NOTE - almost all coconut sold in the US is highly sugared... I buy unsweetened coconut at Whole Foods.
Low(er) carb banana bread.
2 small ripe bananas
4 large eggs
1 stick baking margarine or butter (you could probably leave this out - bananas, flax and coconut all contain fat)
1/2 cup ground flax
1/2 cup almond meal
1/2 cup UNSWEETENED dessicated coconut
3/4 cup white sugar
1/2 cup raisins (or you could sub craisins)
1/2 cup chocolate chips
2 tsp baking powder
1-1/2 cups flour
Approx 3/4 cup milk (you may not need so much)
Cinnamon or Pumpkin Pie spice to taste
Melt margarine/butter in the microwave. Add bananas and mash them in the bowl. Add the eggs and the flax, almond and coconut and mix well. Add all other ingredients except the milk. Lastly, add milk to make it look like cake batter.
Bake at 375 Degrees for 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
This recipe made 6 'mini foil loaf pans', to be divided into quarters for eating. It would probably make 24 muffins, in which case each muffin would contain
