Banana Chocolate Chip Coconut Muffins

Banana Chocolate Chip Coconut Muffins are the B-E-S-T!!! These muffins are filled with bananas, coconut, walnuts, almond flavoring and chocolate chips. They have great texture and flavor. They’re also very easy to make! I have to admit I love muffins. Anything with Bananas or chocolate chips or both suits me just fine. 🙂 Even gluten free muffins are some of my personal favorites.

Earlier this month I made a meal for a friend and his family after he got through eye surgery. For the main meal I brought Chicken Chalupa, Carrots in Creamy Vegan Dill Sauce, “Cracked Out” Sweet Cornbread and Blueberry Gooey Butter Cake Bars. While I made Banana Chocolate Chip Coconut Muffins for breakfast, several family members decided to have these for dessert instead! In fact, I got rave reviews from the patient who enjoyed these delectable muffins right after dinner.

Banana Chocolate Chip Coconut Muffins are amazing. They have so many different things going for them. We absolutely adored these muffins and believe you will too once you give them a try. You’ll be licking chocolate off your fingers and devouring every crumb. 🙂

    These muffins look so good! You have the best muffins on your site, Teresa! I love that you added coconut and chocolate chips. It must be a great combination. I hope you are doing well and that your summer has gone well. Are you enjoying your new house? We just got our permit from the county and the loan from the bank last week and are scheduled to start building in a couple weeks. We are so excited!

      Yay! How exciting. Home building is great, but I recommend you be on the site every single day. We found all kinds of things messed up (everything from plumbing in the wrong places, light switches not in conducive locations, broken stuff. Because we were so active telling our builder what was done incorrectly we had very little problems after the fact. It’s a learning experience that’s for sure.

      Thanks for your kind comments about the muffins, Shari. You know I RARELY made muffins until after I started this blog. Now I love to make them. I also enjoy experimenting with new combinations. I hope you give these a try. They’re really terrific.
