Passionfruit, coconut and banana bread

Passionfruit and banana bread

Who said sweet things can't be healthy?

This recipe is packed full of fibre from the coconut, oats, and passionfruit seeds. I've adapted this recipe from another so I can't take credit for "inventing" this one but it's really tasty just the same. Give a try and let me know what you think!

Passionfruit, coconut and banana bread

Adapted from a recipe at:

Makes 1 loaf


  • 265g Self raising flour

  • 40g plain flour

  • 1 tsp Dutch cinnamon

  • 125g brown sugar

  • 110ml milk

  • 2 lightly beaten eggs

  • 50g melted butter

  • 2 over ripe mashed bananas

  • 10 passionfruit

  • 50g rolled oats

  • 50g shredded coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.

  2. Spray a bread tin lightly with spray oil and line with baking paper

  3. Pass 8 of the passionfruit through a sieve into in a bowl to catch the juices underneath

  4. Place the flours, sugar and cinnamon into a large bowl and mix to distribute evenly

  5. Add the banana, passsionfruit juice, milk, eggs and butter into the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly, before pouring into your bread tin

  6. Sprinkle some shredded coconut and passionfruit pulp over the top and place in the preheated oven for approximately 45mins. Make sure to check it every 15mins by pushing a skewer into the centre. It’s ready when the skewer comes out clean.

  7. Cool on a wire rack. You can eat this loaf fresh from the oven, cold, toasted or even topped with some ricotta and passionfruit.
