Health Benefits of Coconut Oil

One of the healthy ingredients that gives this bread a moist, rich texture is coconut oil. Studies have shown that in addition to numerous other health benefits, coconut oil can help our immune systems mount resistance to viruses.

  1. Hi, Elana! I’ve made so many of your recipes over the years and always enjoy. Just wanted to say this is my new go-to quick bread. SO delicious. Everyone in my family really loves it. I do leave out the Stevia, because for me, the honey is plenty sweet! It really is WONDERFUL. My kids even love it, and they are big on chocolate desserts!

  2. Since being diagnosed Type 1 diabetic, I have struggled to find recipes that are blood sugar friendly. Then I happened to find this recipe and now I am extremely pleased I have something that not only tastes good, but is good for me and the rest of my family. Thank You so much for the work you do when you post a wonderful recipe like this. Be safe.

  3. I do not think this went thru, but thanks for the choc. chia seed pudding. I used heavy cream, and protein pwd. with dk. choc. monkfruit, and mct oil. Yum yum. Did not think anything could taste so good.

  4. This was so good! I made it into muffins so it would cook faster… and *MAY* have doubled the cacao powder since I had extra zucchini! Next time will have to add choc chips too!

  5. I love your recipes but for my digestive health you use too much almond flour or meal….. is there a way I can lessen that flour and compliment it with a low carb one!

  6. Thank you so much for the great recipe, Elana. I made it the other night and substituted half the sweetener with Swerve to cut the carbs a bit more and added 1/4 of Lily’s Dark Chocolate Chips. Really yummy. I always slice my breads and freeze the slices separately. That way I always have a treat in the freezer. Thank you again!

  7. This turned out so good! I didn’t have the size of loaf pan you specified; mine’s just a bit bigger, so I lined it with parchment paper and it squeezed the size just a little smaller. I also used 1tsp vanilla instead of the stevia, and avocado oil instead of coconut oil (it’s really very firm at room temperature today in Alaska, and I was too lazy to melt it!). Turned out delicious! My next slice will be toasted, with a bit of peanut or almond butter.

  8. Do you think I could db this recipe & bake in a 9 or 10″ bread pan ?
    Seems a shame to spend the time making a yummy bread in sm pan, it’ll be gone too soon !
