Mango Nut Bread

There is nothing like fresh baked bread for breakfast. This low fat bread uses one of my favorite tropical fruits, the mango. The addition of coconut flakes gives this bread a tropical flair. I love this with a smear of mango butter!!

For those of you who have never baked bread before, this is very simple to make. The only appliance I used was a blender to purée the mango. The rest was mixed by hand.
