Coconut Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

A friend made some of this bread for me and it was delicious! She was kind enough to give me the recipe. I am putting it in my blog so I don’t loose it. I am going to make some of it later this week once I have had time to get all the ingredients.

Coconut Banana Bread:

2 C. Flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 C. sugar
1/4 C. butter
2 eggs
1 1/2 C. smashed banana
1/4 C. yogurt
3 Tblsp. Dark Rum (or extract)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 C. sweetened coconut
1/2 C. Chocolate Chips

Preheat oven to 350.
Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs and beat until smooth. Pour in vanilla and rum. Beat in the bananas and yogurt. Add the flour, soda and salt. Once well mixed add the coconut and chocolate chips. Pour into sprayed 9×5 loaf pan. Sprinkle with either a little bit of coconut or a mixture or brown sugar and oatmeal.* Bake for 50-60 min.

The topping is supposed to be a lime glaze: 1/2 C. powdered sugar and 1 1/2 Tblsp. lime juice. This topping goes on afterwards, it is good but just makes the bread a little messy
