Use your overripe bananas for deliciously easy coconut banana muffins

The kids are out of school and everyone is on a different schedule, so I thought these easy muffins would fill them up as they went on with their day. Since they are involved in lots of social activities, sports and work schedules, grabbing a couple muffins and some juice or milk is a perfect breakfast or snack.

I added some of their favorite ingredients in them. Of course, ripe bananas. I always seem to have a bunch of those! Coconut, macadamia nuts (use any kind of nut you like, or skip it if there are allergies) and everything tastes better with chocolate! Semisweet chocolate chips. These are such a moist delicious muffin, made in my Pampered Chef Pan, which I love because it's nonstick and no need to use a baking spray!
