The wedding has now come and gone and Steph and Andrew are now on the sunny beaches of Hawaii for their honeymoon while the rest of us get to stay home.
I am seriously green with envy (but so happy for them at the same time).
I tried to invite myself along on their 10-day vacation to that island paradise, but they didn’t even consider it.
So, I am dealing with the sadness of having to stay here- the most un-tropical place on Earth (Utah is a very dry desert!)- by adding a little “tropicalness” to my life (I don’t think that tropicalness is a word, but I am still going to go with it).
My family loves banana bread and at the end of each week, chances are that we have some bananas that are perfect candidates for banana bread.
I mixed it up this time by adding some of my favorite foods- pineapple and coconut- to my favorite banana bread recipe.
The result was a smashing success and received rave reviews from my entire family. Add a little “tropicalness” to your life and your banana bread with this simple and yummy recipe.
It’s quick, simple, delicious, and the perfect breakfast, snack or dessert.
banana bread add ins:
This bread is delicious as is with the pineapple and coconut. However if you don’t like either of those add ins, are a few we highly recommend:
- M & M’s
- Peanut Butter Chips
- Chocolate Chips
- Walnuts or pecans
- Cream cheese swirls
- Butterscotch chips
could i make these into muffins?
I have only made this recipe in a bread pan, but you could easily make this recipe using a muffin tin. It was so easy to make and full of flavor.
If you do make them in a muffin tin, we recommend spraying each hole with non stick cooking spray. You will also want to cook them for less time.
