Recipe Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup mashed ripe banana (about 1 medium)
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease and flour 8-inch square pan with vegetable shortening.
  2. In large bowl, combine flour, oats, coconut sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt; mix well.
