 This Pecan Coconut Banana Bread has to be my favorite banana bread recipe of all time!  It’s the ultimate banana nut bread recipe, so super moist and packed with pecans and coconut.   Like it wasn’t amazing enough already, it’s also topped with a deliciously crumbly streusel topping!

Even better, this recipe doesn’t contain a ton of butter and fat, it doesn’t need it!  The bananas keep it plenty moist!

This recipe is really easy to make, no special tools required!   Like all quick bread recipes, you’ll want to be sure not to over mix the wet and dry ingredients, just combine until moistened.  Over mixing the ingredients causes a tough & chewy bread.

    1. Hi Leesa, that should turn out fine. A lot of other readers have used greek yogurt with great results.

    1. Hi Karen, you can but you may want to add a dash of vanilla extract for a similar flavor. Hope that helps!

    1. We have only made this as written but sour cream or mayonnaise should work in place of the yogurt.

  1. I seriously LOVE this banana bread recipe. I will never make plain banana bread again! Only thing I do is add an extra tbsp of flour to topping.5 stars
