Blueberry Coconut Muffins- Gluten-free, Paleo, Refined-sugar Free, Dairy Free

Hi peeps!  Today's recipe is essentially this recipe for people with food allergies.  Maybe it's just me, but the blueberry coconut combo hits the spot and is the perfect seasonal treat.  Here's why:


1.  Blueberry + Coconut =  Delish

I think most people pair more tropical fruits like pineapple or mango with coconut, but blueberry goes so well.  Blueberries are sweet and tart, while coconuts are crunchy and tropical, so together, there is some amazing textural and flavor contrast.


2.  So Seasonal!

Berry farms are popular during the summer because it's berry season.  Coconut is tropical and tropical is typically associated with summer.  Boom.

3.  Those Colors Though...

I guess this point is more for crafty people (I'm not one of them and anyone who knows me can vouch for that).  Blueberries are obviously blue and coconut is a bright white that becomes slightly brown in the oven.  So these muffins are studded with blue polka dots and finished off with a sprinkling of coconut which, post-oven, is white and brown. Brown + white + blue =  Summer color scheme perfection.


I got the original muffin recipe from here , but I tweaked it, so I'll put it up.  Happy weekend baking 😊!
