Tropical Tango Bread

Serves: 10

Happy Tuesday! I hope you had a great long weekend! The weather on the Cape finally broke yesterday and we couldn’t have asked for a better day! It was sunny and 70 degrees! The perfect weather for me to be outside doing yard work with my grandmother. Well, more like me staining wood and weeding the garden while she directed me! 😉 But it was well worth the sweat to see her happy face after! Plus she treated me to an amazing dinner later that night! The rest of the weekend we spent relaxing, reading, shopping and of course, I got in some awesome yoga classes!

Now that the weekend is over, it is time to get back into our yummy recipes! This bread recipe, I must say, definitely, is the best of all the bread recipesI have made so far (in my opinion of course)! Well,  maybe it rivals this one, but it is still amazing! It is also the perfect recipe to kick off the warm weather for summer! This one is sure to send your taste buds to a tropical island! I hope you enjoy! 🙂

All I can say is “WOW”!!! This bread is LOADED with tropical flavors!!! The banana, pineapple, mango, and coconut flour combined make one delicious bread! It was so moist and light too! This one was so good it was gone before I could blink my eyes!! I was snacking on it non stop! Spread a bit of coconut butter on it and you will be thanking me for weeks to come! 😉

  • Yum that looks so delicious! I love mangoes by far but pineapple is definitely up there too! It is Autumn here but about to turn to Winter on Saturday and the weather has been cold already.

    any sub ideas for egg whites?

    • if you are allergic to eggs, you can try the "flax egg" which is 1 tbsp ground flax seed and 3 tbsp hot water... and vigorously mix together to get a scrambled egg consistency. (1 serving = 1 egg)

    Is 100% whey isolate okay? And I'd prefer real eggs to empty egg whites...do you know how that would change things? This looks incredible, just wish it constituted more "real" food :)

  • Wow! That looks amazing! I'm going to go in search of that protein powder. Tropical flavor sounds delicious! I love tropical flavored things during the summer. Reminds me of being on a beach sipping pina colada's :-) P.S. I feel like I always say wow with your recipe posts but they always look so good!
