could you not make some muffins with oats and blueberries etc in it?

yeah, surely blueberry muffins are virtually a health food?
Or carrot cake is good too.
Or bread with sundried tomatoes and olives, yummy.
No recipes as am at work

Coconut bread

by Bill Granger - from bills food

Makes 8 thick slices

Preparation time less than 30 mins
Cooking time 30 mins to 1 hour

2 eggs
300ml/10½fl oz milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
350g/12¼oz plain flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
225g/8oz caster sugar
150g/5oz shredded coconut
75g/2½oz unsalted butter, melted
To serve
icing sugar

1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
2. Lightly whisk eggs, milk and vanilla together.
3. Sift flour, baking powder and cinnamon into a bowl, add sugar and coconut, and stir to combine.
4. Make a well in the centre and gradually stir in the egg mixture until just combined.
5. Add melted butter and stir until the mixture is just smooth, being careful not to over-mix.
6. Pour into a greased and floured 21x10cm (8x4in) loaf tin and bake in the preheated oven for one hour, or until bread is cooked when tested with a skewer.
7. Leave in tin to cool for five minutes, and remove to cool further on a wire rack.
8. Serve in thick slices, toasted, buttered and dusted with icing sugar. Makes 8-10 thick slices.

NB. You can freeze the cooked coconut bread. If you slice it first, you will be able to take a slice or two out as you need it. Defrost it then toast and serve as above.
