Coconut banana muffins

Today I had a craving for muffins. I had some brown bananas sitting on the counter, but the thought of plain old banana muffins wasn't cutting it for me today. So online I went, and i came across a recipe at smittenkitchen.com. Her recipe sounded fantastic, so I modified it just a bit to accommodate the ingredients I had on hand, and my taste preference. They turned out amazing!

Here is the recipe I followed:
