Coconut Key Lime yogurt muffins

Eileen Hineline


I love muffins and love making them when I can, I decided to make these after looking at a few recipes and checking what I had on hand. I came up with this muffin idea when I seen I had flavored yogurts and coconut and other ingredients and decided to try making them. They are super moist and so delicious. The coconut and key lime flavors come together so well in this recipe.
My sons enjoyed them with milk, I enjoyed them with coffee.
Great snack, dessert, simple breakfast.

How to Make Coconut Key Lime yogurt muffins


  1. preheat oven to 350°F. Line 12 muffin cups with paper holders. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until combined; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together butter and sugar with an electric beater until combined. Beat in yogurt, eggs, zest, and juice. Add dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon until evenly distributed.
  3. Fill muffin tins 2/3 full with batter. Top each tin with coconut.
  4. Bake until a tester inserted into the center of a muffin comes about clean, about 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
  5. ***Tip***
    I used the flavored yogurts in place of the plain greek yogurt to equal the amount called for, you can do this if you do not have plain yogurt on hand.
    Prep time is 15 minutes-Bake time is 20 minutes and cooling time-15 minutes
