Apple Pecan Muffins with Coconut

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


These muffins are full of flavor! Apples, coconut, and chopped pecans go into the lightly spiced batter in this recipe


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 cups finely chopped apples
  • 1 cups chopped pecans
  • 1 cup flaked coconut


Heat oven to 350° F.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt and nutmeg.

In a separate bowl, beat eggs, sugar and oil. Stir in chopped apples, pecans and coconut.

Stir apple and egg mixture into dry ingredients just until moistened.

Fill greased and floured muffin cups about three-fourths full. Bake for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.

Cool in pan 10 minutes then remove to a rack.

Makes about 18 muffins.

AMAZING, Member babykanuk

I have been searching for a recipe to use up some leftover coconut and pecans that i had from making christmas cookies when I stumbled upon this recipe. I have to say these are by far the BEST muffins I have ever made and maybe have ever eaten. They are sweet and delicious and moist and just so good. The only thing I might change next time is also add some cinnamon and maybe ground ginger just for some added flavor. But other than that they are amazing!!!!!!!!
