Khanom Puto (A Steamed Sweet Savory Coconut Muffin)

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by julinaonfood

This is an Asian fusion recipe with the flavor of Thailand's Khanom Krok made in the style of a Filipino Puto Mamon. You can use a steamer, and some mini silicone muffin cups (if you don't have the proper puto making kit.)
