Leftover Banana Makeover

Two quickly ripening leftover bananas led me to look for something new to make. I typically make Banana Bran muffins but was in the mood for a change. I found this recipe on Epicurious... Moist and very easy to make!

Banana coconut muffins

Active time: 10 min Start to finish: 45 min
Makes 8-10.
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 very ripe bananas, mashed (3/4 cup)
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted
2/3 cup sugar
1 large egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut
Chopped walnuts (optional)

Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 375°F. Line muffin cups with liners.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. Whisk together bananas, butter, sugar, egg, vanilla, and 1/2 cup coconut in a large bowl until combined well, then fold in flour mixture until flour is just moistened. Stir in walnuts.
Divide batter among lined muffin cups and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup coconut. Bake until muffins are puffed and golden, about 25 minutes. Transfer muffins to a rack and cool slightly.
