The muffin to curl up with during late night Hulu or Netflix sessions.
Here’s your opportunity to use every single form of coconut in one muffin. I used Bob’s Red Mill’s Coconut Flour (naturally gluten-free), shredded coconut and coconut milk but you can also replace the olive oil with coconut oil and substitute the cane sugar for equal parts coconut sugar.
Coconut is a fad right now for a good reason. It contains healthy fats, stimulates your metabolism, is a natural antibiotic and anti fungal and has even been said to fight candida. Trading flour, sugar, oil and milk with coconut milk not only eliminates the health detriments but also adds nutrient density.
Next time I bake these, I’ll add blueberries or chopped strawberries. The muffins are great on their own but are also perfect for adding all sorts of fresh or dried fruit and nuts. Dark chocolate chips would be phenomenal too!
