Coconut, Chocolate and Banana Muffins
You know those bananas in your fruit bowl… the sad looking ones that you look at…. you know they are too ripe, but you don’t want to throw them out?
Well it’s their lucky day! They can be combined with coconut, chocolate and muffin mix and be brought back to life again!
These muffins are lovely and moist, and the melty bits of chocolate make for a special treat. I took some to work for morning tea and there were not complaints. Hamsley and Dad enjoyed them too! I love chocolate and banana together, but the addition of coconut is just so perfect!Coconut, Chocolate and Banana Muffins Taste.com.au
