Six Banana Coconut Muffins on a large glass plate with coconut shavings

Muffins in the morning are great!  They’re easy to grab and go, you can make them with healthy ingredients and they keep the kiddos full until lunchtime.  The Banana Coconut Muffins I made a few weeks ago will definitely be on our rotating breakfast menu.

This recipe is a variation of the banana bread I’m so fond of making and what could make that banana bread recipe any better you ask?  My answer…the addition of sweet little flakes of coconut.

Banana and coconut are so good together!  These little muffins are perfect to eat with a glass of juice or milk on a busy morning.  They also make hearty and healthy after school snacks or even packed away in the lunchbox for dessert.

Muffins that are warm, moist and perfectly sweet.  What could be better?
