A New Twist on Banana Bread

Having a partially empty nest these days is not always easy!  I am still having trouble with making too much food and having way too many leftovers!  Ben was able to come home for Easter weekend and brought a friend with him.  He had planned to have 2 friends with him.  Knowing these guys would probably be hungry all the time, I purchased extra foods, especially fresh fruits, so that they could have healthful snacks.  A lot got eaten, but the bananas just sat there…mostly untouched, although a few were taken.  As you well know, a banana is only good if it is just the perfect shade of yellow.  Too green or too spotty and they get ignored.

I decided to use my favorite recipe for banana bread which I posted shortly after we began this blog.  You can see the recipe here:

Since I had no zucchini, I decided to make a few changes to the recipe, and the result was  yummy!  To the dry ingredients I added 1/4 cup cocoa powder, and  I used flaked coconut instead of the zucchini.  Serve with cream cheese for a wonderful snack!
