Between all the homework and studying I always seem to find time every couple weeks to bake. I love baking and one of my favorite things to bake right now is bread. This past Thursday I baked banana bread. This wasn't just any old banana bread though, this bread had toasted coconut flakes. Totally genius idea on Linda's part. It tastes delicious. I used this lovely recipe Banana Bread. I added a few things though: I replaced 3/4 c of flour with whole wheat flour and I added 1/2 t cinnamon, 1/2 c of toasted coconut and 1/2 c walnuts and left out the chocolate chips!

I used bananas that I had frozen for this recipe. A few weeks ago my local grocery store had $1 bags of overripe bananas so I bought two, ate as many as I could and froze the rest. I froze them whole, in their skins. The skins turn brown in the freezer, but the banana inside is fine. Before I left for school Thursday morning I put a bag of the frozen bananas in the refrigerator. They get a little mushy which is kind of gross but also exactly what you need for banana bread! When I was ready to use them I just tore off the top and the banana just slides out. Only a little mashing was needed to separate it. I was happy that I finally got to use my new (old) masher! :)
