Mix all wet ingredients in a mixing bowl and set aside. Use a different bowl to mix all the dry ingredients. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix with a rubber spatula until well combined.  Place in muffin liners. Sprinkle a bit of coconut flakes on top of the muffins and bake in preheated oven on 350F/180C for 20 minutes. Let them cool completely before serving, about 30 minutes. Enjoy!
