Coconut and raspberry muffins

    40 min

    I've been diagnosed as allergic to dairy and muffins on a Sunday morning for breakfast was just too good to give up!! You can replace the rasberries with other fruits - blueberries, strawberries, apple, rhubarb, dried fruits, bananas - even chocolate chips.

    I would add an ounce more coconut & the same of sugar. Frozen fruit is cheaper to use in the long run .. defrost first to drain any excess juice.  -  15 Apr 2011


    This is so easy to make I would recommend it to anybody. The muffins were so delicious, we ate them about 5 mins after they came out of the oven and they were melt in the mouth. I am so pleased to find such a scrummy dairy-free recipe  -  14 Feb 2012


    so easy to make and if I can make them anyone can, I used a bit more coconut (personal preference) and folded in frozen raspberries, they were lovely and moist and very tasty.  -  03 May 2011
