White Chocolate, Banana, and muffins

My husband works a lot of shift work and the mens’ ladies provide the fixings from time to time. I like to give a steady supply of sugar and fruit to the guys, it is my perfect excuse to bake ALL the time. These particular muffins went over like all get out, they are easy peasy too.


1/2 cup of unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup of sugar
1 egg, whisked
1 cup of mashed bananas
1 teaspoon of baking soda
2 cups of flour
pinch of salt
1/4 teaspoon of ground cinnamon
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 cup of shredded coconut, or more if you like (this is the topping)
½ cup of white chocolate chips, or more if you desire


Preheat the oven to 350. Cream together the butter and sugar, add in the egg and continue to beat until combined. In another bowl, mix the mashed bananas and baking soda. Let this mixture sit for a couple of minutes.

Mix the banana mixture into the butter mixture. Next mix together the flour, salt, cinnamon & pumpkin pie spice and sift into the butter and banana mixture. When that is combined fold in the white chocolate chips; then top with a bit of the shredded coconut.

Pour the batter evenly into a cupcake pan with liners, or just plain old liners sitting on a baking so

Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes; just keep an eye on them.
