Coconut Almond Quick Bread

Last night, I wanted something quick, easy, and full of coconut.  I instantly remembered my delicious quick bread recipe I used to make for my farmer’s markets.  My coconut quick bread was a favorite among my customers and sold out every time, which of course made my kids sad since they loved it so much.

Last night while gathering the ingredients I noticed I didn’t have 2 important ones, butter & buttermilk.  So I used oil & almond milk instead.  The bread was still delicious but a little more dense, not as light and fluffy like it normally is.  But it was quicker to make since you didn’t need to blend the butter and sugar together first.  You can just throw it in a bowl, mix, pour, & bake.  Simple as that.  Which ever way suits you, you’ll enjoy a nice coconut treat, that I’m sure will be a favorite of yours as well.  But don’t be scared off, it does seem like a lot of coconut flavor with the extract and actual coconut, but the extract brings out the coconut flavor so nice, I can’t make it any other way.
The recipe below is the normal way I bake this but I will add the way I baked it last night too.
