Coconut Banana Bread Recipe is going to be a new favorite with your family. . . we adore it! Over-ripe bananas are the secret to banana bread- the more over-ripe they are the better in my book because they add that awesome banana flavor and a lot of moisture to this lovely loaf.
Gram’s Banana Bread
So… if you’ve been with us for a while… you probably know that this banana bread is Gram’s. Gram rocked her cooking show in the 60’s and our blog is in honor of her. I’m (Madeliene) even named after her! My middle name is Louise. She died of breast cancer when I was 2 years old. Her legacy lives on through her family members, her recipes, and cooking!! We love sharing her with all of you through her moist and wonderful Banana Bread Recipe!
We love you, Gram!

& now… Fit Friday!
Miss Nichole from Pure Clean Fitness is at it again! A big WOOP for Fit Friday!
It has been a week full of treats, love, and candy. But, do you know what my week has not been full of? Guilt! Why? Because I still make time for my workouts and because life is too short to not enjoy a few Valentine’s Day cookies with the kiddos and a special treat with my husband.
Enjoy your treats, enjoy your moments.
While I am enjoying my treats I am also in marathon training mode. I have set a goal and I am keeping my eye on that through life’s moments. Today’s workout is getting us on the treadmill, yes the treadmill it is snowy and icy out, and working on goals and feeling awesome.
Remember; when running or walking on a treadmill you should not need to hold on. If you find yourself needing to hold on than you need to slow down. Suck it up, let go of the pride, and slow down the speed to a more manageable pace.
Throw last week’s core workout on to the end of this run and life is great! Have a sweet and sweaty day!
Coconut Banana Bread is the best way to use those over ripe bananas!
