Fall is my favorite time for baking and I feel like I have a recipe To Do list that’s a mile long. Seriously, I want to make way too much food right now haha! Muffins are a favorite though because it’s a great grab and go breakfast. I thought these BANANA AND COCONUT MUFFINS would be perfect. and they’re healthy too! Well, as healthy as muffins can get. I topped half the muffins with shredded coconut for Matthew since it’s his fave, and I put granola on top of the other half for me. It worked out and it ensured there wasn’t any muffin stealing going on! Sometimes we get quite protective over our sweets!
