Banana Coconut Muffins

These are a quick and easy muffin to make and a good way to use up some very ripe bananas. I am not sure how long I have been making these, but the recipe came off a package of Flavorite sweetened, flaked coconut.

Banana Coconut Muffins

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup of sweetened, flaked coconut, divided
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil (I use canola)
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon of vanilla
3 bananas, mashed
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease or line 12 muffin cups.
Mix the flour, 1/2 cup of coconut, baking powder, baking soda and salt together.
In a separate bowl, mix the sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla together. Add the dry ingredients. Add the bananas and the walnuts if using. Fill the muffin cups. Sprinkle the tops of the muffins with the rest of  the coconut. Bake for 20-25 minutes. This makes 12 muffins.
