"These muffins were okay. A bit floury and a little dry, even without overstirring. I've made dozens of different recipes for muffins and this batter was very thick and not normal muffin consistency. The combination of cranberry and lemon is good, but overpowers the coconut. Might benefit from adding more liquid, cooking a bit longer on a lower temp and toasted coconut on top."
