Super Food Saturday- Pineapple Banana Bread

Pineapple Banana Bread
I am reading a book on all the health benefits of coconut oil called " The Coconut Oil Miracle".  The book includes 50 healthy recipes using coconut oil. I've modified this recipe from the book.

Pineapple Banana Bread

1/2 cup liquid coconut oil ( or coconut oil melted)
1 cup loose brown sugar
1/2 cup crushed pineapple
2 very ripe bananas mashed
2 eggs
2 cups oat bran
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda

Set oven to 350 F.
Grease the bottom of a non stick loaf pan with some of the coconut oil.
Mash the bananas and add the oil, sugar, pineapple, eggs and vanilla.  Mix well.  mix together the oat bran, nuts, baking powder and baking soda. Fold into the wet ingredients.
Bake for 60 minutes.  Remove from the pan and serve.

Featured Super Foods: coconut oil, nuts
