Coconut Banana Bread

coconut banana bread

Summer is almost over and what better way to celebrate the last few days than with a loaf of tropical coconut banana bread? Baking banana bread is one of my favorite ways to use ripe bananas.  I love coconut and we always have coconut flakes on hand so adding it to the bread was an easy decision.  The sweet ripe bananas and rich toasted coconut flakes make for an incredibly flavorful quick bread.  The sour cream adds a richness and moistness to the bread that will make you come back for seconds!     It’s so easy that no beaters or mixers are needed to whip up this delicious treat!  It’s great as is or with a light smear of butter.  It’s a wonderful way to enjoy a taste of summer all year long!

    How funny, I totally made coconut banana bread this am. I didn’t add coconut on the top, and I must say, the addition of it makes it look reeeeeaal purdy. I like yours!
