  • coconut oil or butter ½ cup
  • honey ½ cup
  • bananas 3 large ripe, mashed
  • desiccated coconut 2 cups
  • flour 1 cup (e.g. plain, wholemeal, or gluten-free or buckwheat flour, or ground almonds to make GF)
  • baking soda 1 teaspoon (check it is gluten-free if required)
  • free-range eggs 4
  • lemons 2, zested
  • salt one pinch


Preheat oven to 180 degC/355 Fahrenheit.

  1. Gently melt honey and coconut oil/butter together in a small pot.
  1. Use a fork to mix mashed bananas, coconut, flour, baking soda, honey mixture, eggs, lemon zest and salt together in a large mixing bowl until just combined, but be careful not to over-mix.
  1. Pour into a greased and lined loaf tin and bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.

The loaf will keep (unsliced) in an airtight container for up to 5 days. It also freezes well. A slice of this is delicious warmed up and spread with a little butter!
