Tropical Banana Bread

Banana bread is a totally awesome way to use up overripe bananas...but add some crushed pineapple, coconut and spice and a tiny bit of orange glaze and you're in Paradise!

Tropical Banana Bread
3 C flour*
2 C sugar*
1 t salt
1 t baking soda
1 t cinnamon
1 t nutmeg
3 eggs
1 C oil*
2 t vanilla
1 15 oz. can crushed pineapple, drained
3-4 smashed ripe bananas
3/4 C coconut
Mix oil and sugar; add eggs; stir in pineapple, bananas and vanilla; add dry ingredients and coconut. This makes two small loaves (4 1/2 x 8) or 5 mini loaf pans (3 x 5)
For extra deliciousness glaze with a little powdered sugar/orange juice glaze.
***You can substitute 1 C wheat flour for part of the white; you could also replace half the oil with applesause and reduce the sugar by half...but I just gave up on being healthy and went for yummy! It's so good no one will get more that one or two pieces...
