Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ cup butter

  • 1 cup brown sugar

  • 2 large eggs

  • 3 medium bananas

  • 1 tablespoon rum extract

  • 1 cup shredded coconut

  • ½ cup chopped dried pineapple

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare 12 muffin cups with paper liners.

  2. Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a bowl; set aside. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition, then beat in the bananas and rum extract. Stir in the flour mixture. Fold in the shredded coconut and pineapple; mixing just enough to evenly distribute. Evenly divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups.

  3. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.
