Toasted Coconut Banana Bread

Bananas getting brown?  Time to make banana bread, but who wants to make the same banana bread every time?  Mix it up.  Toasted coconut gives this banana bread a great added flavor boost with a nice twist on texture too.  This recipe only has 1/2 cup sugar so it’s not too sweet, I like that.


1¾ cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup mashed ripe bananas
1/3 cup oil
2 Tbl buttermilk (milk is ok)
1 tsp vanilla
1½ cups flaked coconut, toasted

Preheat oven to 350°.  In large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Make a well in the center.  In a medium bowl combine eggs, mashed bananas, oil, milk, and vanilla, mix well.  Add egg mixture to flour mixture, stir just until combined.  Fold in toasted coconut.  Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.  Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until pick inserted near center comes out clean.  Cool in pan 10 minutes.  Remove from pan, cool on wire rack.
