Coconut-Pear-Banana Bread

I had some fun things left over in the pantry and thought that a loaf of banana bread was the perfect place to use up some coconut and sun dried pears. The Banana Bread recipe was found at Good Things Catered. Of course, you know me, I can't leave anything the way it is...So, I made my own changes to the recipe. Below is how I've prepared this delightful loaf of bread!

Coconut-Pear-Banana Bread
1/2 c. margarine
1 c. sugar
2 eggs
3 bananas, smashed (about 1 1/3 c.)
3 T. vanilla yogurt
1 T. lemon juice
2 c. Flour
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. coconut, shredded, unsweetened
1/2 c. sun dried pears, reconstituted in boiling water, then chopped

Beat margarine and sugar. Add eggs, bananas, yogurt, and lemon. Mix well. Sift in dry ingredients. Fold together. Fold in coconut and pears. Pour into greased bread pan and bake at 350 for 1 hour.
