"What a great recipe! Simple to make, with impressive results. I substituted coconut oil for the oil, coconut oil and salt for the butter, but otherwise followed the recipe. In my pans it made 11 muffins, all delicious."

"This was a good sounding recipe, but there was ultimately no coconut flavor. Even when I added double coconut and extract. I love the idea, but I'll keep looking. Thanks for sharing!"
