Tropical Muffins Recipe
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup Equal Sugar-Lite OR Splenda
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut
3 medium ripe bananas, mashed
1/3 cup unsalted butter
1 egg, beaten OR 1/4 cup egg substitute
1 tsp orange zest
1/3 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
Vegetable oil spray
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 12 muffin cups with vegetable oil spray and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, sift together flour, Splenda or Equal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir in the coconut and make a well in the center of the mixture. Combine the remaining ingredients together and put into the well of the dry mixture. Stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling each two-thirds full. Bake at 375 for 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly browned.
