Bananas and pecans add flavor, sweetness, and crunch to your standard crumb-topped coffeecake.

Banana Coffeecake with Pecanas

We go through a lot of bananas around here. I enjoy Monkey Salad fairly often as it’s one of my favorite healthy sweet treats. FishBoy15 works out on a regular basis and bananas are a great post-workout snack for him. The rest of the crew enjoys them as a readily available fruit. Remember how thrilled they were with Magic Monkey Bananas?!

I need to do that again.

I love to buy the small “lunchbox” size bananas. They are the perfect size for the littles, well, and for me to. Since bananas are always under $1 a pound, sometimes as low as 47 cents, they are a cheap fruit to keep on hand.

Inevitably though I can overbuy. We end up using the very ripe bananas in smoothies, like this Coconut Mango Banana version or just freeze them sliced to stock the Smoothie Station.

Bananas are also the perfect baking ingredient, making a lovely appearance in Chocolate Banana Marble Cake,  Banana Cupcakes with Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting or Coconut Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips.

What is it with bananas and chocolate?!

Recently, I featured banana in one of our favorite coffeecake recipes. Yum! This crumb and nut-topped confection disappeared in a flash. You could add chocolate chips if you wanted. Ahem.
