Coconut Banana Bread with Lime Glaze

Gretchen Noelle

My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.

    I made this today for my daughter……it is fantastic! The only thing I did differently was that I added 1 cup of coconut instead of 1/2 because we are HUGE coconut lovers. Thanks for sharing the recipe :)

    Mmm that looks yummy. Everyone seems to love Cooking Light so I bought my first issue a few weeks ago but unfortunately didn’t find too many enticing recipes.

  11. Gretchen Noelle says:

    Bee – Thank you, it was a delicious combination!EatMeDelicious – I am so bummed you did not find much in the issue you bought! Some months there is less than others. And sometimes at first glance it appears that way, but after reading more, you find more. I do hope you will try again! I have loved them over the past 7 or 8 years.

    I’ve always added coconut to my banana bread and I think this tastes fabulous! Can’t wait to try to lime drizzle on top! Great to find a banana bread recipe that doesn’t call for a ton of butter!

    Thank you for bringing this recipe to my attention. Although I don’t really like bananas I had some saved in the freezer and decided, since I needed the space, to give this a shot. Besides, my spouse LOVES bananas! I finally got around to making it last night and it is REALLY delicious. I really like the coconut and lime component and will have this be my go to Banana Bread recipe from now on.~paulaz
