Coconut Banana Bread

9:27 PM
I could make Coconut Banana Bread every day.  It has become one of my personal favorites.  I think it is the combination of the coconut, bananas, and butter that makes it so moist and yummy.

Any Banana Bread recipe I come across, I am going to jump on it. That is exactly what happened with this recipe. A sweet friend of mine gave me a recipe for banana bread that does not call for any milk, sour cream, yogurt, etc. I have never seen a recipe that didn't call for some sort of dairy product. I couldn't wait to try it, and I am here to tell you that this is the moistest Banana Bread ever.

A "Little" Tidbit
I like to dice my bananas instead of mashing them. This way you get a more flavorful banana taste with every bit.

  1. I've never had banana bread with coconut but since I'm a huge coconut lover, I would love to try this. I bet it's delicious! And that is actually a very good tip about the bananas. I never thought of that, but I'll give it a try next time. Thanks!

  2. *sigh* If I could just get ANYONE in my family to eat anything with coconut, I'd make this in a minute. It looks so delicious.

  3. i love the coconut addition.

  4. Wow! What a unique recipe. I have lots of bananas in the freezer that I have to use up..and I also have some coconut ;) It looks delish!

  5. Kay! Seriously, this is the most delicious banana bread I ever had, and it's the only one I am making anymore. It even went international (with the proper credits of course :) ) and was very well loved and appreciated in South Korea!
    Keep these delicious posts coming!
