I found this recipe years ago to use on my Ostara alter and found it so much prettier if the coconut were colored with pink and blue food colorings;it really brought out the other colors around it and picked up the alter to be more festive! :)

A note on the oil; if you want a healthier bread, use 1/2 cup applesauce instead of the oil. It doesn't change the taste and takes out a LOT of fat!
