Chocolate Coconut Banana Bread Muffins are a delightful breakfast or dessert treat! 


Sounds a little strange to say out loud. 

I’m not quite sure how I feel about turning another year older. Honestly, I feel like I’m really thirty-two. Can I turn thirty-two tomorrow? That would be swell. 

Don’t get me wrong with age comes wisdom. However, this year I definitely feel the forty mark creeping closer. Mr. B turns forty this year and I’m having a minor panic attack for him. He actually seems super chill about entering into another decade. God love him. 

Anyway, rather than dread turning another year older, I must say it’s wonderful to be in Utah with Mr.B and Charlie. We are here this week to ski, eat delicious food, and soak in mountain life. Not a bad way to spend the ol’ birthday! 

But before we head out to the slopes, let’s chat real quick about these Chocolate Coconut Banana Bread Muffins! This recipe is twist on my classic banana bread. By the way if you haven’t made my banana bread it’s literally so freaking good! With this twist, I added in some coconut and dark chocolate chips. Mmmmmm….two of my favorite combinations. 

These Chocolate Coconut Banana Bread Muffins would be excellent as a quick breakfast option on the fly or even sassy enough for dessert. Either way make a big a$$ batch because these bad boys will fly off the shelves!
