Recipe Notes


This coconut & courgette loaf can be served either as an accompaniment to a sweet mealtime or savoury. Don’t be put off by the courgette in thinking this can only be served as a savoury dish, it’s delicious with jam, honey or nut butters. It is light, incredibly moist and great served with a wholesome soup or with smashed avocado, eggs and chili oil. You can also place it in the toaster, for that added crunch! I also love to add pan-fried halloumi on smashed avocado and a drizzle of honey!
