I greatly modified and they turned out great- coconutty, moist, and just sweet enough. I accomplished this by doubling the ingredients (yielded about 16 muffins), and substituting as follows: added 1/2 tsp baking powder, boiling rice milk for boiling water, 1/2 cup honey. My young girls love them too! Will make my modified version again!

I was very disappointed in this recipe. They weren't sweet at all, and made 10 VERY small muffins.

This recipe was REALLY BAD! The yield was 6, not 12, muffins. They did not brown at all. I did not use honey because I used sweetened coconut (as directed in recipe),and there was virtually no flavor. After removing them from the oven, they collapsed. The result- flavorless yellow clumps. On the plus side, they smelled great!

This was the only coconut muffin on your site, so I tried it. It has no leavening agent, so came out like lead. Therefore, I can only think that it was a forgotten ingredient? I'd like the person to put it in, if it was forgotten - is there any way you can let them know?

Taste is very particular but delicious. My friends say that it's the kind of taste you love or you hate, nothing in between. After reading previous reviews, I added 1 teaspoon of baking powder. Next time I'll bake'em I will double quantities, because thy're rather small.

My family didn't like these at all. They have a very "eggy" flavor.

Terrible! Very bland! Even after adding baking powder and doubling the recipe, it only made 12 SMALL muffins.

2 eggs ? 3/4 cup of flour ? no baking soda ? SORRY, this recipe is all wrong.
