Hello Lovelies! I am so happy to be visiting today! Kassi was so sweet to invite me to be a “Bloggie Bestie” this week. You know what that means? Yup, she’s over on my blog, right now! Feel free to go say hi and check out her delish post HERE.

So I thoroughly stressed over this guest post. I over-think things. Guest posts terrify me. How can I possibly fill the shoes of an amazing blogger (such as Kassi) for a day? Will their readers like what I have to say and share?

So, I decided to share a recipe my readers loved!
Introducing… Bananas Gone Coconuts Muffins!

The idea for these yummy treats came about one Sunday afternoon. We are one of “those” families…. green banana eaters. Once they start to turn completely yellow, they are rarely eaten. If they start to get those little brown dots… forget it. They are destined for pancakes, bread, or smoothies. Bored of the same old thing, I decided to try something different.

These sweet babies are made from just about as “scratch” as you can get. And are pretty easy!

Here’s what you will need:

3 cups flour

3 ripe bananas

1 1/4 tsp. baking soda

1 1/2 sticks salted butter (melted or room temp)

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1/2 cup sugar

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1/2 cup milk (evaporated or coconut milk would be a good substitute)

1 cup shredded coconut

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, mash the bananas. beat in sugars, eggs, and butter. Then blend in flour, baking soda, vanilla extract, and milk. Lastly mix in the coconut.
Makes 24 standard cupcake size muffins. Boo Boo calls them cupcakes, and my hubby agrees, a good homemade cream cheese frosting would turn these quickly from “muffins” to cupcakes! I think next time, I’m going to add some fresh raspberries!

I would love to hear how yours turn out and any variations you make!

Thank you again, Kassi, for sharing your readers with me today!
