Made these, and shared them with some people I volunteer at the hospital with. At first I said coffee and coconut ?.. But these combined worked out real well. Very refreshing and the texture was great. I did leave out the salt, and used fat-free milk. Everyone enjoyed these greatly. Made for your win in Football Pool.

"Wow" says it all! These muffins are incredibly good. I used strong brewed espresso for the coffee and coconut milk instead of the milk. Also I used gluten free cake flour. They were perfectly done in 25 minutes, so moist and flavourful! The friend to whom I brought them for afternoon coffee already requested the recipe :) Thanks for sharing another keeper, Mike!

Wow! I am so surprised how good these are! I love coconut AND coffee, and these have such a great, distinctive flavor and texture. I would never have thought of putting these great ingredients together -- I love the walnuts, too. I will definitely make these again! It's a winner.

Good gracious these muffins are absolutely delicious! They are moist but not overly moist where they break apart, they have such a distinct flavor, simply wonderful! I actually had to freeze some to keep myself from eating the whole lot of 12! The only change was not to use walnuts but used almonds instead as a personal preference in nuts (well my DH is another nut but that is not in a recipe! lol). Thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing this recipe! It is absolutely perfect and I'll be making them so often I'll have the recipe memorized - I just know it!

These muffins were great! I'm not really a coconut fan, but I thought the batter looked like it would be good enough to stand on it's own, so I made them with no coconut or nuts. They were wonderful! After they came out of the oven, I brushed some water on the tops and pressed them into some sugar for a nice topping. These are so good with a cup of coffee in the morning. I think I will add nuts next time, but they were still so moist and yummy without the nuts! Thanks for posting.

I like them as you can take it as a brown bag breakfast or some afternoon treat by adding whipped cream to them to serve aside. Thank you!

These muffins are prob great w/morning coffee as you say, but I can testify they are also great w/Baileys & coffee at nite. I made a half recipe as written, using pecans vs walnuts. I did not have the courage to rely on your yield, feared I was over-filling the muffin cups, ended up under-filling them & got *bump muffins* ! They are nearly cake-like in texture, the coconut flavor shines & the bit of crunch from the dried coconut & nuts is divine. To disguise those darn bumps, I frosted 2 muffins w/your Jack Daniel's Frosting & topped them w/coconut flakes. *Yum* ! Thx for sharing this keeper recipe w/us. :-)

These muffins were so easy to do. I liked the smell of the coffee with the almond extract and vanilla :P I used only 1/4 cup of sugar and 1/4 cup of brown sugar, not packed. I used vegetable oil instead of butter. No walnuts, cause I didn't have. They turned out so good. They rise a lot. The taste of coffee and coconut together is really good. Perfect combination. Thanks Mikekey :) Made for 123 hit wonders.
