Some details on this chocolate coconut muffins recipe

Flavor: if you love coconut and chocolate i can assure you you will like the taste of these muffins! One does not gain the upper hand over the other, it remains fairly balanced. I slightly sweetened the recipe because the addition of coconut allows it.

Texture : Ultra soft! Partly thanks to the butter and coconut oil mixture, but also thanks to the grated coconut. Adding yogurt also helps to make the muffins extra moist.

Difficulty level : It's easy, you will only need two containers. You can use an electric mixer or just a classic whisk like me.

Ingredients to plan to make these coconut muffins

For these chocolate chip coconut muffins, we need classic ingredients : flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, eggs, brown sugar, unsalted butter.

For this particular recipe I added somecoconut oil (because I love the delicate scent it brings to preparations), grated coconut and chocolate chips. I also added some natural yogurt with coconut: it's a plant-based yogurt that you can find in all supermarkets, but if you don't have one, know that you can substitute with Greek yogurt.

How to make coconut and chocolate chip muffins

First, we start by melting the coconut oil and butter. Then add the brown sugar then the eggs and vanilla.

Apart, we mix together dry ingredients then they are added to the previous mixture, alternating with the yogurt. Warning: for the muffins, you must not mix the dough too much, just enough, this allows to obtain a nice texture, and a good rising in the oven.

We finish the preparation by adding the shredded coconut and chocolate chips. Finally, we fill the boxes with the dough and put in the oven!

How to preserve them well?

These chocolate coconut muffins are easily stored at room temperature. However, you have to think about placing them in a airtight container so that they do not dry out. They can be kept this way for 4-5 days.
