It’s time for another round of #MuffinMonday. An challenged us to make a muffin using coconut this week. Up until a few years ago, I really didn’t like coconut. I think it was a texture thing. I loved the flavor, but the flakes rubbed me the wrong way. I don’t know what changed, but now I can’t get enough of the tropical fruit.
