Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 Del Monte Fresh bananas ripened and mashed
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a 9x5 loaf with parchment paper. 
  • In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the vegetable oil and granulated sugar for about 2 minutes, until the sugar in completely mixed with the oil. 
  • Add in the eggs and whisk well to combine. 
  • Add in vanilla, mashed bananas and sour cream. Mix well to combine. 
  • Mix in the dry ingredients. Stir until no lumps of flour is visible. 
  • Stir in shredded coconut and chopped walnut. Transfer the batter to the prepared 9x5 loaf. 
  • Top with more shredded coconut and chopped walnuts. 
  • Bake in the oven for about 45 to 55 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the banana bread comes out clean. 
  • Let the coconut banana bread cool completely before slicing. 

Notes

  • Add 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips for banana coconut chocolate chip bread.
  • To make toasted coconut banana bread, toast the shredded coconut in a pan over medium heat for about 5-10 minutes before adding them to the batter.
  • As always, to have the maximum banana flavor in the banana bread, use ripe bananas. The darker the bananas, the more flavor the quick bread will have.
  • Let the bread cool completely before slicing it so you can have clean slices.
  • If you're allergic to nuts or prefer to not have walnuts in banana bread, simply leave them out.
