Mango Nut Bread

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

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.

  1. I liked this a lot! I did convert for high altitude by adding a tad more flour, it probably would have been fine without it. Will definitely make this again!

    My batter was somewhat dry (not pourable at all), the loaf hardly rose and I couldn’t find any mango flavor at all. Do you think reducing the puree first and substituting dried mango for the coconut might increase the mango flavor?

  3. I never would have thought to put mango into a quick bread, but this was very moist and the flavors worked together surprisingly well.

  4. again having trouble why my recipe builder is higher, i even left out the coconut
    1 c flour is 13pts
    1 c whole wheat flour is 11pts
    1/2 c sugar is 24pts
    2 T butter is 10 pts
    1/4 c walnuts is 6 pts
    divided by 16 and i get 4 pts per slice (no coconut and still higher)

  5. It says 2cups flour and then 2cups of wheat could I just use Bobs Red Mill Flour for both of theses measurements? Since I cannot have the wheat- to make this gluten free this sounds so divine for my taste!

  6. Hey. The recipe says to POUR the batter. But mine isn't pourable at all. It's probably closer to a dough. And there are no pictures of this step.
    Does this sound right?

    Is it OK for you if I posted some of the recipes from your blog as long as I link back to your original one?
