Love these! One of the best muffins I have ever made. Moist, dense, baked up nice and high. Perfectly sweetened for me. I too like that the recipe only makes six, and the measurements are easily doubled for when I make them for company (which I will!) I liked the chocolate chips however next time I'll probably replace them with dried cherries or cranberries. Thanks a lot for posting!

This taste soooooo good!!! I had to substitute 1/2 cup of plain yogurt for the 1/2 sour cream, but it still tasted so great!!! It was so easy to make. I have a feeling this will become a family favorite

Made for Zaar Stars. These are great muffins. I like the fact that this recipe only makes 6 muffins (no work to figuring out half). Loved the combination of almond, coconut and chocolate chips! Thanks for posting this Hokies!
