Coconut Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

A twist on the classic banana bread, replacing the traditional walnuts with coconut flakes and chocolate chips. I combined and tweaked several traditional recipes to come up with this one. Some suggested additions or substitutions: white, dark, or milk chocolate chips instead of the semi sweet and/or adding chopped macadamia nuts. Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease 9x5x3 loaf pan.

  6. Bake for 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.

Very moist bread!! I like that it is somewhat healthy too with the bananas and applesauce rather that oil. The coconut and chocolate chips are a nice touch, the chips were nice and melted when served warm. Made for 2012 Spring PAC.
