Fruit For Life – Coconut Chips

img_6244

Sometimes I crave a snack with crunch and this filled that need perfectly.

I love how they are delicately roasted, they’re such a beautiful snack and very easy to eat. I finished the entire bag!

I purchased this bag at Coles and I believe they were about $2.15 in the baking aisle where the dried fruits and nuts are stored.

 

I have a new addiction – COCONUT CHIPS !

It’s no secret in our house that I love everything COCONUT! Coconut water, coconut milk, shredded, desiccated omg everything coconut I adore ❀

I was at the pharmacy the other day and I saw coconut chips on the counter, they weren’t cheap (about $4 is memory is correct) but having never tried them before and having the personality where money burns a hole in my pocket and must must be spent I grabbed a bag.

oh how I wish I grabbed more than 1 bag πŸ˜₯ biggest regret lol

Oh my sweet amazing crunchy delicious new love

I don’t know about other brands, as I said this is the only brand i’ve ever tried. But WOW these things are amazing. The packet did not have enough though as after I finished the last crunchy delicious morsel I was begging for more and getting each tiny crumb from the bottom corners to prolong the snacking delight.

Check them babies out. Crunchy, sweet and simply divine

The next time I see these babies i’m stocking up. I’ll have to be sneaky and hide the purchase from my husband though or he’ll likely have a heart attack at the price hehe

Are you in love with coconut as much as I am?

 

My FAVOURITE Banana Bread

I love Banana bread and this one is my all time favourite. So soft and rather cake like which completely appeals to my tastes. I hope you love it too.

Smash up two big banana’s and add to a stand mixer or you can use your hand mixer…

Add a TBS pure vanilla extract and mix with a paddle for about 2 minutes.

Add to that 3 eggs, 120ml veggie oil, 180g natural yoghurt ( I used greek ), 150 g brown or raw sugar ( I used brown cos I am naughty ), 2.5 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp ground nutmeg and mix for another 2 minutes.

Add 400 grams self raising flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp bicarb soda, 1/2 tsp salt mix for another couple of minutes until well beaten and light.

Bake 180C in a lined loaf pan until skewer comes out clean.

Adapted recipe…

I used wholemeal flour with this one and added shredded coconut, chocolate chips, chopped dates and some honey. It was so delicious.
