This recipe may have a misprint in the size of the bread pans. I used four 3 1/4" X 6 1/4" pans, and I had enough left over for an additional loaf in a 5" x 9" pan! It also took about 1 hour and 20 minutes to cook, and the prep took longer than 20 minutes, also. I did not toast the coconut, and I used light brown sugar instead of dark brown, but other than those two minor changes, I followed the recipe exactly. This is indeed a very dense bread, and I'm sure that was the reason for the extra needed cooking time. As far as the flavor is concerned, the banana flavor was hidden by the primary flavor of cinnamon, with coconut being the next flavor I detected, and I don't think anything would be gained from actually toasting the coconut. If I make this again, I think I will do muffins, so the dough will be done without over-browning.
Definitely will make this again, delicious and healthy. I made these into large muffins for a quick morning grab and sprinkled extra nuts with a half date on top. Greased and floured the tins but omitted the white sugar and cinnomin

Add a little sour cream for a deliciously different banana bread.
With this much banana flavor, it just had to be called “banana banana.”
