No more turkey.

Sorry for being M.I.A.

My only excuse is Thanksgiving.

Period. End.

I cooked and baked my little bitty heart out.

Oh, and I’m still feasting on leftover turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and sweet potato casserole.

It’s a shame that Thanksgiving isn’t year round’.

But then it wouldn’t be any fun not to be able to look forward to gaining 10 pounds at one meal.

I definitely wore my stretchy leggings on turkey day and ate to my heart’s content.

The dessert table was insane.

I stil want dessert.

Let’s lighten it up.

We are gonna put full-fat coconut milk in our banana bread.

Because we all need a little fat in our diet.

Oh the heavens.

If there is one thing that I can’t live without it’s coconut.

Toasted coconut is just the icing on the cake.

The coconut milk in this banana bread adds a creamy, melt in your mouth, pound cake like texture.

To make things even fancier we jazz this sucker up with a coconut yogurt maple glaze.

We are just gonna call this like it is…

a coconut milk banana pound cake.

Because I’m pretty positive this is what a pound cake is supposed to be.
