My hair stylist loves chocolate and coconut and I can’t wait to bake a batch of these for her. Silly me, I have to bake a batch for us also!
These are gorgeous! I LOVE coconut….but paired with chocolate….YUM! : )
This looks amazing! Nice job! I just love the combo of chocolate and coconut- so glad to have a new muffin recipe!
Your muffins look beautiful. I love the fact that the glaze on top is made with egg white instead of the normal powdered sugar and water.
You can’t go wrong with the combo of chocolate and coconut! These sound amazing!
I am having a little bit of a love affair with coconut right now and this desert means I don’t have to cheat on chocolate. Thanks.
I let out a little gasp when I saw this photo on today’s Top 9 at Foodbuzz. These look so yummy. My first favorite candybar was Almond Joy, so I love coconut and chocolate. I’ve moved on to more sophisticated chocolate truffles and ganaches since then, but still love the coconut and chocolate combo.

Hello. I love your website and your YouTube channel! I look at your videos every day! I have some questions about this recipe:
1. Could you please put the quantities of the ingredients in grams and millilitres?
2. Are these mini muffins or regular sized muffins? They look smaller in the picture.
3. Could I use desiccated coconut instead of flakes? If yes, how much do I need?
Thank you so much for your help!
