Banana Bread Recipe with Coconut and Lime Glaze
This banana bread has a little extra zip with the addition of coconut and lime. This banana bread recipe is extra moist and easy to make. I love baking them in small loaf pans that you can just grab and go.

  2. Mix butter and sugar in large bowl until incorporated, add eggs, mixing well.  Add vanilla.
  3. Mash bananas in separate bowl, add to egg mixture.  (Make sure your bananas are soft enough to mash, but I don’t use overripe bananas in my bread.)
  4. In a separate bowl mix together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt , blend well,  add to egg mixture.  Mix until slightly incorporated.
  5. Add the 1/2 cup of pecans and 1/2 cup coconut, stir.  Place in 1 large or four small loaf pans.  Bake at 350 – large pan 35 min, small pan 25 min, or until done.
  6. Place 2 tbsp of coconut and 2 tbsp of pecans on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 5 minutes being careful that they don’t burn.  Remove when the coconut is slightly brown.  Set aside.
  7. Add the butter, brown sugar, and lime juice to a saucepan. Heat over medium heat until bubbling, let bubble for 1 minute.  Stir in the toasted coconut and pecans.
