This is another recipe I found on Pinterest and have made several times already. Never a flop, just light and fluffy and oh, soooo coconutty !

I have only made two tiny changes to the original recipe for these Coconut Friands.

Before we get on to the recipe … remember our new puppy ?? (who was still nameless in the post)

No more nameless – Meet REX ! Very cute, lovable and already taking over the household and everybody’s hearts!

These Coconut Friands are a coconut lover’s dream come true ! Of which I am most certainly an addict. I just love anything coconut.

Whether it is a sweet treat or used in a savory dish, I would normally over indulge in coconutty treats or dishes. Serve the Friands with a cup of tea when you have a friend over at tea time.

OR, serve as part of a sweet party platter ! They look so good on any display, with or without other sweet treats and usually the first to go as well.
