    These muffins are a blend of two recipes. They have a wonderful "Island" taste and combine my families love of Key Lime Juice and Coconut.

      I really liked these a lot. The flavors are interesting and refreshing without being overpowering. I made small muffins and got a perfect 18, baking them in my metal muffin tins and getting a clean toothpick and toasty coconut at 12-15 mins. My only complaint is that they are a bit dry but I suspect I may have over baked them a little. I'll definitely try them again in the future and play with the baking time a bit. Thanks for the keeper!

      Aloha - these were quite tasty -- did read the reviews first, mixed the coconut into the dry flour mixture before adding the liquid ingredients, and just because it's a habit for me to add 1 teaspoon of vanilla to just about anything that is baked and doesn't include this ingredient, it when in too. The lime juice was some that had a great deal of pulp -- had juiced these last summer, gotten from local farmers' market, so most likely not key lime -- they had been frozen in an ice cube tray for later use and stored in zip-lock freezer bag. The recipe is a keeper -- think the addition of that little bit of vanilla complimented the lime/coconut flavor. To increase the coconut flavor next time, I might try using coconut milk in place of regular. Did find that the muffins did not rise well -- were a little dense -- so must have altered the recipe a little too much, as others noted the cake-like texture. Will make again -- know with some additional work on my part, this will become a 5+ star recipe, the flavor is excellent! One thing you know about cooks -- we all add our own twist! Thanks for posting.

      Very good. I used Real Lime powder since that's what I had in the house and they turned out wonderful! Everyone in the house loved them and I sent the recipe to a few friends.
