The works Banana bread

I call this banana bread "the works" because I wanted some banana bread, but no the usual ho-hum kind...but something with a little kicked up jazz in it :)  so I started out by adding nuts..then I saw the chocolate chips and went hmmm..then saw the coconut and thought heck why not then saw the peanut butter??? LOL  then before you know it, it had everything in it :)  kinda like the kitchen sink where it means that you throw everything in.. you know the works.... so put what you like,, white chocolate chips, toffee chips, no nuts, nuts everything works... enjoy

The works Banana bread

2 bananas,  mashed with a fork until completely soft
1/2 cup EACH white & brown sugar
1/2 cup applesauce
1/4 cup oil
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt
splash of vanilla
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup finely chopped nuts
1 egg
1/2 cup peanut butter (can use chunky and skip the nuts)
