I have been on a serious coconut kick lately! I just can’t seem to get enough of it. Especially toasted coconut. The other day I had some very ripe bananas on my counter. They were either going in the trash or into something yummy. I decided to combine my latest kick (coconut) with the ripe bananas and made up a couple loaves of the most delicious coconut banana bread.
I think this bread turned out so good because the banana bread recipe I have is already so good. And the addition of coconut just adds to it’s already moist consistency .
But then to go and top it off with a coconut glaze and toasted coconut! It makes this over the top GOOD!
If you’ve never had toasted coconut or don’t know how to make it, don’t worry. A few weeks ago I shared just how easy it is to toast coconut. And if you like regular coconut, I’m sure you will love toasted coconut.
I like using the smaller loaf pans so I can share them with our friends and neighbors. Plus when I eat smaller slices, I think it’s ok to eat more! 🙂
This bread is not just for breakfast. It would be a great addition to any brunch or dessert.
One of my most favorite recipes is this chocolate chunk pecan banana bread.
