Preparation

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 9-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. (I love Trader Joe’s Coconut Oil spray.)

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside.

In a separate large bowl, beat together banana, brown sugar, egg, coconut oil vanilla, yogurt, and almond milk until smooth and creamy. Slowly add dry mixture to wet ingredients, and mix until combined. Gently fold strawberries, raspberries, coconut and chia seeds into the batter.

Place batter in prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle top evenly with 3 tablespoons of coconut. Place sliced strawberries over the top of the bread. Bake for 50-65 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean. Cool on wire rack for 20 minutes, then remove from pan and return to wire rack to finish cooling. Bread is even better the next day (they always are). Bread will stay fresh for a few days when wrapped tightly. I love this bread with strawberry jam and peanut butter.
