Banana - Coconut - Chocolate Muffins

Event: Blogging Marathon #41
Theme: Breakfast dishes


A few bananas that had gone beyond the "over-ripe" stage and a teenager at home who had plenty of free time on her hands because of her summer vacation resulted in these muffins. My daughter wanted to bake something over the weekend and as usual her ideas were revolving around something "chocolate". Finally, we decided to try this recipe as finishing the leftover bananas was our primary goal. And my girl decided to add chocolate chips in the recipe as a compensation for not baking her favorite chocolate chip cookies. I gave her the ingredients and the instructions and she had the batter ready for baking. These muffins were real yummy with coconut flavor and I recommend the addition of chocolate chips to these muffins which add a sweet touch.

Ingredients: (Makes 7 - 8 muffins)
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup coconut flakes
2 bananas
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup coconut milk 
2 tbsp + 2 tsp coconut oil 
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/2 cup roughly chopped walnuts
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Substitutes:
1. Milk / any nondairy milk for coconut milk
2. Butter / oil for coconut oil
3. Pecans / almonds for walnuts

Method:
* Preheat the oven to 350 deg F. Lightly spray the muffin cups or use the liners.
* Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl.
* Mash the bananas in another bowl. Add sugar, oil, coconut milk and vanilla to it. Stir them together until combined well. Now add the flour mixture and stir lightly.
* Finally stir in the coconut, chocolate chips and nuts. 
* Spoon the batter to 3/4th level of muffin cups. Sprinkle some nuts, chocolate chips and coconut if desired.
* Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until they turn golden brown.

This muffins might have been quite flavorful with the addition of coconut milk and chocolate chips. I like the topping; the way the chocolate chip and walnuts are popping out of the muffin! Yum
