Making this delightfully different twist on traditional banana bread is fun. It tastes excellent spread with cream cheese or butter. When I take this bread to bake sales, it really goes fast. I also make it in small loaf pan to give as gifts. I discovered the recipe in 1955 and have been making it since.

My grandmother made this bread for as long as I can remember, and I've been making it ever since I learned how to bake. Children love it for a snack, and it's good to serve at any meal. It's another delicious way to use zucchini, which is so abundant in late summer. —Eva Mae Hebert, Lafayette, LA
"Banana bread has always been a favorite in our home," writes Lisa Green of Kunkletown, Pennsylvania. "As I was mixing up a batch one afternoon, I decided to add a cup of oatmeal and some chocolate chips. The yummy result was an immediate hit!"
This recipe has been a family favorite for several years. The addition of coconut, orange peel, pineapple and nuts gives a new twist to a loaf of banana bread. It's so good I sometimes serve slices of it for dessert.
