       Preheat the oven to 350°F.  Grease and prepare three Jumbo MuffinTins.
     In a medium bowl, cream the Coconut oil and sugar until light and fluffy.  Then add in the extracts and continue whipping until fully creamed.
       Gradually, add banana and pumpkin.  mix well to combine all ingredients.
