Recipe by Olha
This recipe is an old time favorite. Serve them for breakfast, a snack or as dessert. These muffins pair wonderfully with chocolate and coconut for a yummy result.

My DH absolutely loves these muffins (he loves chocolate and coconut). I originally got the recipe from Taste of Home and have made them several times. The last time I made them, I threw in part of a bag of miniature semisweet chocolate chips (maybe a little more than a cup that I had left over from another recipe) - and he was practically in chocolate-and coconut heaven. : )
