If you're like me, you've got a decent list of various banana breads you cycle through. Maybe a Double Banana Bread this time, and a Banana Walnut Bread next time. I often find myself making various banana breads for breakfast. They're cheap and easy. Plus, we usually have bananas around.
Well, this time, I wanted to switch things up a bit. With the beginnings of this cooler weather, I wanted something just a bit tropical. Looking around, I had some coconut and not much else. But coconut's tropical enough for now, so it works for me!
We both liked a Banana Bread with more than just banana flavor. The shredded coconut added not only a nice flavor, it also gave the Coconut Banana Bread an extra bit of texture. I also threw some oatmeal on top, and you can do the same. Or better yet - use some of your shredded coconut!
