Coconut Banana Crunch Muffins

  Coconut Banana Crunch Muffins a great way to use up overripe bananas and are a wonderful breakfast with a sweet banana muffin base and crunchy coconut top!

I realized that if I replaced a few slices of bread a day, I could make room for things like greens, fresh fruits, legumes, and that I would be getting more nutrients from the same amount of calories. Light bulb moment. Now, that isn’t to say that my love affair with bread ended there. Oh no. When I moved to Denmark four years ago I fell head-over-heels for bread all over again, except this time, it wasn’t light and fluffy – it was kind of like the
