Healthy Mango Coconut Bread

Healthy Mango Coconut Bread

This Healthy Mango Coconut Bread is a delicious quick bread that’s bursting with tropical flavors. It has fresh mango, lime juice and zest, and of course coconut milk and flakes. To make it healthier, it’s made with whole wheat flour, yogurt, coconut sugar and doesn’t have any added oil. It’s a unique bread that is perfect for summertime, or whenever you have some ripe mangos around!

Mango Health Benefits

I love this bread because I’m a huge fan of tropical fruits, but also because mango is a great addition to a healthy diet. It’s particularly high in vitamin-c which helps boost the immune system, and it’s also high in antioxidants, vitamin-B6, vitamin-A, and vitamin-E. Since it has minerals such as magnesium and potassium, it also aids in supporting a healthy heart. Vitamin-C and Vitamin-E are essential for healthy skin, which means that mangos are a great skin care option. Overall, it adds a lot to a healthy balanced diet, and it tastes awesome in baked goods or eaten on its own!

Bread Ingredients

  • Whole wheat flour
  • All-purpose flour
  • Baking powder
  • Baking soda
  • Fine sea salt
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Large Egg
  • Plain yogurt
  • Full-fat coconut milk
  • Coconut sugar
  • Pure vanilla extract
  • Lime juice
  • Lime zest
  • Ripe mango 
  • Unsweetened shredded coconut

Ingredient Notes

For a gluten-free version of this bread, try using Pamela’s All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour, or Cup4Cup Gluten-Free Flour. I have never made this gluten-free myself, but those brands are usually great with 1-1 conversions.

To make this recipe dairy-free, you can replace the yogurt with either applesauce or plant-based yogurt.

Make sure to use canned full-fat coconut milk for this recipe and not a brand in a carton. The fat from the coconut milk makes the bread moist, so I don’t have to add any additional oil or butter. Also, for extra coconut flavor, I use coconut sugar as the sweetener in this recipe. It only has a little coconut flavor, but it’s a healthier alternative to white sugar as well.

Bread Making Equipment

  • 8.5×4.5 Loaf pan
  • Peeler
  • Pairing knife
  • 2 large mixing bowls
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Lime juicer and zester
  • Whisk
  • Spatula

If you don’t have a lime juicer or zester, I definitely recommend you getting one! They are convenient for any project with fresh lemon or lime juice and zest. I use mine all the time, and they are super inexpensive on Amazon.

Recipe Notes

  • When baking the bread, check at 35 minutes to see if it’s done. If a toothpick comes out clean, it should be fully baked, but if not, bake it for another 5 minutes.
  • If the top looks like it’s browning too quickly, carefully place aluminum foil over the top until the center is finished baking.
  • Store this bread wrapped in aluminum foil or plastic wrap in the fridge for up to 4 days. (It won’t last that long!)
  • If you’d like to freeze this bread, wrap it in aluminum foil and place it in a ziploc freezer bag. Freeze it for up to 3 months, and defrost in the fridge when you’re ready to eat it.
