Coconut Papaya Muffins

I decided on these when I was doing some freezer clean-out. I often keep a number of different fruits in there that I haven’t got to. And do not want to waste. My mother was very key in my learning to save as many foods from waste as possible.

So besides the usual bananas that find their way in there, I will also keep gads of applesauce, and others, such as blueberries and strawberries. I also will puree excess watermelon since those are very large. If made into ice cubes, the melon makes smashing smoothies or margaritas.
