Author: 
Serves: 12 slices
 
Ingredients
  • 2 C white whole wheat flour**
  • ⅓ C unsweetened baking cocoa
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 C plain yogurt
  • ⅓ C honey
  • ¼ C milk of your choice
  • 3 tbsp melted coconut oil/olive oil/canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 C shredded coconut, toasted (unsweetened or sweetened)
  • ½ C chocolate chips
  • additional chocolate chips for topping, optional
  • additional untoasted coconut for topping, optional (unsweetened or sweetened)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9x5 inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, unsweetened baking cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together yogurt, honey, milk, eggs, and vanilla extract. Stir wet ingredients to dry ingredients until just combined. Stir in melted coconut oil until combined. Stir in coconut and chocolate chips.
  4. Spread batter into prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle with additional chocolate chip and coconut.
  5. Bake for 50-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean. If you find that the coconut is getting too brown, stick a toothpick at each end of the bread and tent bread with foil.
  6. Remove to a wire rack to cool.
Notes
**To give the bread a finer texture, use 1½ cups white whole wheat flour and ½ cup all-purpose flour.
