Ingredients in Coconut Banana Bread

If you have some ripe bananas and some shredded coconut, this recipe will be a cinch! Using ingredients that are probably already in your pantry, this coconut banana bread comes together in just a few minutes! See the recipe card below for exact ingredient measurements.

  • Canola oil: I used canola oil but you could substitute it for vegetable oil!
  • Sugar: This is used to make this a sweet bread.
  • Eggs: Use eggs that are at room temperature and beaten well!
  • Vanilla and almond extract: This adds a delicious flavoring to the sweetness.
  • Flour: I used all purpose flour.
  • Baking powder and baking soda: These will help the bread to rise and be soft and moist.
  • Salt: Salt enhances the flavor of the other ingredients.
  • Bananas: Make sure that your bananas are very ripe (meaning that they are yellow and brown). They are sweeter when they are like this!
  • Coconut milk: Using coconut milk brings out that coconut flavor!
  • Coconut: Shredded coconut brings the perfect texture to this bread!

Let’s Bake Some Bread!

Once you have gathered all of the ingredients you need, you just mix it up and pop it in the oven! It is super simple and easy and you will be smelling and tasting this amazing coconut banana bread before you know it!

  1. Prep: Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.
  2. Beat and mix: With an electric mixer, beat together the oil and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add the eggs mixing well after each addition until mixture is smooth and fluffy. Stir in the vanilla and almond extracts. Set aside.
  3. Stir and mash: In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. In a third mixing bowl, mash the bananas with a fork or pastry cutter. Stir in the coconut milk and shredded coconut.
  4. Dry ingredients: Alternate between adding the dry ingredients and banana mixture to the egg mixture. Begin and end with the dry ingredients.
  5. Pour, bake and cool: Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf pan and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool for about 10-15 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before slicing and serving.

Baking Tips

To make this coconut banana bread turn out perfectly, here are a few tips and tricks! In fact, if you follow these, you can’t go wrong! This recipe will turn out just perfectly!

  • Ripe bananas: In order to get that sweet taste out of a banana, you need to make sure that it is ripe. It needs to be yellow with brown spots on it to be perfect for coconut banana bread!
  • Don’t underbake: To check if it’s done, insert a toothpick into the middle of your bread. If it comes out clean, your bread is done! If there is still some batter on the toothpick, put the bread back into the oven and continue baking it. The bread should be lightly browned on the outside when it’s done.
  • Mashed bananas: To mash up the bananas, I like to peel them and mash them up with a fork. That way, I can make sure that I get all of the lumps out before mixing the bananas in with the batter!
  • Let it cool: To make sure that the bread slices up nicely, let it cool completely before you slice it! Otherwise, it will crumble.

How to Store Coconut Banana Bread

Once you have baked this delicious coconut banana bread, you will want to know how to store it correctly! Here’s how you can do that to make it last a few days!

  • At room temperature: Once your banana bread has cooled, wrap it in plastic wrap or store it in an airtight container. You can store it on your counter for up to 3 days!

How to Bake Ahead and Freeze

This bread freezes so well! You can make a few extra loaves and store them in your freezer for a later time! Once your coconut banana bread has cooled, wrap each loaf in some plastic wrap and place it in a ziplock freezer bag. Label the bag with the date and place it in your freezer. It can last for up to 2 months frozen! When you are ready to eat, just defrost it. Then, you can slice it and serve it up! It will be just as delicious as the day that you baked it!

Bacon Ranch Turkey Burgers

These super simple Bacon Ranch Turkey Burgers are the BEST homemade burgers around. Simple ingredients with TONS of flavor! The post Bacon Ranch Turkey Burgers appeared first on Budget Bytes.

Bacon Ranch Turkey Burgers

Ever since I made my own Homemade Ranch Seasoning the floodgates of recipe ideas have been opened. Ranch seasoning adds so much delicious, tangy, herby flavor to everything, including burgers. These Bacon Ranch Turkey Burgers are so stupid easy and crazy delicious that I might just never go out for burgers again. And as always, I’ve got plenty of ingredient options for you below. ????

