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.
