I made these this morning for the wife and I. I couldn't see any reason not to add chopped almonds, so I did. It was a good call because they were delicious!

These muffins were so enjoyed as part of my Brunch buffet. Chocolatey and moist with lots of coconut flavor and I added almonds on top for crunch. Yummy!

These muffins are delish! They came together easily, but I found it to be a wee bit fussy in getting the correct balance of batter/filling without the filling coming out in the baking. Other than that, loved that they are not too sweet at all. And who does not like chocolate and coconut together. Yum!

Very good, but be careful not to overfill the muffin tins. A welcome treat! Thanks for sharing!
