These were good, but I they would be even better with chocolate… what wouldn’t!

I didn’t have chocolate chips in the house, but if I did they would have definitely made their way into these muffins! Adding Sprouted Coconut flakes made this coconut banana muffin recipe my favourite! With or without chocolate, these muffins hit the spot for a late afternoon snack.  Give them a go this weekend 🙂
