In the middle of cleaning out the freezer this morning, I noticed we had about 3 bags of frozen bananas that needed to be used. I decided to put together a recipe for a couple of loaves of Boozy Banana & Coconut Bread. Wow it turned out so delicious! I sent a slice with my momma when she went to pick up my little sister, and 10 min later, I received a phone call from her that she had already finished it and would like another slice to be ready for her when she arrived back home! Also so yummy with my afternoon cup of coffee!
