Coconut, Craisin Banana Nut Bread



Just what the world of food blogging needs - another banana bread. I was not going to even post this but my husband has just been going on about how good this banana bread is and that it is the best one I ever made so I figured that if that is the case, then I better post about it!! I have to admit that I like it too. It is the basic banana bread that I have posted before but since I had craisins, coconut and nuts I wanted to use up before they went bad, I just thew them into this bread. Also had bananas that I needed to get rid of. I seem to always have rotting bananas on hand lately. My husband, who has been dieting and lost 30 pounds (that is a good thing) has been existing during the day for the most part on bananas. I know, I know....that can't be healthy. I can't imagine having 10 bananas during the day would be healthy but he checked it out with his doctor and was given the ok...you got me! He eats only bananas all day and has a normal meal at night. Like I said, he has lost 30 pounds. I told him he better watch it or he will start turning into a monkey. I'll let you all know if his arms start getting longer and he starts swinging from the ceiling lamps...He has become quite the "expert" on bananas also. I constantly hear how most stores do not carry edible bananas. Most of them are way too green or they are rotting. I don't know, I normally don't have a problem, but then my day does not exist hunting for perfectly ripened bananas!!! Anyhow, when he does find decent bananas, he buys tons of them. Hence, the rotting bananas....I'll keep you all posted on how he is doing and if I see any primate habits developing!!!

I so so so love baking with bananas. They are tasty and versatile, and they go with almost anything. I am actually making a cinnamon banana bread today. Yours sounds delicious. I love the additions! I have even had it with butterscotch chips:)
