In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, soda and salt. Add walnut pieces and coconut. Mix well. In a separate bowl, add bananas and sugar and mash well with a potato masher. Leave some chunks of banana. Add vanilla and eggs to banana/sugar mix and continue to use the potato masher to incorporate. Add oil. Mix. Add banana mix to dry mix and use the masher to blend ingredients together. Portion into baking pans. This recipe makes 6 medium-sized breads or 2 large. The batter can also be used for muffins.

For the six medium-sized breads, place batter into a preheated 350 degree oven. Bake for 20 minutes, rotate and bake for another 20 minutes. Bread should just be set to the touch and slightly pulling away from the sides. Cool for 20 minutes before unmolding.

For the bananas: Prick six ripe bananas with a fork. Place on a foil lined cookie sheet and place into a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and allow cooling before using. They will be black and very sweet!
