so DELICIOUS! These were easy to make and we loved the flavors. We used a gluten-free flour blend and they turned out perfect. Next time we might throw in some chocolate chips for fun but the recipe is great as written!

I couldn't find the shredded coconut so made them with flaked coconut. I made these using jumbo cupcake liners filling them more than 2/3's full so that they would rise a little over the top. I made 10 1/2 jumbo muffins with this recipe. Moist and delicious and yes, they do taste better the next day. Definitely a keeper!!

I made them per the recipe & they were wonderful. My husband thought they might be the best muffin he has ever had (he's eaten more than any other muffin I've ever made). Since it makes a big batch, there was plenty to share with my son's family, freeze some & still have plenty to eat.

These were really good. Everyone in the family loved them , even my husband , who is not a big fan of banana muffins. I used pecans instead of macadamia nuts. They made a nice big batch and were still good the next day. Delicious. Will definitely be making these again.

These muffins were super moist. They were a great hit with my family. They were soooo good warm and just as great cold. I didn't make any changes to the recipe. I 'm not a big fan of coconut, but I used Baker's Angel Flake Coconut Sweetened and it was great. Definitely a keeper!

made this yesterday, only difference is I made it into an 8 x 8 cake, and still had enough left over for a small loaf pan too. the cake I baked for 45 minutes. and used Walnuts instead of the macadamia nuts because that is what I had. this is a great tasting cake.

I made these last night, they are good. they were a little on the dry side for me. I normally make a banana, cherry and pecan cupcake that is really moist and a lot more flavorful. probably will not make again...
