Low Fat Banana Bread With Toasted Coconut Streusel Topping

This is my favorite banana bread recipe. It was given to me by a co-worker a few years ago. She brought the bread into work one day and asked if I would like a piece. I declined, I was never really a huge fan of banana bread. My co-worker insisted I try it and said that no matter what, I would like hers.  I did. She didn't lie. I was shocked. She gave me a copy of the recipe and I have been making it this way since. The only adjustment I made , is the toasted coconut streusel topping. I absolutely love toasted coconut and believe it is very under used. I also cut down on the oil and added applesauce to make this a lower fat version. It actually enhances the flavor nicely.

What I like the most about this recipe is that it contains no walnuts. I like walnuts in certain things, just not banana bread. I know, weird right?  The other thing is that this is prepared and cut more like a carrot cake and not sliced like bread. This recipe is baked in a large 13x9 pan, so this easily will serve 12 people.

It is delicious, you have to try it.  Use the comment section below to let me know what you think.
