Banana, Coconut, and Pineapple Muffins
This recipe was made entirely by my 7 year old daughter. I have to say it was really wonderful to see how confident she is in the kitchen. After setting up the ingredients she asked if she could arrange them and take some pictures…it was so surreal and cool watching my daughter do her version of food blogging. She took several photos before letting me do mine. Once the pictures were taken care of, she proceeded to make the muffins by herself. I just sat back, took some pictures of her, and beamed with pride. The muffins turned out perfect! Sweet, moist, and so tasty – a huge hit with the whole family. A job well done by my talented daughter.
