Fruit Filled Oatmeal Coconut Muffins

I love anything coconut and we needed some new muffins for the week so these won!

Fruit Filled Oatmeal Coconut Muffins-adapted from Recipe Shoebox
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup flour(1/2 ww, 1/2 ap)
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 baking soda
1/3 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup shredded coconut
1 egg
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
Jelly of your choice, I used raspberry and strawberry Polaner all fruit

Mix together oats and buttermilk, allow to soak for at least 30 mins.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt and set aside. Add brown sugar, egg, oil, coconut, and applesauce to oatmeal mixture and stir well. Add in dry ingredients and mix until just combined.

Grease 12 muffin tins(I actually ended up with 14 muffins). Place batter about 1/4-1/2 way up muffin tin. Drop about 1 tsp of jelly on top of batter and cover with more batter. Bake for 15-18 mins.

**These are delicious and moist! I love the contrast of the sweet fruit and the texture of the coconut! Yum!
