Coconut Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by babygirl6109

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!
