- 3 overly ripe bananas
- 5 oz. Barefoot & Chocolate – Almond Coconut Chocolate Spread
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 2/3 cup frozen shredded coconut (thawed)
- 1/3 cup slivered almonds
- 6 T butter - melted
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
Preheat oven to 350F. Mash up the bananas with a fork in a large mixing bowl. Add the egg, sugar, vanilla, salt, butter, shredded coconut and almonds. Blend until well mixed. In a separate bowl mix the flour and baking soda. Add the flour mixture into the wet mixture in a few batches and mix until well blended.
Cut a piece of parchment paper to fit the sides and bottom of a standard 4X8 bread pan. I like to leave the paper a little long so there is paper draping over the edges of the pan. This allows you to simply lift the loaf out of the pan once it's cooled. Fit the parchment paper into the bread pan, creasing the paper to align with the seams of the pan. Butter the paper and the sides of the pan, lightly dust with flour. Pour in all the batter. Dollop Almond Coconut Chocolate Spread along the top of the loaf. Use a skewer to swirl the spread into the banana bread mixture until the spread is mostly covered by the batter.
Place the bread into the center of the oven. Bake for approximately 1 hour at 350F. Test the bread to ensure doneness by inserting a clean knife into the center. Keep in mind it will continue to cook bit after you take it out of the oven.
