Banana Bread with Coconut & Chocolate

Had a bunch of over ripe bananas and wanted to try something new.  Boy was this good!  Even my daughters who don't like coconut liked this.  Great warm with a little butter spread on it and a tall cold glass of milk...mmmm need I say more?

1 cup mashed bananas
3 /4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup grated coconut 
1/4 cup coconut oil
1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

1. Whisk the flour with the cocoa, baking powder, cinnamon powder and salt.

2. Beat the egg and sugar together till fluffy and pale lemony in color. Then fold in the mashed bananas and the grated coconut. Sprinkle the baking soda over this mixture and fold it in.

3. Then add the coconut oil in a thin trickle and mix it well into the batter. Finally, fold in the flour in 3 additions.

4. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Pour the batter into a greased medium sized loaf pan and bake for about 45 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean.
