"This is an incredible bread. Its moistness comes from the addition of an unusual ingredient: coconut milk! Originally submitted to"

I have now made this more times than I can count! I am always horrified by the amount of eggs and oil in these breads, so I made some easy substitutions to make it even healthier, but SHHHH, I don't tell anyone when I give it to them! I substitute 1 cup of whole wheat flour for 1 cup of regular flour and put one of those little containers of applesauce (approx. 1/3 cup) in the 1 cup measuring cup before filling it the rest of the way up with olive oil. NO, you can't taste the difference. I also replace the cinnamon/nutmeg mixture with 1 teaspoon EACH of pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon, and I used LIGHT coconut milk too. Toasting the nuts and adding coconut flakes is unnecessary. ;)


Yes, this is as super moist as it says and more. It's even moister the second day if you wrap it well in saran. The flaked coconut is completely uneccesary, and I didn't toast the walnuts and it turned out perfectly. I also added 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves for an extra kick and using Light Coconut Milk gives the same great results. I've made this 3 times in less than two weeks and my husband can't get enough. Great for giving since it stays moist for so long! **2nd UPDATE** - I've substituted unsweetened applesauce for ALL of the oil and and coconut milk (which has a lot of cholestrol and fat!) and it turned out phonomenal! The applesauce kept the bread SUPER moist and you can't taste it at all. Due to the wetness, it did take an extra 5 min. in the oven. Will never use oil/coconut milk in this again.


yummmmmmmm! This is a great treat for kids, my 8 month-old and my 2 year-old both love it. I make muffins and bake them @ 350 for about 22 minutes (give or take a minute) I also changed the recipe to accomidate using 1 15oz can of pumpkin. I use 3 1/4 cups flour and I add a tablespoon of applesauce. I have tried using less oil, and it dosen't come out right - stick to the 1 cup. I also adjusted the sugar to 1 1/2 cups brown and 1/2 cup white. I've tried using even less but they then taste a bit too bitter for us.
