Coconut Blueberry Muffins

The coconut. We love this multi-tasking nutritional gem. This tropical fruit is bursting with metabolism-boosting, disease-fighting and energy-soaring nutrients.  Add in some antioxidant-rich blueberries, and we get a guilt-free muffin perfect for breakfast or on-the go snacking to keep us supercharged all day! If you’ve never used coconut flour, try it out! It’s a great gluten-free and nut-free alternative to wheat flour. Don’t let the price scare you off as you’ll generally use 1/4 to 1/3 cup of coconut flour where 1 cup of wheat flour is called in a recipe. A healthy flour that goes a long way!

Free of gluten, dairy , nuts and refined sweeteners.
