yamanana bread


yamanana bread is ideal for post-workout nutrition, breakfast and a quick complete snack. it is the perfect combination of protein (eggs), carbs (yam & banana) and good fats (coconut oil). there are many possibilities with this dish, so as always feel free to take some liberties with it. i don’t know exactly where this recipe originated from, so my guesses are the docs at franson family chiropractic, merrimack family chiropractic and bonfire health.


  • 2 large yams- baked, boiled or steamed & remove skin
  • 3 bananas (riper the better)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 2 tablespoons sifted coconut flour (or 1/4 cup almond flour/meal)- used to make this more of a bread than a quiche
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • pinch of sea salt
  • coconut flakes to top (optional)
  • 1 apple, diced to top (optional)


  • turn oven to 350 degrees
  • grease 2 glass loaf pans or a 9×9 glass baking dish with coconut oil
  • in a large bowl mash yams
  • add in bananas & mix together with a hand mixer
  • in a medium bowl, whisk eggs
  • whisk in cinnamon, nutmeg & salt
  • pour egg mixture into the yam & banana mix
  • stir in coconut oil
  • add in coconut/almond flour & hand mix until well combine
  • pour mixture into dish
  • top with coconut flakes and/or apple
  • bake in over for 35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean
