Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This might be a good selection to add to the breakfast table Easter morning. It appears that I have all the ingredients in the house already. Therefore, this is something I could actually make up a day ahead, so the oven would be free, and I do so love coconutYes, I am adding this, it sounds delish!

I guess I cant rate this zero.....No fluid in this recipe??? mine is as flat as a pancake......??? HELP!!

Hello! - It's hard to explain why your bread turned out flat without knowing exactly what you did, but our thought is that you may have baked in a 9- x 5-inch pan and not an 8- x 4-inch pan. This would definitely make a difference. If you are using ripe bananas to mash, then adding oil and honey, you are definitely adding a liquid to the dry ingredients. There is also plenty of baking powder and baking soda to make the bread rise. Could you think of anything that you may have omitted or changed?

I've always been a fan of banana bread, but I've never seen it with coconut before! How wonderful!

Just made this coconut/banana bread and it's moist and delicious. I will certainly be making this again

Try using 4oz plain pureed pumpkin instead of the applesauce. This will make it nice and moist.

Can I use coconut oil instead of canola or any other oil?

We haven't tried making this with coconut oil, but we believe it should work just as well! Please let us know how it turns out! :)

can i used desiccated coconut? by the way what is the difference between shereded & desiccated coconut? Tnx

Shredded coconut and desiccated coconut are basically interchangeable. The main difference is that desiccated coconut is finely grounded, while shredded coconut is shredded. Shredded coconut also has a little bit more moisture than the desiccated kind. We recommend using shredded coconut for the texture and moisture, but you can use desiccated if that is what you have on hand.

No est prohibido a los diabticos ingerir pltano y miel?

Hola! Como la dieta de cada individuo es diferente siempre se debe consultar con su medico. Los platanos contienen carbohidratos como cualquier otra fruta. Si quieres mas informacion, por favor visita a la siguiente pagina del American Diabetes Association: http://www.diabetes.org/food-and-fitness/food/what == -can-i-eat/making-healthy-food-choices/can-you-sti == ll-eat-bananas-with-type-2.html

The first time I made this it was very dry. So the second time I made this I tried to think of something that would make it moister, the only thing I could come up with was a applesauce, so I added a single serving size 4oz container, wasnt a fan of this either. What can I add to this recipe to make it moister?

If your diet allows for a little more carbs and calories, you can try adding more banana and a little more oil.
