A lightly sweet and very satisfying muffin with a coco-nutty crunch.
Heat oven to 400 degrees; grease muffin tins. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt into a medium bowl. Stir in brown sugar, cornmeal, walnuts, oats, and coconut.
Crack eggs into a large bowl and beat lightly. Mix in buttermilk and melted butter.
Add dry mixture to the wet mixture; stir until barely blended together (do not beat or over-blend.)
Fill muffin cups 3/4 full. Bake until toothpick inserted near center of a muffin comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Cool muffins about 10 minutes then remove them from the tins to a cake rake to cool longer. Serve warm or at room temperature.
