These muffins are wonderful. The mixture of the banana and coconut is delicious!

These have a nice flavour and texture and lovely presentation with their crumbly, golden brown tops. The only change I made was to use sultanas in place of raisins, which I did not have. To me, the topping makes them, and anyone leaving it off might be disappointed as the muffin itself isn't very sweet. They taste especially good buttered. Cooking time was right for me.

Very delicious and would have been even better if I didn't leave them in the oven for too long! I doubled the batch and made 6 jumbo and 12 regular sized muffins. I actually ran out of milk so I used coconut milk. They turned out great! Thanks RecipeNut! :)

We had a recent vacation in Jamaica and they use fresh grated coconut in different dishes so I tried that here. I did not use the raisins and replaced margarine in the muffin for canola oil. They turned out amazingly well. I used three smaller bananas and chopped them; I loved how the muffins are not overly heavy like mashed banana muffins can be. Our margarine (milk and soy free due to allergies) is very fluffy and I thought the topping was too wet and gooey so I added ~1 Tbs. whole wheat flour and 1 tsp. golden flax seeds. Nice crunch!

These muffins are amazing. I added an extra banana, forewent the raisins, used vegetable oil instead of melted butter (but still used butter in the topping), and added nutmeg to the topping. I had to add 3 minutes of baking time, but this might just be an oven quirk.

Super ! Lovely flovour, light and fluffy. Used white chocolate morsels instead of the raisins and added some hazlenuts. Will double the topping the next time round. Thanks for posting.

Yummy muffins! We doubled the recipe, left out the raisins, and added in some chopped pineapple. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

I made these muffins last night and they are soooo delicious. I did substitute some of the white flour for whole wheat to bump up the fibre content. I also added the bananas to the wet ingredients as I found them easier to mix that way. They turned out great. I will definately make them again-the topping is a nice touch. Thanks for posting.
