Banana Coconut Muffins

I was in the mood for some new muffins...I had some ripe bananas to use but didn't feel like making banana bread.  Enter good ole Pinterest, a search for "banana" and in front of my eyes all sorts of inspiration!  I picked this recipe from ZagLeft because it had a short list of ingredients, and had coconut :-)  Here is the recipe:

Banana Coconut Muffins | Addicted to Recipes
Banana Coconut Muffins

3 ripe bananas
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup flaked coconut

Preheat oven to 350F.  Prepare muffin tin (I lined with paper liners).

In a large bowl mash the bananas, add in the melted butter, egg and vanilla, mix well. 

In a separate bowl. combine the flour, baking powder and salt.  Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, combine just to mix.  Fold in the coconut.  Spoon into the prepared muffin cups.  Bake 22-25 minutes.  Remove from oven, cool and serve.  Enjoy!

I wasn't overly thrilled with these, however, the kids loved them. Inhaled them, actually.  For me, there was something missing...maybe some walnuts.  Yes, I'll have to give them another try with walnuts, because really, I have never met a muffin that I didn't like!
