Koko – Kokonut Muffins - what?

On the lookout for eggless muffin recipes, I have come across over 30 combinations and variations, amazing really.  Though I haven’t understood the difference between muffins and cupcakes (except that the latter is decorated) – I have realized there’s so much more variety to muffins than just vanilla, banana, carrot, and chocolate that I had mostly known earlier.

chocolate and coconut muffins
Like how adding coconut here gave the muffin a wonderful aroma and taste along with the chocolate.  I think roasted or baked coconut flakes have become my second favorite aroma after vanilla.  Originally called Chocolate-Coconut Muffins, I’m renaming them as Koko-Kokonut (Cocoa–Coconut) muffins.  Eggless and vegan.

What you’ll need:
What you’ll do:
1 ½ cup flour
Preheat oven to 180oC (350oF).  Grease muffin cups or place liners.
1.  In a medium bowl combine dry ingredients: flour + sugar + cocoa powder + baking powder + salt + cinnamon.
2.  Add the wet ingredients: water + vinegar + vanilla extract + oil.
3.  Mix till just combined, thick batter but of dropping consistency.
4.  Fold in the coconut flakes.
5.  Spoon mixture into prepared muffin cups.  Bake 30-35 minutes.  Toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean when they’re done.

tsp cinnamon
1 cup coconut flakes
1 ½ cup water
1 Tbsp vinegar
¼ cup oil

Though these turned out good, I felt the muffins were too sweet and had quite strong cocoa flavor, so I think reducing to ¾ cup sugar and 2-2½ Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder would be a good idea.  Then again, it’s up to your preference.

I did not put the white coconut glaze and chocolate glaze as in the original recipe.
