Coconut lime muffins

These are my new favourites! I’ve only made these coconut lime muffins once so far, but I’m sure I will be making them many more times again!

A pretty straightforward classic muffin recipe, with a tropical twist. Close your eyes and think lime cocktails, beaches with coconut trees, and enjoy your muffin πŸ™‚
