Delicious Banana & Coconut Muffin Recipe

Welcome sweet friends to Natasha in Oz! Thank you so much for popping by to say G'Day!

This week I am sharing a delicious Banana and Coconut muffin recipe that my sweet daughter Maddy made for us.

Maddy is studying Food Technology at school and she loves cooking (I used to call it Home Economics but today the cooking component is known as Food Tech and the sewing component is called "textiles"!)

This week she whipped up a batch of banana and coconut muffins and a banana cake and they were delicious!

So here is Maddy's adaption of a recipe for Banana and Coconut loaf that came from Best Recipes

Banana and Coconut Muffins

Ingredients:

1 ½ cups self-raising flour
1 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup sugar
1 cup mashed banana
1 cup coconut milk
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla essence.

First Maddy sifted the flour and mixed the dry ingredients together in a bowl. We also added some LSA mix, which is ground linseed, sunflower and almond and it is a great source of essential fatty acids and fibre. We add it to so many things like oats, smoothies, yoghurt, muffins, cakes, cookies...anything that takes our fancy really!

Then she mashed up 3 very ripe bananas.

In another bowl Maddy mixed all the wet ingredients together. She then poured the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mixed everything together until just combined.

She poured the batter into a cake tin and into a muffin tray and we baked everything in an oven set at about 160/325. Our muffins were cooked after about 15 minutes and the cake took about 45 minutes.

Here are the finished banana and coconut muffins! They were absolutely divine! I think it was the coconut milk that made the difference...what a taste sensation!
