Whenever I have some over ripe bananas I whip up a batch of these muffins. At first the combination of banana and coconut seemed odd but they come out moist and delicious.
Banana Coconut Muffins
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 very ripe bananas, mashed (3/4 cup)
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut
Set Sun Oven out to preheat.
Whisk together flours, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Whisk together bananas, butter, sugar, egg vanilla, and 1/2 cup coconut in a large bowl until combined well, then fold in flour mixture until flour is just moistened. Divide batter among lined muffin cups and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup coconut. Bake until muffins are puffed and golden, about 40 minutes. Cool muffins on a rack.
Makes 8 muffins.
