Here is a twist on a traditional muffin.

Top Review by Crochet Mama

I really liked these, and so did my kiddos (4yo and 1yo). I didn't have any coconut, so that was not added, and I had a lonely plum in the fridge, so that was peeled, chopped, and added to the mix along with the other fruits. I also did not have to bake these as long; 25 minutes was enough.
I'd like to try these again, with brown sugar for half of the sugar called for.
