 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      cups          all-purpose flour
    1      teaspoon      salt
    1      teaspoon      baking powder
    1      teaspoon      baking soda
      3/4  cup           shredded coconut -- (3/4 to 1)
      3/4  cup           chopped pecans -- (3/4 to 1)
    6      tablespoons   softened butter (3/4 stick)
    6      tablespoons   creamy peanut butter
    1      cup           brown sugar -- firmly packed
    2                    eggs
    3                    ripe bananas -- mashed
    1      tablespoon    Amaretto liqueur or vanilla
 
 Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray regular-size muffin pans with nonstick
 cooking spray.   In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, salt, baking
 powder, baking soda, coconut and pecans. Set aside.
 
 Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and peanut butter until light and
 fluffy. Add the brown sugar and continue beating until well-combined. Add
 the eggs, one at a time, scraping the sides of the bowl after each addition.
 Stir in the bananas and Amaretto.   Gently stir the flour mixture into the
 peanut butter mixture just until blended.
 
 Fill the prepared muffin pans two-thirds full. Bake for 20 minutes or until
 a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. Remove from
 oven. Let muffins cool in pan about 5 minutes before removing to wire rack.
 
 Makes about 2 dozen muffins
