    Streusel was good but to be honest it’s not bad but I’m looking for something a bit different, thank you for sharing this recipe!

    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 recipe is terrible. It taste like dough. I would not make this recipe again.

    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!

    Wow! Super good and full of coconut flavor with the added bonus of streusel!
