I made these as 12 muffins. Everyone loved them, even a friend who claims not to like carrots or coconut. Very moist and not too sweet. Tomorrow I'll be making a double batch so they last a little longer.
The muffin is very moist and quite dense-- to the point of being heavy. Texture is nice and color and aroma are pleasant. It makes a better mini loaf than muffin.
These muffins are really yummy---make great mini-size muffins, too. Our batches have disappeared quickly! Even got a certain picky child to try these and she said they taste like pumpkin bread.We've also had fun with the recipe name!
less flavorful than expected; pineapple would have been a good addition
These are wonderful warm a bit in the micro. I gave the recipe to a friend and she made the mini loaves spread with cream cheese and she loved them Nice and moist
These are moist, sweet and I, yes, will definitely make them again. I enjoy them at breakfast with a bowl of fruit.....warm a tad in your micro first and enjoy!

Ryan’s mom, Becky, was even so kind as to come over and play with our toddler so that he could be outside, too – without getting too close to the clipping shears and other dangerous tools.
