Hawaiian Banana Bread with Coconut & Pineapple

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full Disclosure Policy for details.

Hawaiian Banana Bread with Coconut and Pineapple is moist and a tropical treat! This quick bread is full of coconut flakes, crushed pineapple & ripe bananas.

Y’all, this tastes like a little slice of Hawaii came to the Midwest…

A pineapple quick bread that is so easy it comes together in minutes, combined with chewy coconut and moist banana.

Families, your kids will go nuts for this! Or should I say, bananas???!?!?!

I’ll let you in on a little secret. I’m not really a banana lover but I LOVE this coconut banana bread. Like, love it so much I hurry I’ve been known to take the last piece which is supposed to be against the mom code.

That’s how much I like it.

Btw, did you know the Pioneer Woman doesn’t like bananas either? I like to think we’re besties that way. Right, Ree? I know you’re following me…

Then, I couldn’t decide what category to put pineapple bread into….breakfasts, desserts, snacks?

How about we just call it delicious???

How to make homemade Hawaiian Banana Bread

Like any quick bread, this recipe doesn’t require rising time.

Basically, you combine the ingredients like instructed, bake and let the kitchen fill with tropical aromas.

Tip: If you want to get fancy you can sprinkle some extra shredded coconut on the top before baking.

I used unsweetened coconut flakes from Trader Joes and I’m sure other stores carry them too. The extra sweetness isn’t necessary, but it’s probably a bit easier to find sweetened coconut flakes. I know our local Aldi even carries coconut flakes! My point is, either one will work.

You can bake this in a normal, 9×6 loaf pan, or make banana bread into mini loaves (this pan is so cool!) and give as gifts. Heck, you can make these into Hawaiian Banana Bread pineapple muffins if you want!

Allow to cool, then eat. It’s awesome on its own, but you could add butter or softened cream cheese to increase the awesome factor.

What can I make with leftover crushed pineapple?

Have you ever made a recipe and you’re left with half a can of food randomness? Yep, I get that.

Well, the first logical way to use crushed pineapple is, of course, to put it on top of a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Everything is better with ice cream!

Or you could use it in crushed pineapple recipes like Pineapple Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese or our family’s legendary Orange Fluff Jello Salad.

I made tha Hawaian bread, turn out great. Was wondering if you could put spiced rum into the batter to give it a little more flavoring ?

I am just wondering how big your 1 banana was. We typically buy small to medium sized bananas. It would be easier if the measurement was given in cups. Any idea how much I would use? 2 of the sized bananas I buy would make about 1 cup. This sounds like a yummy recipe & I would like to try it soon!
