  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Grease 2 8x4” loaf pans or 1 9x5” loaf pan; I use cooking spray with no sticking problems; I used 2 8x4” loaf pans, and the resulting loaves were on the short side.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the whole wheat pastry flour, oat bran, soy powder, flax seeds, cornstarch, baking powder, and salt.
  4. Add the pecans (and optional coconut) to the dry mixture and stir to incorporate; set aside.
  5. In the bowl of your food processor fitted with the steel blade, place the Splenda, brown sugar, honey or barley malt syrup, butter, both kinds of lecithin, and xanthan gum; Puree together for about 2 minutes (this will help the lecithin and xanthan bind it all together).
  6. Add the banana, coconut milk, egg whites, and vanilla and coconut extracts to the food processor bowl, and puree again until well-blended; shake the can of coconut milk prior to opening it up so that the contents won’t be separated when you measure.
  7. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and use a rubber spatula to fold it all together; be careful not to overmix the batter or the finished product will be tough as a result of activating the gluten.
  8. Pour even amounts of batter into the loaf pan (s), and place in the preheated moderate oven.
  9. Bake until internal temperature reaches 185 degrees Fahrenheit; this took 36 minutes for 2 8x4” loaves in my oven today but will take longer in a 9x5 pan; look for a firm, lightly brown top and look for the sides to pull away from the pan (s).
  10. Chef notes: If you want to use your whole 14-oz can of coconut milk, triple this recipe (that's a lot o' banana bread-yay!); Also, if you want to eliminate the 1/4 cup of butter, just add an extra 1/4 cup of banana; the coconut milk, soy powder, lecithin, and flax seeds all have significant amounts of healthy fats in them so you should still end up with a moist tender bread; I haven’t tried that yet, so if you do, please inform us of the outcome in your review!
