Apple, pecans and coconut give these cinnamon-spiced muffins a hearty texture. They're tender and delicious baked in paper liners or greased muffin cups. —Carol Stine, Dayton, Ohio

"Very good. Will make these again. Did not glaze them and they were perfect with a casserole for supper. I would add the glaze if using for breakfast or brunch."

"Excellent! Very moist! I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup white. I also cut the drizzle in half and it was more than enough! I also used walnuts because that's what I had and I didn't toast them. I omitted coconut. Absolutely delicious! I already wrote the recipe down for future baking!:) Thank!"
