Banana Coconut Muffins

YUM! I got this recipe from my friend Jenn after she raved about them. ( This was my first attempt at making muffins from scratch and I was amazed at how easy it was!

Servings: Makes 8 (For some reason I ended up with 15. Who knows?)

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

Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line muffin cups with liners. (I used my silicone muffin pan and just sprayed on a little Pam) Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in bowl. Whisk together bananas, butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, and 1/2 cup coconut in large bowl until combined well, then fold in flour mixture until flour is just moistened.
Divide batter into 8 muffin cups and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup coconut. Bake until muffins are puffed and golden, about 25 minutes. Transfer muffind to a rack and cool slightly.

I am glad that you liked them also! I think that I may have doubled the recipe, so it should make 16. I am making them again today, so I will see if I did double the posted recipe. Glad you said something!
