"I have a long-tested banana bread recipe that is one my Grandma used to make. I have changed it up to add some coconut and mandarin oranges. I took them to work and people said they were wonderful."

Did it exact except used coconut flakes and less of them. Was delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

I always hesitate to rate a recipe that I've changed, but I know other people may benefit from my changes. I suspect this would have been 5 stars had I followed the recipe exactly. Since coconut is supposed to be so good for you, I subbed 1/4 C coconut oil + 1/4 C butter for the margarine. I used 1.5 C gluten-free flour + 1/2 C coconut flour. And I used fresh oranges. The coconut overpowered the other flavors a little, but that was to be expected, I guess. My family really enjoyed it and it will become a regular. I think it would also be good with pineapple instead of/or in addition to the oranges.

This is a great recipe! The coconut adds sweetness and a great texture. Very easy to pull together in a pinch. Had everything in my pantry! Great for breakfast! And a easy clean up!
