Coconut Almond Coffee Cake Muffins

Since making my Blueberry Coffee Cake muffins, I am absolutely in love with this type of muffins. Last time I didn’t get to share with my co-workers and this time I just had to hear that “mmm” from someone other that family members. I also wanted to try a different flavor combination.
These are BY FAR the best muffins that I’ve made!!

12 tablespoons butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 extra-large eggs, at room temperature
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
8 ounces (about 1 cup) sour cream
1/3 cup milk
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup crushed almonds
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease the 12 cup muffin pan.
2. In the large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy (about 5 minutes.) 
3. Add the eggs 1 at a time, beating on low speed.  
4. Add the vanilla, sour cream, and milk. 
5. Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Beat all on low speed until just mixed.

6. Fold in the coconut flakes and almonds with a spatula and be sure the batter is completely mixed.

7. Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin pans, filling each cup to almost full. Sprinkle with some almonds on top.

8. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the muffins are lightly browned on top and a toothpick comes out clean.
