Banana Coconut Muffins
Banana and coconut are so good together! These Banana Coconut 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.
Servings: 12 muffins
- 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 ripe bananas
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 8 tablespoons butter , melted
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line muffin cups with liners.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
Mash two of the bananas with a fork in a small bowl so they still have a bit of texture; set aside.
In another large bowl, blend together the remaining banana, sugar, melted butter, egg and vanilla.
Slowly mix in the dry ingredients just until incorporated. Fold in the mashed bananas and the coconut.
Pour the batter into the muffin cups and bake until golden, about 25 minutes. Transfer muffins to a rack and cool slightly.
