3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup white sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
3 eggs beaten
1 cup vegetable oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups mashed bananas
1 cup macadamia nuts
8 oz. crushed pineapple drained
1 cup flaked coconut
1 10 oz. jar maraschino cherries diced

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 2 9 x 5 bread pans.

In a large mixing bowl combine first 4 ingredients. Flour, baking soda, salt & cinnamon. Set aside. Combine white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, eggs, vegetable oil & vanilla. Add Dry ingredients to wet ones half at a time. Lastly add mashed banana, pineapples, coconut, cherries and macadamia nuts. Pour batter evenly into prepared bread pans.

Bake at 350 for 55-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely and enjoy!

I sometimes make these into muffins and bake 15-20 minutes.
