2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups mashed ripe banana (about 3 bananas)
1/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt
3 tablespoons dark rum
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup flaked sweetened coconut
Cooking spray
1 tablespoon flaked sweetened coconut
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime or lemon juice

1. Preheat oven to 350.
2. Lightly spoon the flour into dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt, stirring with a whisk to combine.
3. In a large bowl, beat sugar and butter with a mixer at medium speed until well blended.
4. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.
5. Add banana, yogurt, rum, and vanilla; beat until blended.
6. Add flour; beat at low speed just until moist.
7. Stir in 1/2 cup coconut.
8. Spoon batter into a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with 1 tablespoon coconut. Bake at 350 for 1 hour or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan on a wire rack; remove from pan.

10. Cool before slicing.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This makes a great dessert if you warm a thick slice in the microwave and top with Cool Whip or vanilla ice cream.

You can also bake this in a 9x9 pan, just cut baking time to about 40 minutes.
