Coconut muffins.

coconut muffins :: keep it simple

Simple coconut muffins! Great for lunch boxes!
Millie and I made these today!


150g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
100g sugar
50g desiccated coconut
125ml milk
3 tbsp coconut oil, melted (could use butter or sunflower or rice bran oil etc)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg, beaten

Add the coconut to the milk and soak for an hour or so.

Preheat oven to 180°C/Gas 4 and line a muffin tin with 12 small paper cases or could make 6 large muffins.

Sift the flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add the sugar then the wet ingredients. Fold together, scraping the sides as you go, until combined.

Divide into cases and bake for 20-25 minutes until skewer comes out clean. These would be finished perfectly with some runny icing (icing sugar mixed with a small amount of water) but the cupboard was sadly lacking icing sugar!

One thought on “Coconut muffins.

  1. yum, your beautiful muffins just make me get in the kitchen immediately and bake something, I really miss the flavor of shredded coconut in the baked goods, the aroma in the oven is too good ^^
