Banana-Coconut Bread


1Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the bottom and 1/2 inch up the sides of an 8x4x2-inch loaf pan or line with parchment paper; set aside.


3In a large bowl stir together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture; set aside.

4In a medium bowl combine mashed bananas, brown sugar, coconut milk, egg, and oil. Add banana mixture all at once to flour mixture; stir just until moistened (batter should be lumpy). Spoon batter into prepared loaf pan. Sprinkle with macadamia nuts and coconut.

5Bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near center comes out clean, covering loaf loosely with foil for the last 20 minutes of baking to prevent over-browning. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack. Wrap and store overnight before slicing. Makes 12 (1 slice each) servings
