Coconut Banana Muffins

I'm finally getting around to posting these little treats!  It was so hot and felt just like summer when I made them so I needed a yummy summery treat.  These were great.  I sent half of them to work with G and he came back with rave reviews! This recipe is from DIY Du Jour.

1 1/4 cups of mashed banana (about 3 bananas)
1/2 cup shredded coconut (and more for the top)
1 1/8 cups of sugar
2 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 eggs
4 tbsp unsalted butter (melted and cooled)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Heat oven to 425. Line the muffin tin with liners.  Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt in a large bowl and set aside. In a separate large bowl mix together, sugar, eggs, butter, vegetable oil, buttermilk and vanilla extract.  Combine the egg mixture, coconut, banana and flour mixture.  Just mix until combined.  Evenly distribute the batter into the muffins liners.  Tops with shredded coconut then sprinkle with a bit of sugar.  Bake for 17 to 19 minute.  Let cool for 3 to 5 minute then transfer to a wire rack.
