Mini Coconut Muffin

Coconut is very fragrance when bake and I like the crunchy feeling it gives from this muffin plus this one is very easy to make. I got this recipe from my aunt who loves to bake and she gives me this recipe, I love it from the first time that I taste it, she told me that this is her favorite too. I like baking them in a mini muffin tin, because I will get more coconut crunchy top. The muffin is not too sweet and filled with a lovely coconut fragrance (we use both desiccated coconut and coconut milk) it’s good to have as the morning treats or with a good tea in the afternoon.
