We’ve had a busy week in the kitchen. We are working on a photography project for a client and have been cooking up a storm! Josh and I have a good system down. We make the recipes together, I take pictures while Josh cleans up and preps for the next recipe. Josh deserves a gold star for doing so many dishes:)

We made and shot seven recipes in one day. We were both tired at the end of the day, but our little Caleb was bursting with energy. I think he missed having our full attention. He got bored with the tupperware drawer, his books, and shows. So we took him to the park before bedtime.

The next morning, we prepped the kitchen again for another long day and I think Caleb knew what was going on because he started crying and kept saying “I’ll hold you.” We put our work aside for awhile to make Caleb a special breakfast treat, Blueberry Coconut Muffins.

Caleb loves blueberries. He asks for them multiple times a day, every day. I knew he would enjoy blueberry muffins for breakfast.

I decided to make a coconut muffin base because Caleb also loves coconut. Our Raspberry Coconut Waffles are Caleb’s favorite so I was hoping he would enjoy Blueberry Coconut Muffins too!

I used Gold Medal Flour’s White Whole Wheat Flour. I love baking with this flour. You get the benefits of whole grains with a nice and light texture. I also used coconut oil, lite coconut milk, and shredded coconut. Triple the coconut, triple the deliciousness!

The muffins were easy to whip up and only took about 20 minutes to bake. While I was taking photos, Caleb snuck up in front of me and helped himself to a muffin. I couldn’t get mad, these were his muffins. And I don’t blame him for not being able to wait, they smelled amazing!

I didn’t need to ask Caleb if he liked them. His blueberry face and big smile gave me my answer. Josh and I sat down at the table with our little pea and enjoyed Blueberry Coconut Muffins for breakfast. It was just what we all needed.

  1. Don’t you feel sooooo guilty when you’re trying to get something done and they’re standing there requesting you pick them up. I’m always like ahhh I need to get dinner done but I want to pick you up but but! Kay is a huge blueberry fan too (maybe they can go blueberry picking on their first date ;)). These look amazing

  2. I am often confused. . . when you say muffin pan, do you mean the LARGER of the cupcake -like pan, or regular cupcake pan and they are “called’ a muffin not a cupcake? Am I making myself clear?

  3. These look gorgeous both inside and out! Love the pic of Caleb’s hand reaching in for one! So sweet! Some of my most cherished moments are the ones when I put down the camera and enjoy a treat I’ve just baked with my little men!

  4. I am currently in a state of exhaustion from a certain photography project also…those long days of cooking and shooting are exhausting!! Glad to see you’re taking a mini break from it all with these muffins. The coconut triple threat within them sounds fabulous!

  5. These look so delicious! I just have one question for you: were you able to make a 1:1 substitution for the usual amount of butter? Did you have to add more liquid to the batter? (i’ve been wanted to make a coconut cake from my usual vanilla cake recipe and I thought that swapping the butter for coconut oil would help infuse a more consistent flavor, so I’m particularly curious about your experience!)

    thanks!!

  6. What’s with posting 9 pictures of the same muffins. Not even ingredients and method.
    This seems to be a trend. I just askin why?

  7. Hi Maria. I love your blog! Recipes and photos, both. Keep up a great work!
    7 recipes in 1 day, wow! I make 2 max a day and always feel guilty when my little guy gets bored. I totally know how it is to cook and photograph with little hands and people around.:) Anyways, just thought to say hi.:) Cheers, Olena.

  8. Maria, these are awesome! Love the coconut flavor. I could’ve eaten the entire batch. Also a great treat for my daughter who’s almost 2. Thanks!!!

  9. Finally tried these today. They were absolutely wonderful. I used whole wheat pastry flour, and they turned out great. Will definitely be making these regularly.

  10. These were fantastic! I threw in flax seeds and one batch I did with raspberries instead of blueberries. And yes, they are going in the kid’s lunches for school.
    Do you have a nutritional breakdown on these guys?

  11. I made these with raspberries and they were amazing. I also made them into mini-muffins (better for mini hands) and they cooked for the same amount of time. Next I am going to try pineapple because we have some pineapple that needs to be used today!

  12. These look delicious! Can I use regular whole wheat flour? It’s very hard to find white whole wheat flour where I live ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Do you think that it would be ok to sub regular milk for the coconut milk? We are currently in a snow storm, and that is the only ingredient that I am missing ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. This is my new favorite blueberry muffin recipe and my 3 year olds favorite to gobble up. I did leave out the sweetened coconut as we were out and added raw sugar to the tops.

  15. Hi Maria and Josh!
    I just wanted to say thanks for posting this recipe, I just made a batch of the muffins and they were delicious! I just shared the recipe on my blog and figured out they cost 38p (or 62 cents) each! That’s incredible : )
    Thanks,
    Alicia

  16. Delicious! I just made them with 1/3 cup of dried cranberries (I don’t like too many berries), almond milk, and flax. I had unsweetened coconut so I added about 2 tbsp of sugar. I also added a couple drops of almond extract because I had some extra on hand.

  17. I made these late last night and had to wait until this morning to try them! They are really good. I only had about 1/3 cup of sugar left, and it still sweet enough for us with the blueberries and sweetened coconut. I used Silk coconut milk, unsweetened, and it worked out great.
    Thank you for writing recipes with coconut oil instead of butter… I have been trying to substitute when possible, without changing the texture/taste too much!

  18. Hi!! I so am loving your website ever since!!!

    One question, is this gluten free recipe? If not, what can I convert this to be gluten free? โ˜บ๏ธโ˜บ๏ธ

  19. I cannot buy that type of flour where I live. I can use either whole wheat or all purpose. What amount do I use and which do I use?

  20. Great recipe. Love it! My little bubba will love it too! I substituted the sugar with 1/2 cup of honey (mixed in with the wet ingredients) and the muffins turned out delicious! I’ll be making this again!

  21. These look great! Do you use canned coconut milk or the coconut milk drink that comes in a carton? Thank you!ย 


  22. Came across your recipe last week when I was looking for a muffin recipe that I could adapt easily for a low iodine diet. First batch I made with blueberries and it was fantastic. Made this a second time today but instead of blueberries I used frozen cherries and almond extract and omitted the the flaked coconut. Just as good as the blueberry version. This will be in my regular rotation even after the diet restrictions are lifted.ย 


  23. Made these for a second time today. Instead of blueberries I used frozen sweet dark cherries and almond extract. I switched the flaked coconut for sliced almonds. ย This recipe is easily switched up to make different flavor combos. ย I love the fact that I usually have the ingredients on hand. Next time I will try orange and cranberry. This is going into my regular rotation.
