I used pineapple yogurt instead of the sourcream
yummy muffin..love the coconut and pineapple. Reminds me of the beach.
These muffins have become my husband's favorite!!! I serve these to guests who come to visit us in Naples, Fl and they are always a hit. They are not too sweet, perfect from breakfast or a snack.
