A very simple muffin recipe. Try them with your favorite hot beverage for an early morning treat. Quick note: if using sweetened coconut, eliminate the honey.

I greatly modified and they turned out great- coconutty moist and just sweet enough. I accomplished this by doubling the ingredients (yielded about 16 muffins) and substituting as follows: added 1/2 tsp baking powder boiling rice milk for boiling water 1/2 cup honey. My young girls love them too! Will make my modified version again! Read More

This recipe was REALLY BAD! The yield was 6 not 12 muffins. They did not brown at all. I did not use honey because I used sweetened coconut (as directed in recipe) and there was virtually no flavor. After removing them from the oven they collapsed. The result- flavorless yellow clumps. On the plus side they smelled great! Read More

This was the only coconut muffin on your site so I tried it. It has no leavening agent so came out like lead. Therefore I can only think that it was a forgotten ingredient? I'd like the person to put it in if it was forgotten - is there any way you can let them know? Read More

Taste is very particular but delicious. My friends say that it's the kind of taste you love or you hate nothing in between. After reading previous reviews I added 1 teaspoon of baking powder. Next time I'll bake'em I will double quantities because thy're rather small. Read More

I for one didn't like this recipe. The muffins didn't rise like they were suppose to. They need sugar or something to give some sweetness. Some of the family members in the house hold tried them they didn't like them either. I will not be making these again. I may play around with this recipe to make it sweeter and more tasteful.
