Not your Momma's Banana Bread

I always have sad looking bananas - I don't even know why I keep buying them... but instead of the joe shmo banana bread... my friend has a GREAT recipe for the island girl in all of us.

Hawaiian Banana Bread by Julie Nef

3 eggs, beaten
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups mashed ripe bananas
1 (8oz) can crushed pineapple, lightly drained
3 tsp. vanilla extract
3 cups flour
¾ tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup chopped macadamia nuts (optional)
¾ cup grated coconut

Mix first five ingredients until well blended. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon batter into 2 greased and floured loaf pans. Bake at 325 for 1 hour (to 1 hour and 10 minutes). Remove from pans and let cool on wire racks before serving.
