  8. If desired, sprinkle chopped nuts or shredded coconut on top of each muffin.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  10. Allow the muffins to cool in the muffin tin for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
