Baking tuesday – Chocolate-Chip Coconut Banana Bread – townie

Baking tuesday really happened on Tuesday, but I didn’t get to post til today. Usually bananas go fast in our house, but for some reason this batch was sitting there going bad. This bread came out really good. Next time I would use more coconut and maybe sprinkle a bunch over the top before baking.

Don’t forget about my giveaway!
