Whole Grain Banana Coconut Bread

While this site already has numerous recipes for banana bread with a coconut theme, this one is unique in its emphasis on a whole grain flour base. The coconut flavor is subtle-- if you like a strong coconut flavor, up the amount of coconut extract, and include the optional fresh coconut. As with many of my recipes, this one calls for ingredients that are "nonstandard" (i.e., weird!...the province of health nut fanatics!), but go out on a limb and try it--your taste buds won't be disappointed.
