Recipe: Banana Coconut Muffin

So, I've forgotten I bought bananas and when I remembered I had them, they were already overripe. I've thrown overly ripe bananas before and I'm kicking myself why I haven't tried this recipe before. This recipe doesn't use egg or butter instead I opted for coconut oil which I used in my Coconut Oil Choco Raisin Cookies last week. I also have some coconut shavings I bought about a month ago, because they just look so delicious and haven't gotten to cooking with them until this week with the Coconut French Toast I made for breakfast.

I love the deep flavor and color the muscovado sugar brought to this recipe. It will look darker than the usual banana muffin because of the sugar and chocolate, but will taste better. You can lessen sugar because banana is already sweet. The ones I made came out so moist!
