Coconut Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
½ c. unsalted butter
½ c. plus 2 Tbsp. coconut oil
1 c. granulated sugar
½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
3 eggs, divided; you will use the egg whites from all three eggs. Place in a separate bowl. You will only use 2 egg yolks.
1 ½ tsp. coconut extract
¼ c. coconut flour
1 ½ c. all purpose flour
½ c. shredded sweetened coconut
5-6 small over ripe bananas
2 c. semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 F. In a mixing bowl, add the butter, coconut oil and sugar. Mix until smooth. Add the salt, baking soda, 2 egg yolks, and coconut extract. Mix well. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff. Set aside. Add the coconut flour, all purpose flour and shredded coconut to the butter mixture; mix well. Add the bananas and mix well. Add the chocolate chips and mix until just combined. Fold the stiff egg whites gently into the mixture by hand. Turn the batter into a well greased loaf pan. Fill the span only 2/3 full or the batter will bake out of the pan. Bake for 1 hour and 8 minutes.
