Banana Coconut Cake or Muffins

I promised I'd write up my banana coconut cake! It really is yummy, if you like banana and coconut (I do).


4 overripe bananas, mashed well
1/2 - 2/3 c. sugar (I've been going with 1/2 to cut back on the sugar...)
1/3 c. oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 T. ground flaxseed
1.5 - 2 c. water + 1 tsp apple cider vinegar (or you can use half water/half orange juice to give it an interesting extra flavor)
combine well.

Add:
3.5 c. whole wheat flour
3/4 c. shredded coconut
                                                                                    1/2 tsp salt
                                                                                    1.5 tsp baking powder
                                                                                    Mix well 
Optional - 6 oz chocolate chips, folded in (last step)

Bake in a loaf pan if you like, or you can make 12 generous muffins out of this, or you can bake in your favorite cake pan. It's a really versatile recipe. (Bake at 350 F/175  C for 25-30 min for muffins, or about an hour for loaf or cake)
Optional: sprinkle more shredded coconut over the top before you bake it.

Enjoy! Let me know if you try them!
