After 6 years of making Coconut Chips, it happened.

We received our first 1 star review.

We've had hundreds of published 5-star reviews and thousands of happy customers. Most of the reviews give me the warm & fuzzies, but this one made me squirm.

Coconut & Lime Loaf Recipe June 26 2018, 0 Comments

Beach Harvest Australian Coconut Sprinkles & Coconut Chips

Coconut & Lime Loaf with Lime Icing

My good friend Cristine from CWA gave me a recipe as a means to showcase our Coconut Sprinkles and to give our customers inspiration on ways to use them in their baking.  I made it Dairy Free (you could also make it vegan by substituting eggs for chia seeds), and this Coconut & Lime Loaf still has that homemade-with-love authentic taste, and the blend of coconut and lime is delicious perfection!

Cristine bakes these in mini-loaf tins, making them perfect to slice and share.

Loaf Ingredients:

1 1/2 cup SR flour

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup coconut oil

1/4 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

1 cup almond milk

1/2 cup Plain Coconut Sprinkles

1 Tablespoon Lime Rind

Lime Icing Ingredients:

1-2 cups of plain coconut yogurt

Juice of 1 lime

Method:

Beat the flour, sugar, oil, eggs and milk until sugar is dissolved.  Add Coconut Chips and Lime Rind.  Bake in moderate oven for approx 40 min.

Lime Icing:

Mix all icing ingredients together and spread on loaf when it’s cooled.  Top with additional Coconut Sprinkles for decoration.

Did you make this Coconut Lime loaf?  How'd you go?  I'm currently experimenting to make this loaf dairy-free, substituting with Almond Milk and Coconut Oil.... stay tuned!

EDIT: I made the dairy-free changes and no longer use butter or dairy milk in my baking.  The recipe is updated and is the exact one I use at the markets.

Coconut Lime Loaf - It doesn't last long!
