Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup Bolthouse Farms Vanilla Plant Protein milk
  • 1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1/2 cup pecans chopped
  • 1 tsp. coconut extract
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Sweet Coconut Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 tsp. coconut extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.Lightly spray an 8" loaf pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Stir together all ingredients for the bread. There's no need to use a stand mixer or electric hand mixer. Quick bread actually rises better when you don't over mix it. Transfer batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake for 1 hour, or until internal temperature registers at 200 degrees F. Remove bread from oven and let cool in the pan while you make the glaze.
  • To make the glaze: Boil sugar, water and butter for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and then add the coconut extract. Pour over bread while loaf is still in the pan. Top with additional coconut flakes and chopped pecans, if desired. Let cool 30 minutes.
  • Place a piece of foil or plastic wrap lightly over top of bread and overturn loaf to remove from pan. I just hold it in my hand; the foil or plastic wrap acts a barrier. Place loaf on a plate, then fully cool. Slice and enjoy!

Notes

Bake mini loaves for about 30 minutes or muffins for about 12-15 minutes.
