Manila Bananas-Banana Bread

Desiree Taimanglo-Ventura


I took a regular banana bread recipe from Good house keeping, replaced the milk with coconut milk, increased the amount of bananas called for to 2 cups, and replaced the regular bananas with manila bananas from my uncle's trees. Came out yummy.

Chopped walnuts are optional.
