Banana Bread…

I had four really brown (disgusting) bananas hanging out on my counter which left me with two options a.) throw them in the trash or b.) make something banana-y. I decided to go with the latter and make some bread. I love banana bread especially when it is smeared with some butter. I have tried many recipes and have a great recipe that I use on a regular basis, but something intrigued me about the recipe I found on the Hungry Housewife’s blog. She posted about a banana bread that had coconut, walnuts and blueberries in it. This recipe looked and sounded delicious, so I thought I would go ahead and see if this was in fact the “Ultimate Banana Bread.” When I made this, I decided to leave out the blueberries…not for any particular reason, I just wasn’t in a blueberry mood. The recipe, as stated, makes two loaves, I decided to make 12 mini loaves and 1 regular sized loaf. The square muffin pan I used is from Target and is made by Calphalon. The recipe came together quickly and easily and I was almost drooling as this baked because my home was filled with the sweet nutty fragrance of banana bread. This is a great recipe and the coconut flavor adds a wonderful sweetness without being too over the top. Thanks for this great recipe, Leslie…I will make this one again! Enjoy!

I was just looking at some bananas on my counter that are way beyond "snacking". This sounds so good - I'm a total coconut fan!
