Recipe: Strawberry Coconut Chia Seed Banana Bread

Breakfast Recipes, Snack Recipes


Strawberries, coconut, chia seeds.  Three of my favorite superfoods come together in one delicious recipe.  Not to mention, this banana bread is easy to make and only 160 calories per slice.  I love making this recipe on lazy weekend mornings and having delicious banana bread around the house all week, or weekend, or as long as it lasts, which is usually not very long in my house!



  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup ripe mashed banana (about 2-3 bananas)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted and cooled
  • 1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup nonfat plain greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk (soy, coconut, or skim also work)
  • 3/4 cup diced organic ripe strawberries
  • 1/4 cup smashed organic raspberries (or you can use more strawberries)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut, plus 3 tablespoons for topping (sweetened is fine, too)
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2-4 strawberries, sliced for topping

Is there any chance you could weigh the ingredients for these recipes rather than use cups? Us across the pond would appreciate it as I do not have “cups” only scales. Thanks

    Hi Mary - I have found an online converter that helps when looking for metrics and not just cups. This is one of my favorite to use when I have had clients ask for the same thing you are looking for: Hopefully this will be a helpful tool for you in the meantime. :) Happy cooking!

I wonder if this would work with a combo of coconut and almond flour for a no grain alternative?

    I have both those on hand, tempting!
