Coconut Oatmeal Muffins

Coconut Oatmeal Muffins

Surprise, Surprise! Another oatmeal recipe. I clearly have a problem. Now these muffins are another heavier, heartier muffin recipe that is definitely more than eating cake. They have this beautiful chewy texture from the coconut and somehow are still a moist muffin. With a little […]
