- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
- 3 to 4 small firm bananas, sliced
- 1 tablespoon pineapple juice
- 1 carton (12 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
- In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, oats and baking powder; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition (mixture will appear curdled). Stir in coconut.
- Spread in a well-greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Bake at 325° for 25-30 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool completely; crumble. Set aside 1/4 cup for topping.

I made this to take to a church dinner and everyone enjoyed this trifle. They was none left.

This was a good recipe but I modified it slightly. I made a package of banana pudding and added it to the layers. I think next time I will use two packages. Was very good, it tasted like a mixture of a banana and coconut cream pie.

This is a delicious dessert that is perfect for birthdays, anniverseries, even something as simple as a girls night out.I give this a total thumbs up!

I have made this recipe over and over - in fact, I often "get in trouble" if I don't bring it to family dinners! It is easy and delicious and I very seldom have leftovers. However, I don't recommend using store bought macaroons. This homemade mix is great!
