  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1 2/3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon espresso powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup loosely packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted and slightly cooled
  • 4 bananas, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • coarse sugar, for sprinkling
  • espresso glaze
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 ounces freshly brewed espresso
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a 9x5 inch loaf pan thoroughly with nonstick spray. In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, whisking thoroughly. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and brown sugar until smooth. Add in the milk and coconut oil, whisking until combined. Stir in the mashed bananas and vanilla extract until mixed. Slowly stir in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Pour batter in the greased loaf pan. Top with coarse sugar.

Place the loaf pan on a baking sheet and set in the oven. Bake for 75 to 85 minutes, or until the center is set. If the streusel begins to brown, tent the bread with aluminum foil. Remove the bread and let it cool in the pan for 20 minutes. Gently turn the bread out on a plate or cutting board and let it cool completely before glazing.

espresso glaze
Whisk together the ingredients until a smooth, drippy glaze forms. If the mixture is too thin, you can thicken it by adding a little more powdered sugar. If it seems too thick, add 1 teaspoon of milk at a time, whisking to combine. Pour it over the banana bread and let it set for 30 minutes before slicing.
