Luckily, this summered-up version of classic banana bread makes sure you don’t commit the eighth deadly sin and let all that peachy goodness go to waste. Up the summertime vibes by adding some coconut to the mix, and you’re well on your way to fruity bliss. Is it just us, or can we hear the waves crashing with each bite?
