These Coconut Muffins smell and taste of delicious coconut, are delicate and tender, and are super easy to make. Coconut milk is added to the batter and sweetened shredded coconut is sprinkled on top of the perfect amount of coconut flavor.
These Coconut Muffins can be made with just one bowl and come together really quickly. They're the perfect recipe for a beginner or if you're just looking for something simple to make without creating a ton of dishes in the process.
Let's bake! Get started by preheating your oven to 375º F. Prepare a muffin pan with muffin liners.
In a large bowl, whisk the melted butter, eggs, coconut milk, and coconut. Add in the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar and continue to mix on low just until combined.
Scoop the batter into 12 muffins liners or 6 jumbo liners, so that each liner is about ¾ full. Sprinkle the top of each muffin with sugar and more coconut.
Bake muffins for 15-20 minutes or until they are slightly golden and the coconut topping has started to toast. Let muffins cool slightly on a cooling rack. Enjoy!
These muffins have just the right amount of coconut in them without it being overpowering.
If you want them to have a little more of a crunch, you can substitute the sweetened flaked coconut for unsweetened flaked coconut. Either way, you'll have a delicious treat to enjoy!
