       Title: BANANA HEALTH LOAF
  Categories: Breads, Low-cal
       Yield: 14 servings
  
   1 1/2 c  Whole wheat flour, divided
     1/2 c  Coconut, unsweetened shredd.
       2 ts Baking powder
     1/2 ts Baking soda
     1/2 ts Salt
       1 c  Mashed banana (3 small)
       3 tb Vegetable oil
       2 tb Liquid honey
  
   Suggestion:  reserve 1/4 cup flour.  Low fat recipes have a tendency to be
   too dry.  Bake about 35 min in 9x5 loaf pan or muffin cups if 8x4 pan not
   available.
   
   Mix together 1 1/4 c. of flour, coconut, baking powder, baking soda and
   salt in a bowl.  Combine banana, oil and honey. Stir into flour mixture
   quickly but gently until just combined. Add part of the remaining 1/4 cup
   flour if needed.  Batter will be lumpy.
   
   Spread batter evenly in a lightly greased (and/or waxed paper lined) 8x4
   loaf pan.  Bake at 350 F about 45 min until tester inserted in center comes
   out clean. Cool 10 min in pan. Turn out of pan, cool completely on rack.
   Wrap in waxed paper and store overnight before slicing.
