Banana and Coconut Muffins – gluten free

The best thing about muffins is that you don’t overbeat them, so they just need to be mixed and you are done.  This is also a good way to use those bananas that are just too ripe for anyone to want to eat.  The riper the banana, the stronger the flavour, that is why these don’t have a lot of sugar in them.  Makes 12.
