Banana Pineapple Coconut Mini Bundt Cakes

This recipe doesn't really have a good story behind it other than the fact that I had two over-ripe bananas that needed to be used up. Those bananas, along with a can of pineapple and some coconut oil turned into these delicious Banana Pineapple Coconut Mini Bundt Cakes!
This recipe makes a lot so I shared them with Faye, my Parents and some coworkers. Based on the positive feedback I received from everyone, this is a recipe I will definitely be making again! The cakes are easy to make, super moist and have lots of flavor, all thanks to two leftover bananas...

I hope you give this recipe a try.
Happy Cooking!
