Put the Lime in the Coconut Muffins

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!
