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!

Lovely tasting, delicately sweet and very moist. Thank You Roosie! July 27, 2006

What a wonderful muffin. Not too sweet. I was worried at first I thought they were too "runny" but they turned out perfect. I also was overwhelmed by all the prep work, but it really was not that bad. I made one mistake I thought I had canned peaches and it was apricots I had but I followed the rest of the recipe and they turned out great !!!!
