Kashata. Coconut Candy.

Kashata is a tasty treat that I loved while growing up. Originating from Kenya’s coastal area, this sweet has made its way inland and is a beloved treat to many.

Kashata is either made with coconut or peanut. This here is kashata ya nazi. Nazi is Swahili for coconut and njugu is Swahili for peanut.

I prefer the coconut version to the peanut one.

Dessicated coconut, sugar, cardamom and food color are all you need, plus a bit of patience.

You can use any food color you prefer.

They are so good, don’t blame me if you cannot get enough of them!

One Bowl Banana Muffins.

These muffins are so sweet and fluffy. Perfect for tea time, snack time and the kid’s lunchboxes.

They do not take too much time to make, use what you have on hand and only one bowl from beginning to end. What’s not to to love about them.

Below is the recipe card.

Makes 12 muffins.

They rise so beautifully!

Try them and enjoy!
