There is a restaurant on Isle of Palms right outside of Charleston, SC called Coconut Joes. They serve the BEST coconut hush puppies! I wanted to try and duplicate the recipe but could not find it any where so I came up with these and they tasted great! They are still no coconut Joes but they are the closest thing I'm going to get without having to get a job at the place and stealing the recipe. I hope you enjoy them!
