I have a long-tested banana bread recipe that is one my Grandma used to make. I have changed it up to add some coconut and mandarin oranges. I took them to work and people said they were wonderful.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, 20 to 30 minutes.
