1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup flaked coconut

1/2 cup toasted nuts, chopped

1 cup mashed bananas (about 3 medium)

1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple, undrained

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 x 5 x 3-inch loaf pan.

In large bowl, stir together first 9 ingredients.

In medium bowl, mix bananas, pineapple, oil and eggs; add all at once to oat mixture. Stir just until liquid is absorbed and mixture is thoroughly moistened (do not overmix). Pour into prepared loaf pan. Bake for 50 minutes. Cool in pan 5 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely.
