Vegan Banana Bread With Coconut Frosting



This vegan recipe is a modified version of my mother’s. I use pineapple juice and coconut oil for a tropical flair. I also use whole wheat flour and flax seed for increased fiber; flax seeds were also used as egg substitute. I must say this tastes just as good as my Mama’s. I decided to include 2 versions of coconut frosting, the first one is similar to frosting consistency and the second is more like a glaze.


  • Banana Bread
    • 3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
    • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
    • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
    • 1 cup coconut palm sugar
    • 1/2 cup coconut oil
    • 2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1 Tbs ground flaxseed
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    • 1/2 cup coconut flakes
  • Coconut Frosting 1

    • 1 cup full fat coconut milk
    • 1 dropper full liquid stevia
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Coconut Frosting 2
  • 1 teaspoon tapioca starch
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease loaf pan and set aside. Place flour, ground flaxseed, sugar, baking powder and salt in a large bowl. In a smaller bowl, combine pineapple juice, oil, and vanilla. Combine dry and wet ingredients and then stir in mashed bananas. Spoon batter into loaf pan and bake for 1 hour. Transfer to wire rack for 10 minutes to cool. Spread coconut frosting over bread and top with coconut flakes.

Coconut Frosting 1 : Leave can of coconut milk in refrigerator overnight ( I like to use Thai Brand coconut milk). The following day open and scoop coconut cream into a bowl. Save remaining liquid to add to curries or rice dishes. Add stevia and vanilla and whisk coconut cream until thick. Spread over banana bread.

Coconut Frosting 2 : In a small bowl combine tapioca starch and water and set aside. Bring coconut milk, maple syrup and vanilla in a medium pot to boil. Reduce heat and  add tapioca starch mix, stirring constantly until thicken. Spread over banana bread
