Banana Coconut Muffins

Coconut is one of those things that I go in and out of enjoying.

I also tend to forget it exists until it pops up again on my radar.

So when I saw the recipe for Banana Coconut Muffins (aka, Five Kinds of Awesome) over at the No Slivers Here blog, I figured it was time to re-incorporate coconut into my cooking.

And these.are.that.good.

I could’ve eaten them all as soon as they came out of the oven! YUM!

I swear, a little dollop of whipped cream on top, and these bad boys would taste like pie!

Note: The recipe says it makes 8, 1/2″ deep muffins. But I never buy specialty sized muffins tins, so I used my standard 12-muffin tin. I got 10 muffins.

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 very ripe bananas, mashed (3/4 cup)
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted
2/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut

Directions
– Preheat oven to 375°F. Line muffin cups with liners.
– Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.
– Whisk together bananas, butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, and 1/2 cup coconut in a large bowl until combined well, then fold in flour mixture until flour is just moistened.
– Divide batter among lined muffin cups and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup coconut.
– Bake until muffins are puffed and golden, about 25 minutes.
– Transfer muffins to a rack and cool slightly.

Edit: I’ve entered this recipe in Joelen’s Culinary Adventures blog event — Marvelous Muffins!
