  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare 12 muffin cups with paper liners.
  2. Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt into a bowl; set aside. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition, then beat in the bananas and rum extract. Stir in the flour mixture. Fold in the shredded coconut and pineapple; mixing just enough to evenly distribute. Evenly divide the batter among the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 25 minutes.

This recipe turned out moist and tasty! However, I had to alter the recipe: I used margarine instead of butter because we were out of butter. I used 1/2 tablespoon of VANILLA extract instead of ...

I'm always looking for ways to use up ripe bananas...these were really moist and I liked the taste of the coconut and pineapple. Next time I think I'll increase the pineapple to at least 3/4 cup...

Great taste. I left out the rum extract. Substituted vanilla.

THESE WERE AWESOME! I used slightly less brown sugar than called for (and may alter it next time to use honey or agave instead as I prefer not to eat 'sugar', anyone have any suggestions on mak...

I thought this was an innovative muffin recipe so I tried it out. I did change a couple of things: I dont like shredded coconut much so I omitted it except for using a little as a garnish on the...
