The in-laws were here and I needed to make something for breakfast.  The guys decided to not to go out in the woods (shocking to me and slightly disappointing!  ha!) so I decided to use the couple of bananas that were getting overripe and make a coffee cake to go with their morning coffee, and this turned out to be breakfast altogether!

This moist coffeecake is complimented by the brown sugar nut topping, giving it that little extra something that makes it a special treat!  You can eat this without the topping also if you would rather not add the calories and extra sugar, however even with the topping its not too bad calorie wise!
