This is a very good tasting muffin, fast and easy to prepare. My tin was smaller so I got 10 muffins; with this in mind I reduced the baking time by only 3 minutes. Charishma thank you for this great recipe. Now I must hide three for DH or there will be none left after the kids come home from school!

These muffins are well worth 5 stars!Delicious!I doubled the recipe and got 17 muffins.I made a few changes.The batter was a little heavy so I used 3/4 cup of milk instead of 1/2 cup.I also used 1 1/2 cups of coconut and 1/2 tsp coconut extract.I omitted the salt,I don't use salt in anything I bake.I increased the sugar to 3/4 cup.The final change was that I added a cup of toasted chopped almonds into the batter.Love these muffins,will be making these again for sure!

Very Tasty, and not too sweet. In my efforts to cut back on fats, I substituted applesauce for the oil. The muffins turned out very flavourful and moist. They didn't brown as much as in the photo, but that may be in part to the lack of oil. I will definately be making these again. I ended up with 9 large muffins.

These were sooooo good! I got 9 large muffins from this recipe. My oven bakes hot, so I did them at 350 for 19 minutes and they were perfect!

Very good muffins. I used baking soda (and therefor used half of the powder amount) because it is what I had. The only drawback for me is the margarine like taste to it (I assume it is from the veg oil and the oil in the coconut). I will try tinkering with that next. Thanks for a good base recipe

I made the same changes that Luuvbunny suggested but I didn't use coconut extract or almonds and I did use salt. We really enjoyed these. They were pretty easy and quick to make. I packed these up for my husband and his friends when they went out on a boat trip. He came back with an empty container! Thanks for sharing!

These muffins are very good! The only addition I made was to add 3/4 cup chopped, dried pineapple. I used my jumbo muffin tin and it made 6 muffins (not quite to the top). A nice way to start the day! Thanks, Carole in Orlando
