Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 55 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup full fat coconut milk (see notes)
  • 2 tablespoons lime zest
  • 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the Sweet Lime Glaze

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon freshly squeezed lime juice

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, cream together coconut oil, coconut sugar, eggs, vanilla extract, lime zest, and coconut milk
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk the salt, baking soda, and flour until combined
  3. Add dry ingredients to wet, mixing until well combined
  4. Stir in unsweetened shredded coconut
  5. Grease a loaf pan and pour in batter
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes, or until browned on top and toothpick inserted comes out clean (mine was perfect at 55 minutes)
  7. Make glaze by whisking the powdered sugar with lime juice
  8. Drizzle glaze over bread and garnish with sprinkles of shredded coconut
  9. Store in the fridge

Notes

Full fat coconut milk from a can is what you want to use. Sometimes when you open the can the milk has separated into solid and liquid. Whisk milk until smooth before measuring out the 1 cup you will need for the recipe
