Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 180C. Grease and line the base and 2 long sides of an 11cm x 20cm loaf pan.

STEP 2

Combine flour, coconut, sugar, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda in a bowl.

STEP 3

Whisk the mashed banana, oil, egg and maple syrup in a bowl. Add to the flour mixture and combine. Spoon into prepared pan and smooth surface. Bake for 1 hour or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean. Set aside for 5 mins before turning onto a wire rack to cool.

STEP 4

Cut the banana bread into slices and toast. Meanwhile, melt butter in a non-stick frying pan over high heat. Add the banana and cook for 1 min each side or until browned.

STEP 5

Place the banana bread on serving plates. Top with the banana and drizzle with a little extra maple syrup.
