Coconut Apple Cinnamon Pecan Muffins - Wheat Flour

Oh my gosh.....these are REALLY REALLY good.  These are nice and moist and have a GREAT flavor.  You can definitely taste the cinnamon, coconut  and apple pieces and there is a crunch from the pecans.   

Comments from my co-workers:  "These are SOOOOO good... These are DELICIOUS.....I could eat these all day...These are VERY VERY good...YUM...I LOVE these...These are AWESOME...They are SOOO moist !!!! "

This recipe was adapted from Southern Food Apple Pecan Muffins.

1 and 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (I used Bob's Red Mill Whole Wheat Flour )
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 cup Sucanat   (or brown sugar)
1 cup pecans, chopped
1 cup  Unsweetened Shredded Coconut  (I use Bob's Red Mill)
2 Tbsp molasses
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 and 1/2 cups chopped peeled apples
2 medium to large very ripe bananas, mashed

1 Tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

Mix molasses, applesauce, milk, vanilla, apples and mashed bananas in one bowl. 

Mix the dry ingredients in another bowl.    

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened.  

Pour into muffin pan, sprinkle with topping mixture and bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.  

I like using the silicone bakeware for my muffins.  The muffins  come out so easily and I don't need to grease the pan.  My favorites are:   Casabella Silicone Standard Muffin PanCasabella Silicone Large Muffin Pan, Casabella Jumbo Muffin Cups.

The OXO Large Scoop  is GREAT for scooping out batter into the muffin pan.  It is MUCH neater than when I used a spoon to scoop the batter into the pan - I no longer get batter all over the muffin pan !!!
