Recipe: Banana Coconut Bread



I love bananas, and after finding two in my fruit bowl that were very soft I decided to mix up something very quick. Banana bread is one of the easiest things to make. I also had ends of a trail mix that contained dried cranberries and cashews, I had some flaked coconut in my fridge that also needed to be used. I decided to add them all in. So I made a banana coconut bread that my friends loved.
