"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...

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!
