  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin liners.
  2. Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.
  3. Stir bananas, sugar, butter, egg, rum-flavored extract, and vanilla extract together in a bowl. Fold flour mixture into banana mixture 1 cup at a time. Add pineapple chunks and 1/2 cup coconut; fold gently into batter. Pour batter into prepared muffin cups and top each with about 1 teaspoon shredded coconut.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan before removing to a wire rack.

This is a very moist and delicious pina colada muffin. I made these into mini-muffins and baked for 12 minutes. I used pineapple chunks (well-drained) and overly ripe bananas. Even though the recipe did not call for them, I added 1/2 c. of finely chopped walnuts. Since we are lovers of coconut, I sprinkled some toasted coconut over the top of the muffins when I removed them from the oven. This would make an excellent muffin for a brunch or shower. This was the AR Buzz Recipe Group selection for the week of 4/5/14. Thank you, EatCookLove90 for sharing your recipe - it is a keeper for me!

These were very good. They turned out very moist and not overly sweet. I used over ripe bananas. These looked so nice; I liked the way the coconut toasted a bit on top. I used pineapple tidbits instead of chunks, and I think crushed pineapple would work nicely also, just drain really well. I didn't have rum extract, so I used real rum, but I couldn't taste it in the finished prouduct. I need to buy some rum extract and try these again sometime. I got this from Recipe Group but made it a couple weeks late.

Made this for Recipe Group...Delicious! I cut the pineapple chunks so the kids could eat them easily and cut the rum extract in 1/2, which was perfect for us. Mine only needed 20 minutes to bake, so keep an eye on them. Oh, and I got 16 muffins out of the recipe. Moist and flavorful, these are a definite keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)

Recipe Group Selection: 05, April 2014 ~ Delicious and simple muffin. I baked in my mini muffin pans and got 36 from a single batch. Like Shearones, they were done in 12 minutes. Because my guys aren't crazy about coconut, I put the 3/4 cup in the batter, but only added it to the tops of 12 before baking. Since I was making smaller muffins I used tidbits rather than chunks. I drained the pineapple really well and used the pineapple juice to make a batch of gelatin. My DH must have really liked them, coconut included and all, because 2 minutes out of the oven and he was eating his first one. Five minutes later and he had eaten 3! Thanks, EatCookLove90 for sharing your muffin recipe.
