Pineapple Coconut Banana Bread

There is nothing better than sleeping in on a Saturday. The one day of not be awaken by an alarm and need to iron work clothes. Amen to weekends!

I have a couple recipes planned for this weekend. One involves beer and I'm super excited to share it.

It's been awhile since I've let bananas turn brown. Instead of going with this recipe or this one, I opted to add a few different ingredients: pineapple and coconut. It's very tasty! The pineapple and coconut is not super strong but adds more texture to the bread.


We like the bread warm with a little butter and honey. Delish.
