Tasty and moist but needs either some spices or coconut extract for a more intense coconut flavor.

These muffins are very good ! The only change I made was I used 1/2 tsp . of coconut extract and 1/2 tsp. of almond extract. I'll be making these regularly. Thanks for a great recipe !!

Great tasting muffins that are simple to make! I baked them in a *mini* muffin pan, and ended up with 24. Will definitely make these again. I used the sweetened baker's coconut--which I didn't b...

Loved these! My kids and I enjoyed making them this morning too. We used sweetened coconut milk instead, substituted apple sauce for the oil and nixed the orange zest. They were very easy. W...

I loved these muffins!!! However, I did change the recipe so that I loved them even more the next time. Less orange zest or omit altogether and added a bit more coconut extract...DELISH!
