GF Banana coconut crumble muffins

These "muffins" turned out really good. They are "muffins" because they are almost cupcakes. What is the difference anyway? These are made with butter and sugar, but I feel like the bananas and coconut add a little fiber and nutrition-so that's why they are "muffins". Once again, I'm amazed at how awesome Jules GF flour is. I was expecting flat-tops and I got puffy little mounded muffins! So cute! Jules has yet to disappoint.

By leaving some of the banana diced instead of mashed, you get little chunks of yummy banana in every bite.
