Banana Coconut Crunch Bread with Coconut Cream Icing is a simple quick bread that will add flavor to any morning! Made with shredded coconut, ripe bananas and walnuts!
Fruit never lasts more than a few days in my house. In fact, if there is such a thing as eating too much fruit, then I am pretty sure I do. I love everything from pears and apples to kiwi, papaya and bananas. I rarely have overripe bananas available in my house and I only eat bananas raw if they are barely ripe. I like them to have a little green on them but never any brown spots.
If I’m craving banana bread, I usually buy a large bunch of bananas, place on note on them that says “do not eat” and then wait for them to ripen. Trust me, buying a bunch of bananas just to wait for them to ripen is worth it once you taste a slice of this banana coconut crunch bread. Top the loaf with coconut cream icing and toasted coconut flakes and you have a unique twist on a classic recipe.
Ripe bananas, crunchy walnuts and sweetened coconut yield a banana bread that is flavorful, crunchy and delicious. Grab a hand mixer, a few bowls, a loaf pan and the simple ingredients and make yourself a loaf of banana coconut crunch bread.
For this recipe, I used my KitchenAid 9-Speed Hand Mixer and KitchenAid Professional-Grade Nonstick 9×5″ Loaf Pan. I love the KitchenAid hand mixers because they are perfect for quick breads, frostings and more. It is easy to adjust the speeds, and with 9 different speeds you can do everything from gently mixing in chunky ingredients to whipping delicate ingredients like meringue at high speed. The mixer is easy to use and makes clean up easy. The KitchenAid loaf pan is a great addition to my kitchen because it cooks evenly and is easy to clean.
