• 3 ripe bananas
  • ⅓ cup butter (either salted or unsalted), melted
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup millet (if you don’t want the bread to have too much crunch, use ¼ cup of millet instead)
  • shredded sweetened coconut

Step 1

Combine the bananas and butter. The riper the bananas, the more their flavor will come through. If the butter is still hard from being refrigerated, microwave the bananas and butter together for 1 minute.

Step 2

Mix the bananas and butter together.

Step 3

Add the baking soda, sugar, vanilla, salt, and flour to the bananas and butter.

Step 4

Mix the ingredients well.

Step 5

Add the egg and mix the ingredients again, making sure there are no flour clumps.

Step 6

Add the millet.

Step 7

Mix the ingredients together and pour into a baking dish.

Step 8

Add enough shredded coconut to cover the top of the bread.

Step 9

Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes.


This recipe works well as a “one-pot” bake. All the ingredients can be added and mixed in the dish you intend to bake the bread in.
This recipe also works really well as a muffin. Fill the muffin tins halfway with the bread batter, then top with the shredded coconut. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
For a sweeter treat, use ½ cup sugar and ½ cup of your favorite chocolate chips.
