If you want to turn up the tropical flavour factor, stir in some chopped dried apricots, dates and/or candied ginger.

3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
3/4-1 cup shredded or flaked coconut
2 mashed very ripe bananas
1/2 cup sugar - white or brown
1/3 cup melted butter or canola oil
1/3 cup buttermilk or plain yogurt
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla

1

Preheat oven to 375°F and line muffin cups with paper liners.

2

In a large bowl, stir together the flours, baking powder and salt. Toss in about 1/2 cup of coconut. In another bowl whisk/mash together the bananas, sugar, butter or oil, buttermilk, egg and vanilla; add to the dry ingredients and stir just until blended. Don't overmix.

3

Divide batter among lined muffin cups and sprinkle with remaining coconut. Bake until puffed and golden, about 25 minutes. Makes about 1 dozen muffins.
