These muffins are absolutely amazing. I just made them but added a half cup of chopped walnuts and 1/4 cup of milk because I thought the batter seemed too thick and dense. Perfection! My eight year old daughter said they were the best muffins she's ever had. 8/3/15. Silvana and Daniella Arcadia CA.

Great tasting muffins! I made them for hubby's work and they were gone in an instant. Will keep this one handy.

I'm not sure if I messed up, but these were very dense muffins and I didn't like that. The flavor was good, but they were not light and fluffy like I like my muffins. I might try again and see what I can do.

Like any good baker, I felt the need to change the recipe to my own liking. I was also out of butter. Instead, I used 1/3 cup margarine and 1/3 cup sour cream to replace the butter. The result was ultra moist and spectacular. Thanks for the recipe premise though.

Very good! I did toast my coconut and I think I may have gone overboard with it but they turned out tasty!

Delicious! I used Splenda and unsweetened coconut, and adjusted baking time, and they turned out great. Thanks for posting this!

I have been meaning to rate these...I have made them several times, and they are soooo good! It really gives a change from the regular banana muffin/bread category and really gives a tropical taste to it. I used unsweetned shredded coconut and since hubby isn't too much into the coconut scene I reduced it to 1/2 cup in the batter and did not put any on the toppings. Personally, since I'm a coconut fanatic I would have done it, but since he doesn't care for it I just took it out. As it turned out, he did not even notice the coconut in it, and loved the muffin! Very moist and a keeper! Thanks so much for sharing!

Great recipe. I substituted the flaked, dried coconut with freshly scraped coconut... the result was excellent. The fresh coconut browned in the oven without having to be toasted prior. A bit sweet for my taste, even without the sweetened coconut flakes... I will lessen the amount of sugar next time.

These muffins turned out great! In fact, I made one batch & we liked them so much, I turned around & made a double batch. Really nice texture & rich flavour! I didn't bother to toast the coconut. I also got 12 medium-sized muffins per batch.
