    We have had this discussion a million times, but my family is a banana loving family. And by family, I mean Ellie & Jorge. Lyla and I like bananas too…just a normal amount.

    However, Lyla and I are giant coconut fans. Combine those two together and you get Coconut Banana Crunch Muffins!

    I buy two bunches of bananas every week and sometimes we have a couple leftover that turned too ripe before Ellie got to eat them. It’s amazing that we ever have any considering that kid could eat a banana with every single meal!

    The only thing Ellie might possibly love more than bananas is muffins! That girl is just like her mama — a true carb lover.

    I have made so many banana muffins for her, like my Nutella Banana Swirl Muffins and Brown Sugar Banana Muffins.

    Sunday morning I had a couple of bananas sitting on the counter begging to be used up and I decided to bake up a quick batch of muffins for breakfast to surprise the girls.

    I almost made my Banana Dream Cake, but after seeing Ellie’s face light up at the site of the muffins I knew I made the right choice.

    As you can see by that adorable face (sure, I am a little biased), these Coconut Banana Crunch Muffins were a great hit.

    I made a dozen and they were all gone in just two days! The girls kept pointing at them during dinner asking to have one — so they even got to have one for dessert!

     

    These Coconut Banana Crunch Muffins have a glorious crunchy sweetened toasted coconut top and the actual muffin itself is moist and full of banana flavor…and even more coconut.

    They come together in just a few minutes — without a stand mixer — and into the oven they go!

    Yield: 12 standard muffins
