Coconut Banana Bread (Gluten & Dairy Free)

If you’re like me you probably get tired of the same ole thing right? I always seem to have over-ripe bananas sitting on my counter, and half the time they end up in the garbage cause I just don’t wanna bake the same banana thing! LOL  This time though…..banana bread sounded really good. So….. why not try a new variation?! The result? The best & moistest banana bread with just a hint of that wonderful coconutty flavor. YUM. I love coconut, the taste, the smell, the crunch! This picture doesn’t do this bread justice. Plus by the time I got around to remembering to take a photo, it was a few days old… But that first piece, right out of the pan… omg….melt in your mouth deliciousness! I can’t wait for the next batch of bananas to ripen up so I can’ make it again! Anyhow, if you too have black spotty squishy bananas sitting on your counter (you better look, cause my bet is ya do! LOL) then I hope you give this one a try! Even hubby, who doesn’t really like coconut at all, enjoyed this banana bread. So….. here’s to a fast week! Enjoy 🙂
