Cocoa Macaroon Muffins

I have been craving the chocolate/coconut combo lately...not sure why!  I keep seeing all these recipes with coconut in them and even one for an upside down German Chocolate Cake, but I have no cake mix...or German chocolate to make one! I had coconut almond muffins on the menu this week and of course I can now not find the recipe, so I checked Taste of Home and found this one instead!

Cocoa Macaroon Muffins-adapted from Taste of Home
2 cups flour(I used half whole wheat, half ap)
3 heaping tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 egg
1/3 cup applesauce
1/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 cup shredded coconut(+more for top)

Mix together cocoa, baking powder, flour, and salt. Add in milk, egg, and applesauce, stir until just combined. Combine coconut and sw. milk and set aside. Place 2 tbsp batter in the bottom of greased cupcake pan(or lined). Scoop 1 tbsp of coconut mix and place on top of batter. Cover with remaining batter. Sprinkle with additional coconut. Place in 400 degree oven for 15-22 mins.(the original recipe says 20-22, but mine were done at 15)

**These were pretty tasty...not quite as good as a nice moist cupcake or German Chocolate cake might be, but it was still pretty good! It was like eating a chocolate muffin with a macaroon inside of it...these were approved by a 1 yr old!
