Coconut - Lime Banana Bread

WOW WOW WOW This is the best banana bread I have ever had. It is so moist. The combination with the lime and coconut is great. Try it!!

2 cups whole spelt flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 1/2 cups mashed bananas
1/2 cup safflower oil
1 cup Sucanat
vanilla from a 2 inch vanilla bean
1/4 soy yogurt
1 tsp cider vinegar
1 tsp lime zest

1/4 cup agave nectar
1 tbsp freshly squeezed, lime juice
1 tsp lime zest
1/2 cup shredded coconut

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil the baking pan and dust with flour. Sift the spelt flour, baking soda, and salt through a fine mesh strainer. Add the coconut, whisk it all together.
In a bowl, combine the banana, oil, Sucanat, vanilla, yogurt, vinegar, and zest, and blend until uniform and soupy.
Add the flour mixture. Blend for about 1 minute, until blended but still chunky.
Transfer to prepared baking pan.
Bake for 60 minutes or until a toothpick in the centre comes out clean and the edges have pulled away from the pan. Remove from the oven and let the pan sit for 15 minutes before removing the bread and transferring to a wire rack.
For the glaze, combine all the ingredients together and let it sit while the bread bakes. Pour it over the bread after it is transferred from the pan to the wire rack. Try to keep most of the coconut on top. It will stick more as the bread cools.
