Banana & Coconut Sugar Muffin

Muffin 1

Muffins are easy to keep for a week and can be had with your morning cup of coffee. I like to start my day with a muffin and some iced coconut sugar drink to beat the heat!

I used coconut oil for the first time in baking and  liked the texture of my muffins. It does leave a slight coconut flavor but I have no complaints.  Coconut oil is a good substitute for butter and vegan recipes. Some basic points to keep in mind for baking with coconut oil.
