Gluten-Free Coconut Muffins

Gluten Free Coconut Muffins

This is your curl up with a blanket, cup of coffee and a book muffin.

Your pre or post workout muffin.

Your brunch with friends, make your co-workers love you muffin.

Your afternoon pick-me-up to tide you over to dinner.

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, plus coconut oil and 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!

First of all I want to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out. I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Thanks!

OH.MY.YUMMY.GOODNESS! I followed your recipe to a T and let me just say that I (and my family) have a new favorite! We've been searching high and low for the flavor of these muffins and your recipe truly delivered! I loved making them, loved reading your instructions, and loved eating them! Thank you so much from my family to yours!

Amandaaaaaaaaaaaaa! I'm so happy you like the muffins!!! I just love how coconutty, creamy, and mild they taste! Coconut is definitely not a for everyone food, so I'm glad you and your family enjoy these muffins as much as I do! Thank you so much for your sweet comment! Warm wishes! xo

Have you had the gluten free coconut muffins from soup plantation/sweet tomatoes? If so, do these taste similar to it? Thanks!
