If you have ever wondered what the inspiration is behind the recipes I choose to share with you then wonder no more!
It is usually this, oh I have two old brown bananas on my bench, what, of the ingredients that are in my pantry go with this! Or I have managed to buy 3 bags of apples what can I make, doubled up on cocoa, have to use up these oranges soon etc etc. Nothing more nothing less lol. Rarely will I head out and specially buy an ingredient unless it is for something very special. Which is why so many of my recipes are simple with basic pantry staples.
Which is how this recipe came about, two bananas were dying a slow death on the bench and I have several other recipes here that include bananas but wanted something different so wondered if banana and coconut would go well and boy did it work a treat!
This recipe creates such lovely lightly flavoured muffins that all three of my kids loved them…..a rare event!
I used finely desiccated coconut but if you prefer you could definitely use coarser coconut or threads, but I enjoyed having just the coconut flavour without the crunch of the coconut being too pronounced. A sprinkling of coconut on the top of the muffins before cooking is a nice touch too!
The muffins are simple to prepare, and create a nice dense muffin, I hope you enjoy this recipe, let me know what you think in the comments below!

Hi I can never work out the cup measurements for example what size cup u use sorry thanks
Hi, we use a 250ml cup here in NZ, so in google you can work out the grams, for example search “250ml cup flour to grams” and so on for each individual ingredient. 🙂

Just made these and they are delicious although a bit saltier than I’d like. Can you please confirm if it’s meant to be 1/4 tsp not 1 + 1/4 tsp?
Hi Melissa, you are right!! I am so sorry, I didn’t pick that up when I edited the recipe!! I will amend that now. Thank you so much for pointing it out. Anna p.s sorry about the salty muffins!!!
