Coconut lime bread is a Paleo-friendly snack with a little taste of the Summer. This loaf makes a great, quick and easy snack or on-the-go breakfast! It just happens to be gluten free too!
You see that bright thing in the sky? I think that it’s called the sun.
It’s been awhile since we’ve seen it’s shining face but, my friends, Summer is finally on the way! Can I get a woo to the hoo?
With the appearance of Mr. Golden Sun (did you sing that song growing up?) I find myself wanting to do anything and everything warm weather related…including eating ALL THE THINGS that remind me that flip-flop weather is on it’s way!
I mean, can you think of a better to way to celebrate the season then treating yourself to a pedicure (gotta get those toesies flippy flop ready!) and sipping on a Pineapple Coconut Smoothie.
Too much Summer food? I didn’t think so.
How-ev-er, when I think about beaches and palm trees and colorful, little tropical fish, there is one thing that my brain needs to make the picture complete – something coconut lime.
When I’m feeling lazy, I’ll rub a little coconut-lime lotion on my hands and then pretend that I am sitting on a beach in Hawaii, sipping on a Coconut Strawberry Daquiri. It get’s the job done.
Today though, I decided to expand my horizons to more than hand lotion…so I baked some Coconut Lime Bread. It also has pineapple in it, which I know we didn’t really talk about, but we all know that this happy little fruit is the epitome of Sunny weather. Right? Right.
Oh ya, there’s also a streusel topping. Made out of Macadamia nuts. I don’t know about you, but I just died. I’ve never met a streusel that I didn’t like, but one made out of macadamia nuts? New. Found. Love.
Don’t tell my husband.
You know what else? Let’s take this bread one step further. Go big or go home right? Are you ready for the best part? Drumroll please…
It’s totally gluten free and Paleo-friendly!
Which also makes it supa bikini friendly.
And, I’ll guarantee ya that it taste’s way better than hand lotion.
Not that I know anything about that. Although it does smell good enough to eat….
