A yummy tropical-tasting treat!

Top Review by Talicca

I won't rate these seeing as I made so many changes to "healthy them up", but I found the combination of peaches and coconut to be lovely! I used non-fat vanilla yoghurt instead of the butter, whole-wheat flour instead of the white, and low-fat dessicated coconut. I also cut the sugar to 1/3 of a cup, used weight-watchers canned peaches and added some of the juice from the can to balance out the dryness of the whole-wheat flour. Even with all these changes, they were excellent (though some people would think they weren't sweet enough). The only problem I had was that they stuck really, really badly to the paper muffin liners. I also found they tasted much better the second day. Thanks Roosie!
