Mango Bread (gluten free)

Recently champagne mangos have continually been on sale.  I cannot get enough of them!  And if you remember, a few weeks ago I made a loaf of bread and a dozen muffins.  The coconut mango muffins were a hit, perfect in texture.  But as for the bread I wasn’t pleased.  Mango adds a lot of moisture and my ration of wet to dry goods was out of proportion.  Sometimes I have a hard time finding the balance when I bake gluten-free.  With this in the back of my mind I decided to tweak the recipe and try again.  Definite success this go around.

When baking gluten free I have discovered it’s smarter to bake in a smaller loaf pan (7×3) or in this instance using a larger pan for a thinner loaf.  Eggs are what bind the ingredients together and large loaves can end up crumbling.  No fun!

Almond flour made up the base of the dry goods.  I added in a tablespoon of coconut flour for its absorbency powers.  My choice was to add in coconut flakes and a few mini chocolate chips.  These are optional ingredients but I can’t imagine why you would skip them :).  You can always use a few nuts too.
