Monkey Muffins are a delicious banana muffin recipe, loaded with coconut & chocolate chips! These make the perfect breakfast to make your day happy!
This week I thought I would share something that was first shared here by Sarah at Faith, Family & F-Stops. A few weeks back she posted her Funky Monkey Muffins & I was drooling. So much so that I featured them & then I tried my hand at making them. However- like most recipes I try- I put my own twist on it. Taking the basic concept & base ingredients I changed things up. This was mainly because the recipe said it made a dozen. Well in this house with 3 kids that EAT A LOT- I knew that 12 muffins just wasn’t going to cut it. So not only did I double the recipe but then I changed the quantities just a bit to fit my taste.
Thank you Sarah- they were FABULOUS!!!!!!!!
The kids loved them & I actually got about 30 muffins out of the batch. Worked out great- we had breakfast for a whole week. If you don’t need quite that many (even though they do freeze well) head on over to see Sarah’s post & print off the small batch version. Otherwise you can print this large batch version below.
Oh my goodness – just look at that coconut. These make me SWOON!
You really can’t go wrong with chocolate chips. I love making these for breakfast on the weekends!
