Coconut Banana Bread

Since I am planning on making a clean eating banana pudding, I grabbed 2 bunches of bananas the other day while doing my shopping; however, I had to order the coconut butter I need for the pudding online and I realized today that my bananas won’t make it until the butter gets here since it took so long to ship. Usually 2 bunches of bananas wouldn’t be an issue, but my girls are staying at my in-laws’ farm for a few days, and while I can eat one or two bananas a day, they’re already really ripe and need to be used (or frozen) rather quickly. I decided to use some and freeze some, and instead of whipping up a smoothie (for once), I decided to make some Coconut Banana Bread. I timed it just right so that I could have a slice after my workout along with my banana flavored post-workout recovery shake and the bread turned out to really hit the spot!
Since I don’t usually care for nuts in any of my breads, but others in my house do, I compromised and used 1/2 cup of finely chopped walnuts in this recipe. If you enjoy nuts in your banana bread, you can up the nuts to 3/4 cup or even a full cup.
