  • 3 medium ripe bananas mashed
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 cup crushed pineapple still in juice
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons orange marmalade
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • GLAZE:
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1-2 tablespoons milk


  • Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease two 9-in loaf pans. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl with an electric handheld mixer, beat mashed bananas, sugar, pineapple, eggs, oil, yogurt, marmalade, milk, and vanilla until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, combine flour, coconut, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Gently fold flour mixture into liquid until just combined. Fold in chopped walnuts.
  • Scrape batter into prepared pans and smooth tops. Bake banana bread at 350F 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely on a wire cooling rack before removing from pans.
  • Prepare the glaze: In a small bowl, whisk sugar, juices, and enough milk to achieve a drizzling consistency. Drizzle glaze over loaves, slice and serve.
