mango coconut bread

by Heather

Good morning!

It’s a sleepy morning over here. I had a rough time getting up and making it to water aerobics this morning. But, I did make it and it felt great floating and working out in the water. Love every minute of it.

Since I’m a sleepy head, I’m just going to get straight to the point today.

What’s the point? Bread. Quick and easy, slightly sweet and fruity bread. We like fruity.

Each week for our Bradley Class we bring a snack in a different category. Last week was fruit, which is why this simple loaf was made.

I came home with a couple pieces left… it sure was a hit! I quickly finished them off the next morning.

It’s really a simple recipe, definitely one I’ll be making again!

Mango Coconut Bread
Makes 1 loaf

Adapted from coconut breakfast cake


  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp canola oil
  • ¼ cup natural cane sugar
  • 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup diced mango (a little bit less than 1 whole mango)
  • ½ cup milk of choice (I used 2%, but coconut milk would work great in here)
  • ¼ cup shredded unsweetened coconut


  1. Pre-heat oven to 350. Coat a loaf pan with oil spray.
  2. Combine all wet ingredients. In a separate bowl, combine dry and stir well. Mix dry into wet, but do nnt over mix.
  3. Pour into pan and bake for 35-38 minutes. Let cool at least ten minutes before going around the sides with a knife and removing from loaf pan.

Don’t be like me and only wait a couple minutes to remove the bread from your pan… you may lose a little bread!

Or if you want to be impatient like me, just lay some parchment paper down before pouring the batter in your loaf pan. I’m definitely doing that next time.

Any mango and coconut fans out there?

Love both! I bought a huge container of pre-cut mango at Costco on the weekend and was looking for ways to use it, so this loaf will be made 🙂 This morning I had coconut & mango overnight oats – delicious!

I love the pre-cut mango! It’s definitely a chore chopping up your own 🙂

I love mango with anything, never have I thought to bake with it though. yum! A good alternative to banana bread which I just don’t like.

Fit Mama April 25, 2012 - 1:23 pm

Yup for non banana bread fans this is a great option!

Glad I’m not the only one!!

That bread sounds dedlicious! I would replace the vanilla extract with coconut extract though for sure! I love all things coconut!

Ohhhhh what a yummy idea!

I love mango, and I love coconut, yet I do think I’ve ever had the two mixed! Sounds delicious though! I can’t wait to try it out! 🙂

Fit Mama April 25, 2012 - 1:24 pm

It’s an awesome combo you’ve gotta try!

I love tropical flavored things! This reminds me of a pina colada in bread form, mmmm.

Fit Mama April 25, 2012 - 1:25 pm

Yum you can’t go wrong with piña colada in any form 🙂

I’ve never had mango. Tried cutting one up once for my daughter and decided I’d never attempt that again. Maybe I’ll give it another shot, or just go out and get one of those silly mango slicers. Just what I need, another kitchen gadget!

Fit Mama April 25, 2012 - 1:26 pm

They definitely are slippery to cut up! I find peeling it with a vegetable peeler, then slicing the bottom to create a flat surface helps me cut them up… but still they’re not easy!

That looks delicious!! Happy belated birthday!!!! My husbands birthday was yesterday too. Hope you had a great day.

[…] don’t make it the majority of what you eat.  Hunter’s had a couple tastes of sweets (mango coconut bread comes to my mind), but it’s not an every day thing, and it wasn’t like that was his […]
