Blueberry Coconut Muffins


My dad's blueberry bushes are producing some yummy fruit right now and so I just had to make some muffins.  Thankfully the weather was cool enough for baking.  I made a batch of regular blueberry muffins for everyone else and then a batch of gluten free ones for myself.  I keep them in a covered plastic box in the freezer and heat them up one by one as needed.

This is the recipe I used: Gluten Free Fruit Muffins.  It is the tried and true recipe from King Arthur that I love.  I skip the streusel topping as it is just not necessary.  So for these I added 1 and 1/2 cups blueberries and then, on a whim, I added about 3/4 cup of flaked coconut.  The muffins turned out perfectly!  Perhaps your family would enjoy them, too.

    Thank you for including the link to the gluten-free muffins. My husband prefers gluten-free and I don't have much experience baking this way. The coconut sounds yummy with the blueberries!

  2. Seems this is a good year for blueberries everywhere Mrs T. My hubs loves a parfait made of vanilla Greek yogurt, granola and blueberries. I exchange the blueberries for strawberries and bananas. Oh my...now I am hungry!! ;)

  4. What a nice group of ladies is gathered around my kitchen table!! It is so nice to see you all here.

    Gina-- the King Arthur website has great info on baking gluten free. It might be a good place for you to start in learning more about it. They have lots of recipes and I highly recommend them.

    Arlene -- those parfait ideas are making me hungry! Too bad I am out of granola, but I just might have the vanilla Greek yogurt (love that stuff!) with blueberries anyway! Thanks for sharing!

    Teri -- welcome!! I'm glad you have found your way here and I hope you enjoy all that you read. As you noted, it probably will take you some time to get through it, but I hope you find some encouraging thoughts, some new recipes and some fun craft and decorating ideas along the way.

    God bless you all!
    Mrs.T
