A wholesome tasty banana bread filled with lots of good-for-you ingredients including bran, whole wheat flour, bananas, yogurt, chocolate chips and coconut.
Banana bread is one of my favorite things so I’m always experimenting with different recipes and flavor combinations. This one is slightly adapted from a muffin recipe in 750 Best Muffin Recipes: Everything from breakfast classics to gluten-free, vegan and coffeehouse favorites, a wonderful cookbook for muffin lovers from the talented Camilla Saulsbury.
(Since reading several years ago that quick bread and muffin recipes are virtually the same and interchangeable, I’ve been having fun mixing things up.)
This not-too-sweet bread baked up moist and delicious. Using mini chocolate chips helps insure you get a taste of chocolate in every bite. Adding the coconut was my idea. I love it’s chewy sweetness. But you could always leave it out if you prefer.
