We love all things bread! And these Coconut Bread Sticks are no different. It’s a great alternative to classic coconut bread. They’re soft, sweet, and fluffy. And the coconut filling is so tasty… if you love coconut, you’ll love these. As the Homemade Coconut Bread Sticks bake in the oven, the house will be filled with sweet coconut flavor. Yum! If you like it sweeter, it’s easy to add more sugar and modify it as you like. The texture is soft and fluffy on the inside and just a little crunchy on the outside. They look pretty too, thanks to the twisting technique. Make these tonight, you will be impressed!

Expert Tips

  •  If you want to skip the yeast, you can use baking powder instead. Use 1 tbsp baking powder and omit the yeast. You can also use yogurt instead of milk.
  • For extra coconut flavor, use coconut milk (or cream) instead of plain milk.
  • Make it gluten free by using a gluten-free flour, or almond flour.
  • If you like cinnamon, you can add some to the coconut filling. Raisins are also great when added to the filling.

Notes

– Make sure to use sweetened coconut and not unsweetened coconut. Otherwise you won’t have enough coconut flavor.

– If you want to make these sweeter, you can add an icing glaze. Simply mix together 3 tbsp icing sugar and 1-2 tbsp

– The dough can be a bit sticky. To make it easier to work with, knead the first part with an electrical dough hook, then continue to knead with your hands.

– To finish off the Coconut Bread Sticks, you can brush them with milk and sprinle with more raisins and almond flakes.
