Solar Baked Banana Coconut Muffins for Breakfast

I finally got to sleep in this morning. When I woke up I was in the mood for something special for breakfast. Before getting out of bed I used the epicurious app on my iPod touch to look for a recipe. I wanted to make some kind of baked french toast but quickly realized I didn't have the right ingredients on hand. I did have two over ripe bananas. It came down to a toss up between these Banana Coconut Muffins and Banana-Chocolate Chip Muffins. Much as I love chocolate I decided to go with the healthier option. I also only used 1/4 cup butter and 1/4 cup canned pumpkin instead of the 1/2 butter the recipe called for. Once again I tried to pay attention to the baking time. They were ready in under an hour, I'd say about 45 minutes.


  1. Those look sooooo good. I was going to fix something for breakfast, too, but the sun skittered behind some heavy black clouds and stayed there for the rest of the day. But, Banana Coconut sounds great. Did you have a special jam or spread? Thanks for sharing.

  2. I had the first few bites with raspberry jam (purchased) but soon realized that they were so good they didn't need it.
