Why we love Raspberry Coconut Banana Bread Recipe

Y’all know how I love my sour dough baby… yes! I do. It makes everything just that much more betta! (I know that wasn’t proper english at all). Hahaha!

If you don’t have sourdough start going in your kitchen then just replace it in the recipe with light sour cream–it produces a moist and delicate loaf but I’m telling you (begging, actually!) to get a starter going. You’ll adore it too!

How to make Raspberry Coconut Banana Bread Recipe

  • Preheat oven 350 degrees F.
  • Coat 9×5 pan with cooking spray; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl cream butter.
  • Add sugars and cream 3-4 minutes until light and fluffy.
  • Add egg; mix 2 minutes.
  • Add vanilla, sourdough start or sour cream, and mashed banana; mix to incorporate.
  • In a separate bowl combine flour, sea salt, and baking soda; use a whisk to combine.
  • Add flour mixture all at once to wet ingredients; mix until 80% incorporated.

  • Add coconut and raspberries; gently mix with spatula to distribute.
  • Do not over mix- a few lumps are okay.
  • Evenly spread batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake 45-60 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center removes clean.
  • If at 45 minutes the top of the loaf looks very browned, set a piece of foil over the top to protect over browning. ( I needed to do this)
  • Cool on rack for 10 minutes, turn out and complete cooling.

How to care for a Sourdough Starter

It’s not hard to take care of a sourdough start… here’s our The Ultimate Sourdough Starter Guide with awesome tips and tricks. It needs a bit of love in the form of flour and water a couple times a week if it lives out of the fridge. If you keep it in the fridge then once a month will do it!

Fit Friday with Nichole

Today I took my kids to the pool and ran into a few friends. Many of them I haven’t seen since school got out and the kids took over. Don’t get me wrong, I have enjoyed my family adventures this summer. We have spent time camping, hiking, swimming, paddle boarding, roasting marshmallows, and all things summer. It has been glorious.

Check out my post about exploring and adventures in our gorgeous mountains with my youngest on Facebook at Pure Clean Coaching , you can also find me on Instagram at Pure Clean Coaching

 

 

But I am also missing life a bit away from my kiddos. Missing the mindless chatter with friends that seems to glue us all together. Missing letting mom guard down and just being. 

 

This week we are doing a partner workout. A chance to grab a friend and hit the gym, or wherever your workout, together. Save the chatter for warm up and cool down. Work hard on the push and cheer each other on. 

 

Divide up the workout however it works for you. One person works while the other one rests, except for the running.  I like to divide most of these types of workouts in either sets of 5s or 10s. Long enough to be a push and to give the other person a breather but short enough that it is a solid push and I am not petering out before I get my set in.

    💜 this loaf looks absolutely beautiful! Do you think I can use frozen raspberries if I dust them with a little flour? And I only have regular sour cream, not light… would that still work?

    • Ruthie says:

      Thank you! Yes, frozen will work–the flour is a great idea! Yes, regular sour cream works great too! I hope you love this loaf as much as I do! ~Ruthie
