Chunky Monkey Muffins

Super easy muffins with banana, pecans, coconut made with a cake mix! Perfect recipe for overripe bananas!


One day I was looking at these four overripe bananas today thinking that I NEEDED to make banana bread with them but I REALLY didn't feel like dragging out the flour, baking soda, etc. when I spied a box of Golden Butter cake mix.

hmmmm......

Then I spotted a bag of pecans.... and a bag of coconut.... and the wheels started turning. I threw together what I thought the cake mix would need to turn in to muffins and hoped for the best.

The results? In a word? Amazeballs. Plus easy. And chunky. Also chewy. And moist.

I haven't made banana bread in years because we love these muffins so much more! You can switch up and switch out the pecans and coconut to suite your fancy.

If I have a piece of a bag of chocolate chips (or butterscotch or peanut butter or white chocolate...), I throw them in there too!

Macadamia nuts and walnuts are perfect in this recipe too. Just use whatever you have on-hand!
