These muffins are really easy to make and don’t take long either.  The topping: 1 tablespoon desiccated coconut and 1 tablespoon demerara sugar is optional but it does a a lovely crunch to the top once cooked.

Keep you eye on the muffins when 20 minutes are up and check to see how they are doing, you want them to be a lovely golden colour.

These Banana and Coconut Muffins are lovely and moist and have a very light texture.  They can easily be eaten as a snack or for breakfast… well whenever you really feel like it 🙂

I hope you have a lovely weekend and that you will have lovely weather.  I have been able to sit outside for the last few days as the weather has been too lovely to stay indoors.

I hope you enjoy xx
