Sour Cream Banana Muffins topped with Shredded Coconut

Happy Friday to you. 

Don't you just love the idea of a fresh, warm muffin and a piping hot cup of coffee in the morning?
It's so inviting. And some days it's the only way I can start my day right.  Sadly, unless I head out for breakfast to a Starbucks or a local cafe or I'm on vacation somewhere, I hardly ever get to indulge in a good muffin.

And all the really, really "good" muffins are usually high in calories.

So for a treat once in awhile, I love to make a good muffin recipe from scratch.

These were worth a bite or more.

I love this recipe.  And you will too if you make them.  Promise?

Sour Cream Banana Muffins topped with Shredded Coconut

Adapted from
*I left out the nuts. But chocolate chips would probably be awesome in these.

You'll need:

Like the purple bowl?

Well don't get too attached.  A pink bowl took its place when I completely forgot about the microwave and melted that stick. Re-do!

That's what you want. Just slightly softened when you press your finger in it.

*tip for if you forgot to soften your stick of butter prior.  Or you get impatient like me and just want to start baking.



Combine the flour and baking soda in a small bowl.

Sour cream

Vanilla extract

I can't ever pass up a good looking batter. And this batter was deeelicious!

 These muffins are moist, fluffy and very banana-y.  Yes, say it with me. Bah-nana-e. And the coconut gives a subtle flavor but it was really just there to be pretty.

Give yourself a pat on the back and six one of these muffins because I bet you deserve it.

We were patiently waiting for the DING sound.

What's your ideal breakfast?
