Banana Pudding Gone Amazing

My friend Nicole made this and calls it "Banana Pudding with a Twist" but I think it should be called Banana Pudding Gone Amazing because it truly is amazing!

Pre-heat oven to 350.  Makes an 8x8 dish, for 9x13 double the recipe.

1/2 cup butter (1 stick, softened)
1 cup flour
1 cup coconut flakes
1/4 cup white sugar
1 box instant banana pudding
2 cups of cold milk
2 bananas sliced thin
1/2 container Cool Whip

Combine butter, flour, coconut flakes and sugar in a bowl until a crumbly mixture forms.  Put the crumbs on a baking sheet and bake for about 30 min (stirring once or twice so it cooks evenly) until light brown.  Allow to cool.
Make the instant pudding as per directions on box.
In a 8x8 dish put 1/2 coconut mixture.  Gently top with banana pudding, then a layer of thin sliced bananas, cool whip and the remaining coconut mixture.
Refrigerate until served.
