Banana Rum Coconut Muffins

We’ve had a lot of overripe bananas lately, so Steven Michael came up with some new ways to use them. Of course, we made his amazing Banana Bread first!

Next up, were these Banana Rum Coconut Muffins. I am NOT a fan of coconut, but somehow, these weren’t offensive to me. They have that delicious banana bread-esq taste with a little tropical flair that I was not mad at. When I like something random with coconut in it, Steven Michael is always quick to remind me of the time I inhaled a coconut cream pie. I have no regrets – that $#!+ was tasty!
