We love baking, and this carrot, coconut and banana muffin is the perfect addition to the school lunch box mix. You can play around with flavours - we have added raspberries, dried apricots, or even dark choc chips. They always turn out perfectly moist and delicious and have been a hit in our whole neighbourhood.