It’s All About the Ranch Seasoning

ALL of the flavor in these turkey burgers comes from ranch seasoning mix. I used my own homemade ranch seasoning, but you can just make this quick and easy using a store-bought packet of Hidden Valley (or any other brand) of ranch seasoning. You’ll need one packet, which is about 3 Tbsp.

Can I Use a Different Type of Meat?

Yes, you can make your bacon ranch burgers using ground beef, ground pork, or even ground chicken. I chose turkey because the light flavor doesn’t compete too much with the ranch seasoning, and I like the texture of ground turkey better than ground chicken.

You’ll want to use ground meat with a little fat to keep the burgers moist and tender.

Other Burger Topping Ideas

I topped my burgers with cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, and mayonnaise, so it was kind of like a BLT on steroids. But you can change up the toppings if you’re not a fan of what I used. Here are some other topping ideas that would work well with these ranch burgers:

  • Avocado or guacamole
  • Red onion
  • Ranch dressing
  • French fried onions
  • Coleslaw
  • Buffalo sauce
  • Alfalfa sprouts
  • Comeback sauce

What to Serve with Ranch Burgers

I served my Ranch Burgers with some baked fries, but there are so many delicious sides that would go great with these burgers. A little potato salad would be awesome, or maybe some Broccoli Pasta Salad, Classic Creamy Coleslaw, or a simple side salad.

Ingredients

  • 8 slices bacon $2.99
  • 1 lb. ground turkey $3.99
  • 3 Tbsp ranch seasoning mix* $0.53
  • 1 Tbsp cooking oil $0.04
  • 4 slices cheese (optional) $1.15
  • 4 hamburger buns $1.25
  • 1 tomato $1.40
  • 4 leaves lettuce $0.55
  • 4 Tbsp mayonnaise $0.25

Instructions

  • Cook the bacon using the directions on the package or the method of your choice (skillet, oven, microwave) until brown and crispy.
  • Add the ground turkey to a bowl along with the ranch seasoning mix. Using your hands, mix the ranch seasoning into the ground turkey.
  • Divide the ground turkey into four equal amounts, then shape into burger patties. The meat will contract quite a bit as it cooks, so make the patties quite wide and flat (about 4.5 inches in diameter).
  • Add a little cooking oil to a skillet and heat over medium. Once the skillet is hot, add the burger patties and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side or until the burgers are browned and cooked through.
  • If using cheese, add a slice of cheese to each burger, place a lid on the skillet and allow the heat to melt the cheese.
  • While the burgers are cooking, slice the tomato. Build the burgers using the buns, tomatoes, lettuce, cooked bacon, and mayonnaise. Enjoy!

Notes

*You can use store-bought or homemade ranch seasoning. If your ranch seasoning is in bulk rather than a single packet, use about 3 Tbsp.

How to Make Bacon Ranch Turkey Burgers – Step by Step Photos

cooked bacon strips on a paper towel lined plate

Cook 8 strips of bacon until brown and crispy using either the instructions on the package or your favorite method. I like to cook my bacon in the oven. Here is my tutorial on how to cook bacon in the oven.

ground turkey in a bowl with ranch seasoning

Add one pound ground turkey to a bowl with 3 Tbsp (one packet) ranch seasoning or homemade ranch seasoning mix. Mix the seasoning into the meat until evenly combined.

Shaped turkey burger patties

Divide the meat into four equal portions and then shape them into patties. The meat will contract quite a bit as it cooks, so make them much wider and flatter than you want the final burger to be. My patties were about 4.5 inches wide when raw. Ground turkey can be quite soft and wet compared to ground beef, but don’t let that worry you.

Cooked turkey burgers in a skillet, two with cheese on top

Add some cooking oil to a skillet and heat over medium. Once hot, add your burgers (you can do two batches if they’re too big to all fit) and cook for 3-5 minutes on each side or until well browned and cooked through. If using cheese, add a slice of cheese on top, place a lid on the skillet, and allow the heat to melt the cheese.
