After trying someone's coconut bread recipe that didn't turn out well, I changed the proportions, added a few new ingredients, and came up with this version. Delicious! It works well as muffins or bars, too. Just decrease the cooking time and bake until the inside is no longer gooey.

  • Combine sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat in coconut milk and eggs.

  • Mix all-purpose flour, almond flour, baking powder, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Stir into the butter mixture until batter is thoroughly blended. Fold in coconut and raisins.

  • Divide batter evenly between the greased loaf pans.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 1 hour. Cool completely before slicing, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute coconut cream for the coconut milk if desired.

Replace raisins with other dried fruit if desired.

I followed the recipe for the exception of adding chopped almonds and using homemade almond flour. I made muffins and baked them for 28 minutes. Not too sweet but very good and addictive! Read More

I've made these before according to the recipe but this time I used coconut oil instead of butter. Even better!! Oh and I left out the raisins since Hubby doesn't like them. The consistency is almost more like cookies than most muffins. I love these! Read More
