About

This recipe for blueberry coconut muffins is gluten-free and makes a great, hearty breakfast option. It’s still easy to find fresh blueberries at my local Mariano’s, which has a great variety of berry harvests available right now in Chicago.

One of the things I like about this recipe is the use of coconut flour, coconut oil and coconut milk to achieve a flavor-upon-flavor layering that is subtle enough to let the fresh blueberries be the star of the show. The coconut flour also has a mild sweetness that elevates and pairs well with the blueberries.
