Coconut Banana Muffins

Coconut Banana Muffins by The Sweet Chick
In between all the rain showers, we have had some pretty nice days.  This past Sunday was one of them.  My husband and I actually took the kids to our community pool.  They have been begging to go since it opened April 1.  Only the neighborhood kids ventured out into the not so warm water.  The adults were all lounging around in the hot sun.  I am looking forward to some summer weather.  For now, I will have to do with some summer inspired treats.  These Coconut Banana Muffins with Tequila Lime Glaze fit the bill perfectly.

As you can see, these have the same makings as most of my muffins.  I just swapped out a few of the flavors.

I know not everyone likes the texture of shredded coconut, so I pulsed it a few times in the food processor to get smaller pieces.  I just loved how well these muffins rise.  They are always light and fluffy.

When I was taste testing the glaze, it was pretty strong.  However, it ends up soaking into the muffins and the tequila taste mostly goes away.  I actually ended up double glazing mine because I forgot to have the toasted coconut ready before the first layer of glaze set. The toasted coconut flakes added more flavor and a bit of crunch.

These Coconut Banana Muffins came out moist and full of coconut flavor, without being dense or overly sweet.  The Tequila Lime Glaze added a little tang to balance the sweetness of the coconut.  If you just want to add a lime glaze, you could just replace the tequila with water.

Just looking at these muffins has got me thinking of summer; sitting by the pool with a margarita in hand. Oh yeah, baby!  I am ready.  Are you?  Perhaps you should make some muffins to get you going.

    • 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
    • 2 eggs, room temperature
    • 1 teaspoon imitation coconut extract
    • 2 medium bananas, mashed
    • 1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1 cup sweetened coconut flakes
    For the glaze
    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
    • 1 tablespoon tequila
    • 1 teaspoon water
    Optional toppings
    • sprinkles
    • toasted coconut flakes
    For the muffins
    Preheat oven to 375ºF.
    Place solid coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for about 20 seconds until melted.
    In a stand mixer bowl add sugar, oil, eggs, and coconut extract. Mix on low speed until completely blended.
    Then add mashed bananas and mix until smooth.
    Next add in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix until well blended.
    Lastly, add the shredded coconut to the mixer bowl and mix on low until completely incorporated.
    Spoon batter into greased/lined muffin tins until about 3/4 full.
    Bake at 375ºF for 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
    Remove from oven and place on cooling rack. Cool completely before adding glaze.
    For the glaze
    In a small bowl, whisk together the powdered sugar, lime juice, tequila, and water until smooth.
    Brush the glaze over the tops of the muffins.
    Let the glaze set.
    For the optional toppings
    If you add sprinkles or toasted coconut flakes to the tops of the muffins, do so before the glaze sets.
    To make toasted coconut flakes, lay out 1/2 - 1 cup of sweetened coconut flakes on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake at 325°F for about 10 minutes or until golden brown, stirring them around half way through. Let the toasted coconut flakes cool before adding to the muffins. You can keep any extra flakes in an air tight container and use it over ice cream, waffles, etc.
    If you do not want to add tequila to the glaze, simply replace the quantity with water.
    If you want to add more glaze, let one layer of glaze set before brushing on another.
