Coconut Pineapple Banana Bread

I have been in a Hawaii mood.  I have been feeling the pull to travel to warmer weather.  On our last trip to Hawaii.  I had a loaf of wonderful Coconut Pineapple Macadamia nut Bread.  I have been trying to replicate it ever since.  This is pretty close but not quite there. I forgot to buy the 
Macadamia Nuts.... Oops!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly grease 
2 ~ 9 x 5 bread pans
In a mixing bowl, combine the oil, sugar eggs and vanilla
Stir in the smashed banana's, coconut milk, pineapple and shredded coconut.
In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet a little at a time.
 Pour batter into baking pans and top with a little sprinkle of shredded coconut.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for 75 minutes,  let cool completely.  
*To check if the loafs are completely cooked.  Insert a knife into the center.  If it comes out clean it is completely cooked.


Aloha!
