Pineapple, Coconut, Banana, and Chocolate Chip Bread

I found this recipe on For the Love of Cooking.  I really like this blog because she makes tasty, health-conscious food.  She also loves Mexican food, so I like her already!  We couldn't go anyway Saturday because of the hurricane, so I decided to make this Saturday morning.  It started raining earlier than I thought it would.  I had my loaf in the oven at the time and was praying the electricity wouldn't go out before my bread was done!  Luckily, it didn't.  This bread was easy to make and was delicious!

Pineapple, Coconut, Banana, and Chocolate Chip Bread

1/2 cup of butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
2 very ripe bananas
1/2 cup drained pineapple tidbits
1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut (plus more for topping)
1/3 cup chocolate chips of your choice (I think I used Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips)
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Coat a bread pan with cooking spray.

Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl with a beater.  Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract.  Stir in the mashed banana, pineapple, coconut, and chocolate chips. 
Mix the flour together with the baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Add the flour mixture to the banana mixture until just combined.  Pour the batter into the prepared bread pan.  Sprinkle a little more coconut on top of the batter.
Bake in the oven for 65 minutes or until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool in the pan for 10 minutes; remove to a wire rack.  Slice and Serve.
