Eggless Coconut Lime Ginger Banana Bread

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in the creation of the #SpringSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Have you ever wondered about a flavorful quick bread that would take you to the tropics? This loaf of coconut lime ginger banana bread will! This loaf  is the best  and easy breakfast or snack that has a perfect kick from lime with a nutty flavor from coconut and pistachios with a hint of ginger. 

This bread with tropical flavors has subtle notes of lime, coconut, and banana, but adds to the depth of flavors making it an amazing one to bake for your next breakfast or brunch. This is phenomenal!

I received samples from Melissa's Produce, Taylor and Colledge, and Selefina Spices to aid the process of recipe development. Best food starts with the best ingredients and these products are simply the best! 

First, Melissa's Produce Key Limes! These key limes have a tart flavor but not too acidic and have a good aroma. The juice and zest adds immense flavor.

Next, Taylor and Colledge extract pastes give the perfect flavor in baked goods and it is always my go to  choice to use for any recipe. Check here for delicious recipes using almond extract paste, vanilla extract paste, Lemon extract paste, and Lavender extract paste. If you haven’t tried these, do try now and do not miss on the flavors.

Finally, Selefina Spices Candied ginger is the ultimate one! We love this and I have never tasted anything that good. Trust me, blindly you can order this. I am planning to buy a huge quantity. It is great to snack on as well as great to use in recipes.The best quality ever. They have a great range of spices and I recommend checking out their website for best quality spices. 

Now this delicious loaf is not hard to make and you need the following ingredients to make:

All purpose flour - The base for the bread. Whole wheat can also be used.

Coconut cream - Gives perfect coconut flavor and aroma. Coconut milk can also be used.

Unsweetened coconut flakes - Gives the tropical flavor touch.

Pistachios - Nuts are nutritious adding proteins. Any nuts of your choice can be used.

Selefina Spices candied ginger - A bite of ginger here and there gives a twist in flavor.

Cardamom - A little goes a long way adding tons of flavor

Banana - Sweetens, binds te bread, adds nutrition and flavor

Salt - Enhances flavor

Baking powder - Leavening agent

Baking soda - Leavening agent

Flaxseed powder - Binder

Melissa’s key limes Key limes have a sharp and beautiful flavor. This is simply amazing. Zest and juice are used 

Taylor and Colledge Vanilla paste - Gives a beautiful vanilla flavor

Oil - Neutral flavor oil works best.

Powdered sugar - For the icing

How long can this bread be stored?

This bread is great at room temperature for 3-4 days. If the temperature is hot, store in the refrigerator for up to a week. Bring them to room temperature, or pop it in the microwave for a few seconds.

When can this be served?

This is great to serve for breakfast, and makes a good snack too. A slice of this packed as a surprise would make anyone head over heels. These can make a great and healthy dessert too.

The versatility of banana bread will never fail to impress you with a new recipe, as you can always add as many different flavorings, add-ins and fillings as you’d like! (wink wink…nobody would complain about having banana bread again when you can convert the humble snack into something that carries such unique and fun flavors.
