Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch loaf pan.
  2. Make the flax egg by stirring the warm water and flax seeds together. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Stir the dry ingredients together and make a well in the center.
  4. In a separate medium bowl, whisk the mashed banana, brown sugar, coconut milk yogurt, coconut oil, and vanilla.
  5. Next, pour the wet ingredients and diced nectarines into the well created in the dry ingredients. Gently fold everything together until the flour is fully combined (be careful not to over mix).
  6. Pour the dough into the prepared loaf pan. Lay thinly sliced nectarines over the top of the dough and bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick into the center comes out clean.
