Step aside, banana.

Banana has been hogging the sweet bread stage for quite some time. Don’t get us wrong, we’ve enjoyed its performance (probably one too many times), but we feel it might be time to let another, equally tasty concoction into the limelight: coconut and raspberry bread.


If you’re new to this combination, prepare yourself because it’s hard to resist. Make it for breakfast, as a snack or when you’re entertaining—it’s gluten and dairy free so it’s allergy-approved. Plus, it has a dash of apple cider vinegar to help alkalise the body.

If you like banana bread, you’re guaranteed to like this too—in fact, we might even prefer it. So for all those times when you’re feeling a little adventurous, go for coconut and raspberry instead.
