Hawaiian Banana Nut Bread

We have alot of near black bananas at our house. I'm always buying bananas at the store because for some reason, they make me feel healthy. And when my kids eat them, I feel like I've done a good "mommy" deed. But, usually, one or two get old before we can eat naturally, I've made a lot of banana bread.

This recipe is my very favorite so far. The reason its called "Hawaiian", I believe, is from the one can of pineapples that you add. So don't think you're gonna have to hunt down papayas, mangoes, or coconuts at the local farmer's market. Dole's crushed pineapples work great!

The Mix

One to Eat, One to Give Away (my sweet neighbor, Peggy, was the recipient of this one!)
