Muffins from a cookie

A few weeks ago R and I made the Banana and Coconut muffin top Cookies as she wanted cookies and I wanted muffins. Well I decided to change up the recipe somewhat and make muffins using the same basic tastes. Worked really well! The chocolate chips are entirely optional and more for tempting children to eat the muffins than anything else. Here's the recipe -

Banana and Coconut Muffins
Makes 12

1/3 C Soymilk
½ t Apple Cider Vinegar
2 Ripe Bananas – well mashed
½ t Vanilla Essence
½ t Banana (or coconut) Essence
1/3 c Coconut Milk
3 T Oil
2/3 C Sugar
¾ C Plain Flour
¾ C Whole Wheat Pastry Flour
1 T Baking Powder
¼ t Salt
½ C Coconut
¼ C Chocolate Chips (optional)

- Preheat oven to 375F and prepare your muffin tins.
- In a large bowl mix the soymilk and ACV, allow to stand 5 minutes before adding in the banana, essences, coconut milk, oil and sugar. Whisk these together well.
- Sift in the flours, baking powder and salt. Mix to just combine. Stir in the coconut and optional extras (if using).
- Spoon into your muffin tins, filling about ¾ full. Bake for 20 – 25 minutes until tests done.
- Cool in tray for 5 minutes before transferring to rack.

Yum! Do you think this would work if I just sub 1 tsp vanilla for the vanilla essence and the banana essence? I don't have any essences...
