Maca Banana Bread with Coconut and Vanilla

Being a huge banana fan, I usually end up with a dozen overripe bananas taking a lot of space in my fridge. For a while now, I’ve been looking for a perfect banana bread recipe (and who didn’t??) because my entire family is absolutely in love with it!

After a long search, I have discovered something that turned out to be my number one banana bread recipe. It’s tender on the inside and lightly crispy on the outside with the best possible feature – it can be combined with maca powder and that is just fantastic!

Maca Banana Bread with Coconut and Vanilla

A simple combination of a couple of healthy ingredients makes this maca banana bread a truly valuable breakfast, snack or dessert.

You can wrap this bread in a large piece of plastic foil and keep it for a couple of days – its texture will remain exactly the same which is awesome. Grab a couple of slices, spread your favorite jam, and enjoy!
