this sounds delicious. Thanks!

Liz

Love this recipe. Thank you.

Jamie

I assume the banana bread is 1 egg? πŸ™‚

    AliciaS

    Yes, you’re right! I’ve updated the recipe. Thanks!

Kristina

This looks divine! Do you think I can swap the milk for buttermilk? I have some I’d love to use up. Never know if this will change the chemistry of the bread….

Thanks for any help you can provide!

    Lil' Luna

    This is Alicia’s recipe but I (Kristyn) think buttermilk would work too. Let me know how it goes. πŸ™‚

Liz

Love this recipe. Thanks so much.

Liz

Yum! Thank you and Happy Holidays.

Just wondering if I can use coconut milk and grain free flour like coconut or almond flour as substitutes?
and possibly raw honey instead of sugar?

Sorry for all the subs… (lol)

    Jacqueline

    Just wondering if you tried this and if it worked? I was wondering similar things!

Regina

By shredded coconut do you mean, sweetened or unsweetened?

Naomi @Carrot Cake Kitchen

This looks so good! I love the coconut/peach combination!

Nickey

Made this last night and it is incredible!! I don’t use sugar so I used maple syrup cause I ran out of agave and it turned out very well! Now I’m hoping to switch regular flour(all I had on hand last night) to gluten free and somehow replace the butter – maybe coconut oil will work? If I could get rid of the egg too I would be laughing but how?! Anyone?

    Lil' Luna

    Yay!! Love how you changed it to fit your likes and needs!! Thanks for sharing!

      Eden

      Lol, you’ve changed it to a completely different recipe…. πŸ˜›
      But if you add another banana, that should replace the egg.

Jim

Hi. This sounded so good I had to make it. It’s in the oven. Peaches in anything is good for me. I post later how good it is after tasting it. Thank you. Jim

Mariya

This looks soo yummy! I think i will try to make half of the batch as loaf and another half as muffins, will it work?

    Lil' Luna

    I haven’t tried, but it should! Let me know what you think! Thank you πŸ™‚

      Mariya

      Made it as loaf and as muffins, it works!!
      It is delicious, yet, we (me and my husband) thought something is missing… So we added a sour cream topping and it was perfect, end next time, i will put a spoon of apricot jam into muffins, as filling.
      I reccomend!!

        Lil' Luna

        I’m so happy to hear that!! Thanks for letting me know!
