Banana Coconut bread makes a great dessert or a nice sweet snack. Whenever we have bananas that are getting a little too ripe for eating by themselves we make up some banana bread. One time we decided to try adjusting our recipe to include coconut and BAM, we had a new favorite. Over time we made some adjustments to make it perfect and now we’re sharing it with you.

When we make banana coconut bread we alternate between adding chocolate chips or no chips. It really depends on the mood we’re in. This recipe has chocolate chips for a little extra sweetness.

When you serve it, you can either just slice it up and eat it or another really popular option is to add a little whipped cream to a slice. The whipped cream combined with the banana and coconut makes an incredible dessert.
