Now these are the kind of muffins that scream summer! So why not get in the mood with a little tropical flavor. My mom is visiting today from MI, and they just got snow this week! I know it's April! Why do you think we always live in warmer climates now! Anyways I thought this would be a nice welcome to the warm weather. This is a cooking light recipe, so yes it's even somewhat healthy for you.
- Preheat oven to 400.
- To prepare muffins, lightly spoon flour into measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 4 ingredients in a large bowl. Make a well in center of flour mixture. Combine banana and next 5 ingredients in a medium bowl; add to flour mixture, stirring just until moist. Stir in pineapple, 1/3 cup coconut, and 3 T. macadamia nuts. Spoon batter into muffin cups.
- To prepare topping, combine 2 T. coconut and remaining ingredients in a small bowl.
- Sprinkle about 1 tsp. topping over each muffin. Bake at 400 for 18-20 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in center. Remove muffins from pan immediately, place on a wire rack to cool.
