First I mashed four medium bananas, added in 1/4 cup melted butter, 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp salt and gave it all a good stir with a wooden spoon. Next I folded in a big handful of chopped cashews and about 1/2 cup of coconut(unsweetened) I found on the pantry shelf . After 55 minute sin a 350º oven we had a warm, slightly tropical breakfast treat, and no more bananas on the counter.

Bananas For Breakfast
I can only walk by a pile of browning bananas for so long. Sometimes I toss them in the freezer for a future baking project. Today I decided to take the matter in hand and whip up a quick banana bread for James' breakfast. Quick being the operative word.
