  3. Stir the banana and pecans into the first large bowl, mixing until just combined. Stir the dark chocolate and coconut into the second large bowl, mixing until just combined.

  4. Use a spoon to divide the banana and pecan batter evenly among 6 of the paper cases, so that they are almost full. Repeat with the chocolate and coconut batter.
