I’ve gotten into the habit of buying two bunches of bananas at the grocery store – one yellow and the other green. That way the yellow ones are ready to be eaten at the beginning of the week and the green are ready at the end of the week. This has worked very nicely for our family of five. It also means that there are often a couple leftover for baking purposes. I’m always down for that!
These aren’t your standard banana muffins. These banana muffins are sun-bathing on the beach at a tropical destination. This is a fun, summery twist on a classic. The coconut on top toasts as it bakes and adds a delightful crunchy texture to the muffins. Then, I drizzled a tart-sweet lime glaze over the top and really took them to the next level of tropical indulgence.
@mooselvr6 Yes, a standard 9-inch loaf pan. And probably around 40-45 minutes or so. I would recommend lowering your oven rack a notch so that the coconut doesn't get overdone during the longer cooking time. :)
