Tasty Tuesday: Banana & Coconut Muffins

These and all things like these are my greatest downfall.

I leave off the coconut on a few of the muffins for non coconut lovers…like my son.

These are really dense, rich and moist. I adore banana and coconut flavors together. So…so…perfect.

Banana Coconut Muffins by Heather McCullah


1 box spice cake

1 pkg coconut cream instant pudding mix

4 eggs

1 cup sour cream

1/2 c water

1/2 c vegetable oil

2 mashed ripe or over-ripe bananas

8 oz cream cheese or vanilla frosting

1 & 1/2 cups toasted coconut


1. Prepare muffin pans with paper liners or grease & flour them.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

3. Mix cake mix, dry pudding mix, eggs, sour cream, water and vegetable oil for 2 minutes with mixer or 3 minutes by hand.

4. Fold in mashed bananas to the mixture.

5. Fill muffin cups with mixture until approximately 3/4 full.

6. Bake in preheated oven until done (will be around 25 minutes depending on your oven).

7. Let muffins cool.

8. Frost muffins with store bought or homemade frosting. (I don’t go heavy on the frosting…just a little something to hold the toasted coconut on with). I used cream cheese frosting on this batch.

9. Toast coconut in dry frying pan for about 1 minute and 30 seconds over med-high heat, tossing frequently.

10. Lightly sprinkle lots of toasted coconut on top of each frosted muffin.
