I’ve never thought of a muffin as “dreamy” but I might start with these because that’s my best description of these sweet impossible to resist muffins.
My husband made the comment that I put chocolate chips in everything while he sampled another new zucchini muffin recipe. So I decided to make a special muffin just for him with his favorite two ingredients; coconut and nuts.
