2 / 2
  • 1 loaf



  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted and slightly cooled
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 teaspoon coconut palm sugar, divided
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1-1/2 cups grated carrots
  • 1/2 cup crushed pineapple, drained well
  • 1/2 cup mashed banana
  • 1 cup blanched almond flour
  • 1 cup organic spelt or whole-wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon aluminum-free baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Whole almonds, optional


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Butter or oil an 8-1/2-by-4-1/2-inch nonstick loaf pan; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine oil, butter, 1/4 cup sugar, eggs and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer for 3 minutes, or until mixture is fluffy. Add carrots, pineapple and banana, and beat until thoroughly mixed.
  • In a separate bowl, sift together the flours, baking powder and salt. Add to carrot mixture, and beat just until dry ingredients are fully incorporated. Stir in coconut.
  • Spread batter into prepared pan, pressing into corners and smoothing top with a spatula. Sprinkle with remaining sugar, and dot with whole almonds, if desired.
  • Bake for about 1 hour, or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire rack before turning out.Want more homemade bread recipes from the Capper’s Farmer editors? Read Homemade Quick Bread Recipes.
