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!
