When baking them, I was a little worried about the coconut oil that is in them. It made the batter appear runny and I thought they would have a hard time setting up in the oven. But when they came out and finally cooled, you couldn't even taste the coconut oil. The muffins are moist, but they had no problem baking.

You can bake them in a standard muffin tin, if you'd like, but I only had a mini muffin tin on hand. Instead of the recommended 30 minute bake time, I put them in for 15 minutes and it seemed to be plenty of time.
