Red Currant Coconut Muffins
Updated: May 4
After nursing my cold with natural remedies and catching up with sleep over a week, I was finally feeling better. I think I must have overextended myself, going out on play dates with my son every day that eventually my body just crashed. Even though I don't like staying at home all day, sometimes it is good to listen to your body and slow down.
Since I was stuck at home most of the week, I had some time to bake! I had some over ripe bananas sitting on my kitchen counter and was mulling over what to do with them because my freezer was already full of frozen bananas. I decided to bake a banana walnut bread, I made the recipe before but I did not had walnuts then. This time I had all the ingredients I needed and boy was I glad I made it! The bread was so yummy, the whole family loved it.

As I was on a baking craze, I also decided to try a new muffin recipe. I bought some redcurrants at the supermarket and I had no idea what to do with them. They tasted very tarty and sour. When I Googled what I could make with redcurrants, I mostly saw redcurrant tarts recipes which required a cake mixer which I do not have. Luckily I chanced upon a Scandinavian redcurrant muffin recipe on YouTube. After watching the video, it sparked on idea in my mind!
I used a coconut muffin recipe that I had made before but I replaced some of the ingredients based on what I had in the pantry. The result was surprisingly good! Now I want to share this simple and yummy recipe with you.
Keep baking for you and your family's health! :)
