Banana Carrot Coconut Breakfast Muffins

Banana Carrot Coconut Breakfast Muffins are delicious, easy, and vegan! Looking for a healthy and easy way to start your day? Take a quick muffin to go!  Now, at the end of mixing together all of these ingredients, I opted to make them vegetarian instead because I discovered some left over chocolate chips from Easter.  However, typically, I would keep them vegan just to make them extra healthy!  Of course, something this delicious can easily be scarfed down as a dessert.  They are specifically stated as breakfast muffins because they are not light and fluffy, but rather dense and filling like a good breakfast should be.  

I have no idea what’s happened to me with age, well, that’s not entirely true at all.  A big.fat.sigh. to that on many accounts, however, regarding breakfast, what used to be my most favorite meal of the day, I no longer have an appetite in the early hours of the day and I struggle to get down anything too large.  Being that I fully understand and support the importance of a dope bfast I force myself to eat something.  These Banana Carrot Coconut Breakfast Muffins are perfect for me right now because they’re quick to eat, healthy, dense enough, but doesn’t leave me feeling like I’ve just eaten a mountain of food.  Not to mention, getting both the wee dude and myself ready in the morn leaves little time to chow down on gigantic homemade delicatessens.  I make a tray of these bad boys and I’m good for the week!  If not, freeze them and enjoy their deliciousness at a later date.  On that note, happy easy, healthy, vegan, and delicious morning to you! Love, Foodgalleygab.

    Hi, these muffins look amazing. I have a question. What kind of shredded coconut do you use?
