Banana Muffins

I love muffins :)  In almost every variety out there... some with fruit, others savory with cheese the possibilities are endless... these little gems are both easy and delicious.... You can skip the coconut and nuts if you don't like them, or just use nuts or coconut... Sometimes I even add a sprinkle of dry oats on top too...  enjoy

Banana muffins

3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
2 eggs
2 cups baking mix
2 bananas, mashed well
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp almond extract
2/3  cup coconut
nuts, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line 12 muffin tin with paper liners.  In large bowl whisk together sugar, oil, eggs and vanilla yogurt.  Add bananas mixing well.  Add baking mix, cinnamon and almond extract mixing until just combined.  Fill muffin tins 3/4 of the way full.  Sprinkle coconut & nuts on top of batter and bake for 20-25 minutes (start checking at 20 minutes) inserting a toothpick into top and making sure it comes out clean.  Remove from oven and enjoy :)
