If you love chocolate and you love coconut, then this is a great bread to enjoy both. It’s also a easy way to obtain healthy cocoa flavonoids that have been associated with reduced blood pressure and increased HDL.
Be sure to use the “undutched” variety of cocoa that contains the full benefit of cocoa flavonoids. You can recognize undutched cocoa by the absence of the word “alkali” on the list of ingredients, meaning it was not treated with alkali chemicals to remove the bitterness. Trader Joes, Scharffen Berger, and Hershey’s are among the choices of unsweetened and undutched cocoas.
Enjoy your chocolate coconut bread spread with cream cheese or nut butters, or lightly toasted and spread with butter.
