White Chocolate and Cinnamon Chip Island Style Banana Bread Mini Loaves

Tags: , ,



Mouth watering? These little banana bread loaves are such a treat! Sorry for the ridiculously long title, I’m known for having mile long titles for my recipes. This is my entry for The Banana Bread Bake-off with Not Quite Nigella. There’s still time to get your entry in, check it out. I’m always up for a good bake-off!

Also, do check out Phemomenon’s blog for her very sweet”Blogging for Babies” Little Wonders Event round up!

I was brainstorming as to what kind of banana bread I wanted to make and I started thinking of some of my favorite ingredients right now. Cinnamon chips, white chocolate and coconut. These little loaves were the perfect combo of my favorites right now and are so tasty. I highly recommend trying them when you see you need to use up those bananas! Who can resist that sweet drizzle? Not me!

Don’t those cinnamon chips look yummy inside?!

This is how I prefer it, more drizzle please! Enjoy everyone!

White Chocolate and Cinnamon Chip Island Style Banana Bread Mini Loaves

1 1/2 Sticks softened butter
1 Cups sugar
2 eggs plus ½ egg beaten
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
½ small box vanilla pudding mix (4 serving size)
1 Cups flour
4 ripe bananas
1 Cup shredded sweetened coconut
1 Cup white chocolate chips
1 Cup cinnamon chips

¼ Cup butter, melter
½ Cup powdered sugar
2-4 Tablespoons hot water
1 Cup shredded sweetened coconut, toasted in oven (350 degrees) until browned.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream the butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs until smooth. Add cinnamon, baking soda, salt, pudding mix and flour until combined. Stir in bananas, coconut, white chocolate and cinnamon chips.

2. Pour batter into 16 mini greased mini pans. Bake 25-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean from center of each loaf. Let cool.

4. Mix melted butter and powdered sugar until combined, it will look separated. Mix in 2-4 Tablespoons of hot water until desired consistency.

5. Drizzle over each loaf and top with toasted coconut shavings.

    Mmm, I like how you topped it with icing. Finger lickin good :]

    Also like how you used pudding mix. It really makes it better and moist :] I’ll sometimes use it when I make Cinnamon Rolls :]

    I made my banana bread recipe yesterday for this event… haven’t posted about it yet!!

    This looks like a wonderful dessert-style banana bread. I LOVE cinnamon chips, but I’ve never thought to add them to BB! Brilliant!

    Thanks Patsyk!

    Lori,
    I try not even looking at all the food events going on, because I’d never get anything done around my house! However, I’ve always got time for banana bread! And plus I had 4 mean looking black bananas staring at me in my kitchen! Can’t wait to see your bread!

    Yum yum! Question for you: where did you get those adorable blue bee plates? My sister-in-law does the bee thing (our last name is Bybee, after all), and I’d love to get her some…

    Jenny says:

    Thanks Stephanie,
    They do look kind of fancy don’t they!

    Hi Melanie,
    Definitely need to be a sweet tooth to enjoy these little breads!

    Me too Deborah, I love coconut.

    Hi Kameron,
    I get a lot of my little random dishes at thrift stores. I got the little blue plate at DI in Mesa. It was probably a few weeks ago. They had more, maybe they’d still have some. They were a whole 25 cents. Isn’t that fun!? Good luck, hope you find some.

    Hi Helene,
    One of my favorite things about making banana bread is how wonderful the house smells when it’s in the oven. Yum!

    These look so decadent. Really beautiful pics, too.

    I googled “Starbucks coffee cake recipe” today, and guess who’s blog came up?!
    I forgot that you made that.
    I made coffee cake muffins, but I totally screwed them up. Oh well.

    I made these little loaves yesterday and they tasted great. I will definitely be keeping this recipe. The only thing is my glaze looked nothing like yours…..not white. The taste was very good though.

    Glad I found your blog site.

    Jenny,
    I love your blog. I stumbled across it a few months ago. I am wondering where you buy your cinnamon chips. I have looked and looked here in WA with no luck. Any suggestions?
    Thanks!

    Thank you for everyone’s nice comments! Megan, I had a hard time finding them myself, but finally the SuperTarget by myself started carrying them. If you have a Super Target close by that’s where I’d check first. Good luck!
