unfortunately we weren't crazy about these. I found them really dry. I don't usually like things sweet so I was pleased that the recipe only called for 1/4 could've used a little more though. I didn't use the choco chips, so perhaps that could've made the difference. I will continue my search for the perfect muffin...

These are like yummy trail mix in a lovely earthy-textured muffin. I made a few subs- I used buttermilk rather than yogurt, sucanat instead of sugar and whole wheat pastry flour rather than white. They turned out really well. I really liked the texture; they are a little coarse and bran-y but not terribly strongly bran flavored and they don't have the spongy texture of other bran muffins. The bran just adds a little roughness to the texture and makes the muffins overall lighter, I think. I thought the coconut was a really nice touch, and I really liked the chocolate chips, which I don't normally like in baked goods other than cookies. I think these would make a really great after-school snack, though we ate them for breakfast. I really did love these- I liked the fact that they had 2 different kinds of dried fruit, nuts (I used walnuts), chocolate chips and coconuts- just a total smorgasbord. Like I said, like trail mix in a muffin. Good moistness and I really enjoyed the texture, but don't expect a cake-like muffin; its a little more bready. A keeper in my book. I loved these and I'm looking forward to making them again, maybe with some variations.
